Austin Motorcycle Accident Law Firm
Traumatic events such as motorcycle accidents not only take a physical and emotional toll on victims and their families, but also place a tremendous financial burden on everyone involved. It may be difficult to predict how long the victim may take to recover. It may seem as if your life has been turned upside down. You are probably grappling with a range of emotions such as fear, anger, and grief. For many victims and families, there is also uncertainty about the future.
During these traumatic and challenging times, it is important that you have access to reliable information regarding your legal rights and options. When a motorcycle collides with a larger vehicle, there is a high probability that the rider is the one who will suffer the more serious injuries. Often, car and truck drivers fail to remember that they share the road with motorcycles. This puts motorcyclists at an increased risk of serious injury and death.

Driver negligence is a common cause of serious injury or fatal motorcycle accidents. Drivers who are intoxicated, distracted, fatigued, or speeding can cause major motorcycle collisions. In addition to negligent drivers, dangerous roadway conditions also pose a significant hazard to motorcyclists. Due to their size, motorcycles are not as visible as larger vehicles and motorcyclists may be particularly in danger on a poorly designed roadway where visibility is hampered. In addition, motorcycle accidents are also caused by defective motorcycle parts.
Proving fault and demonstrating how your accident and injuries were caused by negligence in your claim or lawsuit is essential to getting the money that you deserve. Accident reconstruction, medical evidence, witness testimony, and other effective strategies can help you reach a favorable case outcome.
If a negligent driver caused your motorcycle accident, please understand that you have rights. You may be able to receive compensation to cover damages including, but not limited to, medical costs; lost wages; hospitalization; rehabilitation; disabilities; pain and suffering; and emotional distress.
