Proving the Other Party Was at Fault for Your Accident
Your motorcycle accident attorney will work to prove that the defendant caused your accident and is responsible for your injuries and damages. Factors that may help establish that someone else is responsible for your accident include:
Reckless or Negligent Behavior
If the other party was distracted or driving recklessly and are at fault for your accident. If the other party violated traffic laws or was driving negligently and caused your accident, we may be able to hold them responsible for your damages.
Poor Road Conditions
The road conditions may not have been safe for operating a vehicle. Were there cracks, bumps, or potholes in the road? Was there proper signage? Were construction areas adequately blocked off?
If poor road conditions led to your accident, we may be able to hold the government entity responsible for the road conditions liable for your accident.
Defective Motorcycle Parts
The manufacturer may have used parts that were defective. The manufacturer may have failed to submit a recall to motorcycle owners. In such cases, we may be able to hold the motorcycle manufacturer liable for an accident related to the defective part.

Motorcycle Damages You May Be Able to Recover
Some of the damages you may be able to recover after a motorcycle wreck include:
Medical expenses include visits to the emergency room, ambulance rides, hospitalization, surgeries, follow-up doctor visits, or prescription medication. Medical expenses should also cover future and ongoing medical care, including physical therapy, future surgeries, or long-term medication costs.
Lost Wages & Reduced Earning Capacity
If you had to miss time from work due to your accident, you may qualify to recover the value of your lost wages. If you suffered a permanent disability that reduces your earning capacity or prevents you from returning to work, you may pursue a recovery for your future lost wages, employment benefits, pension, and other employment-related losses.
Pain and Suffering
You may also be able to seek recovery for your emotional distress, loss of quality of life, and physical and emotional pain and suffering.
The Claims Process in a Motorcycle Accident
Typically, we start the process by filing an insurance claim with the other party’s insurer. We may attempt to negotiate a settlement with the insurer, but if the insurance company refuses to offer a fair settlement, we are not afraid to file a lawsuit.
If we file a lawsuit, we start by filing a Complaint that outlines your case. The defendant then files an Answer, and both sides may participate in the discovery process. We then attempt to negotiate an out-of-court settlement, but if we are unable to reach a fair agreement with the defendant, we will take the case to trial.
The statute of limitations to file a lawsuit for a motorcycle accident in Texas is two years in most cases. If you fail to meet this deadline, you may be unable to take legal action.
