With its wide open roads and beautiful landscapes, Texas is a great place for a motorcycle ride. However, motorcyclists face risks of accidents and injuries, especially since they have fewer protections than car drivers. Unfortunately, motorcyclists also face unfair biases from others and often receive unfair treatment. If you have sustained injuries in a motorcycle accident through no fault of your own, you have the right to contact our dedicated legal team.
At Hilliard Martinez Gonzales, we have over 30 years of experience fighting for injury victims in the Odessa area. Our attorneys have the knowledge and experience to advocate for the compensation you deserve. We are here to help you understand Texas motorcycle laws, who may be liable for the accident, and what your case is worth.
While motorcyclists must follow all regular traffic laws in Texas, the state outlines specific laws that only apply to those on motorcycles. These laws include the following:
These Texas laws are meant to keep motorcyclists and those around them safe. While Texas law only requires motorcyclists to wear helmets if under 21, those of all ages should wear helmets to protect themselves from potential head injuries.
After sustaining injuries from a motorcycle accident, we may be able to help you hold the at-fault party accountable. First, we have to determine whose negligence caused the accident. Liable parties in a motorcycle accident may include the following:
In many cases, multiple parties share fault for the accident. When this happens, each party is assigned a fault percentage. The amount of compensation due is split between responsible parties. If the injured party is partly at fault, the percentage gets deducted from their compensation.
When seeking medical attention and altering your lifestyle after sustaining injuries in a motorcycle accident, you may worry about expenses. Our devoted attorneys may be able to fight for you and compensate for your losses. Depending on the details of your case, you may recover the following damages:
When determining how much compensation you deserve, it’s essential to have as many details of the accident as possible. Therefore, after seeking immediate medical attention, you may want to take as many pictures and videos of the damage, the police report, and other paperwork as possible. Keeping track of medical records will also assist your lawyer in determining your compensation.
Unfortunately, insurance companies may try to lowball you with their initial offer. Our skilled attorneys may be able to negotiate with insurance companies and keep track of offers and counteroffers to better your chances of achieving fair compensation.
Taking on the challenges of filing a claim after a motorcycle accident alone can be overwhelming. Therefore, contacting a lawyer after a crash is crucial in bettering your chances of achieving fair compensation and holding the liable party accountable. Our motorcycle accident attorneys may be able to support you in every aspect of your case, including the following:
We dedicate ourselves to advocating for your rights and fair compensation. Our firm operates on a contingency fee basis, so you do not pay us anything unless we win your case.
Texas is the perfect place for a motorcycle ride with its gorgeous roads and scenery. However, motorcycle riders face higher risks of injury due to the lack of protection.
