Denton Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

When motorcycles are involved in a collision with a larger car or truck, the resulting injuries can be devastating for the motorcycle driver. Unfortunately, motorcycle crashes occur, and often because many drivers fail to notice them on the road. If you experienced injuries during a motorcycle crash, Denton motorcycle accident lawyers may be able to help.

Denton lawyers understand the frustrations motorcyclists may experience when cut-off the road or ignored by other drivers, but motorcycles have as much of a right to be on public roads as any other motor vehicle. Dedicated attorneys work hard to receive financial compensation from negligent or reckless drivers for the injured. En Español.

Common Injuries in Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists are significantly more exposed than other drivers on the road since they do not have siding or a roof. Due to this vulnerability and the weight difference between motorcycles and other motor vehicles, the injuries suffered by motorcyclists can be more critical that injuries experienced by other drivers involved in the same accident. Common motorcycle accident injuries include:

  • Spine and neck injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Road rash
  • Paralysis
  • Wrongful death

Texas law does not require motorcyclists to wear a helmet if certain conditions are satisfied. Drivers over 21 with the necessary medical insurance coverage or who took a motorcycle safety course do not have to wear a helmet. Although not required, wearing a helmet does protect motorcycle riders against head injuries. Electing to wear a helmet can also help build a stronger case that the victim did not contribute to any injuries experienced.

Cause of Injury in Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents are usually caused by negligent drivers, defective motorcycle parts, or poor driving conditions. A Denton motorcycle injury lawyer can help review the facts and circumstances of an accident to identify the potential defendants in a case.

Denton Motorcycle Accident Recovery

Motorcycle accident lawyers in Denton strive to obtain financial compensation for accident victims. Recovery can be sought for:

  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Medical bills
  • Property damage to a motorcycle

However, to be successful in a personal injury or wrongful death claim, the plaintiff must fundamentally demonstrate that the defendant was negligent, and this negligence caused the resulting injury or death.

According to Texas law, if the accident is partially the victim’s fault, they can still recover damages as long are they are not more than 50 percent at fault.

An individual should consult with an attorney before accepting a settlement from an insurance adjuster. Insurance adjusters will often try to offer victims settlements that are less than what they are otherwise entitled to receive.

I was in an accident in March and had injuries resulting from the crash. Obviously my first call was to a doctor to get... checked out but was told I was going to need physical therapy. My second call was to the McCraw Law Group. They took care of all of the grunt work so that all I had to focus on was getting better. They were very communicative about the process, and better yet, they were incredibly responsive to any emails, calls, and questions. I was very appreciative and thankful for all of their hard work. They are a great group of people to work with when you’re needing the help.read more
