Austin Motorcycle Accident Victim Lawyers
Drunk driving accidents often result in devastating injuries or even fatalities. Injuries in motorcycle accidents involving drunk drivers are typically catastrophic or even deadly. The rider and passenger often have very little protection other than the helmets and clothes they are wearing. This makes motorcycle riders and their passengers extremely vulnerable in DUI accidents. Driving under the influence is clearly negligence because the driver makes a choice to drive in an impaired state and put others on the roadway in grave danger. While drunk drivers are often punished by the criminal court, it does nothing to compensate an injured victim or the family of a deceased victim that has suffered significant financial, physical, and emotional losses.

Drunk driving collisions involving motorcyclists often result in major, if not catastrophic, injuries. Some of the common types of injuries sustained in such collisions include the following:
- Nerve injuries
- Burn injuries
- Internal organ damage
In a drunk driving collision, in addition to facing criminal charges and penalties, the at-fault driver can also be held financially responsible for the victims' injuries, damages, and losses. Victims of these accidents suffer physically, emotionally, and financially. Their family members struggle to care for them. There is uncertainty regarding how long recovery may take, or when, if at all, the victim can return to work. Injured victims in such cases can seek compensation for damages, including medical expenses; lost wages; hospitalization and rehabilitation costs; disabilities; pain and suffering; permanent injuries; and emotional stress.
Although negligence or wrongdoing may be straightforward in a DUI case, dealing with insurance companies can still be a convoluted issue. Although insurance adjusters may appear to be friendly and understanding, it is important to understand that their goal is to make money for the insurance company. Most of them accomplish that goal by denying your claim or reducing the value of your claim. This is why motorcycle accident victims need an aggressive attorney on their side who will fight and overcome these insurance companies' hardball tactics.
