Travis County Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
With more than 1,000,000 residents, Travis County is one of the most highly populated areas in all of Texas. In such a densely populated county, some people search for a way to break free, and on the road, a motorcycle can offer this freedom unlike any other vehicle. Unfortunately, along with this freedom comes the great danger of accidents, which can result in some of the worst injuries possible on the road.

With this experience, we can provide you with the insight and guidance you need if you or a loved one has been involved in a crash caused by another's negligence and need to know what to do next.

Your Rights Under Texas Law
Texas law allows individuals who have been hurt, or the family members of those killed, in Texas motorcycle accidents to pursue payment, known as compensation, for their losses. This is known as a personal injury claim or lawsuit and depends on the victim and their legal representation proving the fault of the responsible party. While this can occur in a courtroom, it is most often done through negotiations with the insurance company of the at-fault party.
Most important to remember is that personal injury and property damage claims have two years to be filed under the statute of limitations in Texas Civil Practice & Remedy Code Section 16.003.
The Road to Compensation and Recovery
For injured Travis County motorcyclists, there are two main goals to achieve in the pursuit of compensation from those who have caused a crash: prove that the at-fault party caused the accident and that the compensation you are claiming is truly needed for your losses.
To prove fault, evidence from the scene of the crash and witness testimony can help to successfully recreate the accident in a detailed manner. In doing so, it can show what caused the accident to occur and how the crash caused the injuries to be suffered.
Second, by using medical records, diagnoses, proof of surgeries, and proof of the need for future surgery and medical care, a victim can show how much finances have been lost and how much will be lost in the future. By proving this, fair and full compensation can be gained, which will be used to help a victim and his or her family to recover physically, financially, and emotionally to the best of their abilities.
