How Can Texas Law Help Motorcycle Accident Victims Pursue Compensation?

Posted on in Car Accident

TX injury lawyerMotorcycle riders are at an increased risk of serious injury and death from accidents with other vehicles. Unprotected by the chassis of a car or truck and easily exposed to external hazards, accidents that would be minor for a passenger in a larger, enclosed vehicle can be far more dangerous on a motorcycle. While motorcycle riders have a reputation of engaging in risky behavior, the research shows that most motorcycle collisions actually happen when drivers of larger vehicles do not see motorcycles because they violate the motorcycle’s right of way. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident in Texas, it is essential to get help from a personal injury attorney who can help you understand how Texas law protects you.

Texas Law Allows You to Obtain Compensation For a Variety of Injuries

While most people know that personal injury victims may be able to obtain compensation for the physical injuries they have suffered, personal injury lawsuits can result in damages for a variety of other physical and nonphysical losses, including:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Motorcycle repairs or replacement
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Pain, suffering, distress, and anguish
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Lowered quality of life
  • Loss of companionship
  • Funeral expenses

Texas Law Can Protect You Even if You Were Partly at Fault

Sometimes an accident is caused because of dangerous or negligent actions from both the motorcyclist and the vehicle with which he or she collided. For example, if a crash happens when a motorcyclist is driving 10 miles per hour above the speed limit and a car turns left in front of the motorcycle because the driver fails to see the incoming bike, both parties may be at fault. But if less than 50% of the fault is yours, you can still bring a suit against the other responsible party.
