What If I Was Not Wearing a Helmet?
Texas law requires all riders under the age of 21 to wear a helmet when operating a motorcycle. Riders over the age of 21 may ride without a helmet if they have completed a motorcycle safety course or can prove that they maintain health insurance.
If another driver caused your crash, you are eligible to pursue at least partial damages, even if you were in violation of this law. In many cases, the at-fault driver’s insurance company will try to deny you compensation by claiming you caused your own injuries. Our attorneys can protect you from such claims and fight for the maximum compensation possible in your case.
What Should I Do After a Motorcycle Crash?
While most injuries are readily apparent at the scene of an accident, not all are obvious due to the body’s shock response to trauma. That is why it is important to receive medical treatment as soon as possible after a motorcycle accident.
While receiving the proper medical care is paramount, the next important step is speaking to an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer about your legal options. In the meantime, it can be helpful to document all conversations you have had with potential witnesses. You should also keep a journal of your day-to-day experiences in the aftermath of the accident.
The sooner you can consult with an attorney, the better your chances are of recovering maximum compensation for your injuries. Insurance company adjusters can be difficult to work with. They will generally record all conversations with you, sometimes hoping to trip you up and give them fodder for denying or reducing your claim. If you work with us, we can handle any communication with the insurance company and ensure your rights remain protected.
How Can I Pursue Compensation?
If someone’s negligence caused your accident, you can recover compensation for both economic and non-economic damages.
Economic damages include any accident-related expense for which you have documentation of a specific dollar amount. Medical bills generally comprise the largest percentage of economic damages. Bills for accident-related mental health care also fall into this category, as do purchases of certain household services, mobility devices, disability accommodations, and therapy. In wrongful death cases, funeral and burial expenses, final medical expenses, and survivor-related claims also fall under this category.
Non-economic damages refer to categories of losses that do not have a readily quantifiable value. Pain and suffering damages generally comprise the largest percentage of non-economic damages.
Our lawyers will determine a fair value for your economic and non-economic damages before we begin settlement negotiations with the at-fault driver’s insurer. We will request fair compensation for your current and future losses associated with the crash.
