Austin Motorcycle Accident Claim Lawyers
As a motorcycle accident victim, it is common to feel overwhelmed about your situation. You've suffered a potentially serious injury that has not only kept you from riding, but also working. The medical bills are piling up and your motorcycle has been damaged, making looking on the bright side near impossible. But you are not helpless and your situation is not hopeless. Motorcyclists have just as much right to the road and the drivers of cars and trucks, but other drivers don't always see it that way. Whether they are inattentive, distracted, or just believe that their larger vehicle gives them more right to the road, other drivers create dangerous situations for motorcyclists. Through such negligence, motorcycle riders suffer serious and life-threatening injury and some even lose their lives. Such behavior on the part of other drivers is unacceptable and you have the right to hold them accountable for their negligence.

You are in a very unpredictable situation after a motorcycle accident. Will insurance pay for your medical care or deny your claim? Will your recovery take two months or two years? Will you ever be able to ride again? Taking all available steps to protect your unpredictable future is important, but to do that you need to be aware of those steps and if you even have the option to take them.
Financial security is necessary for recovery and you can obtain that by filing a civil suit against the party at fault for your accident. But to be successful, you have to prove that negligence caused the accident. If negligence did not cause your injuries, you may not be able to obtain any compensation. Wondering if your accident qualifies for a successful injury claim? The following common causes of motorcycle accidents may point to negligence and entitle you to pursue compensation:
- Distracted driving;
- Drunk driving;
- Failure to yield the right-of-way;
- Fatigued driving; and
With the help of an experienced motorcycle accident attorney, you can gather all the appropriate evidence to determine fault and hold the negligent party responsible for the losses you've suffered. Damages that you may recover in the form of financial compensation include:
