Recovering Compensation After a Motorcycle Accident in Texas
Motorcycles are one of the most fun, cost-efficient, and stylish forms of transportation. However, they are also more dangerous than, say, cars, for obvious reasons. To make matters worse, the state of Texas does not require individuals over the age of 21 to wear helmets, provided they take a safety course first. If you are someone who has been involved in a motorcycle accident, you are most likely severely injured and are now seeking financial compensation to help you recover from any of the damages you have incurred. Please read on and reach out to our experienced Texas motorcycle accident attorney to learn more about how we can help.
What causes motorcycle accidents?
Motorcycle accidents are, at times, unavoidable. Unfortunately, the truth is, most of the time they are. When motorists behave negligently, they put all others on the road at serious risk. Some of the most common types of negligence we see in today’s world include texting while driving, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, speeding, ignoring traffic signs, and more.
How do I sue someone for an injury sustained in a motorcycle accident?
To win a personal injury lawsuit, you will have to hire an attorney who knows the ins and outs of the personal injury claims process. The main qualifier for financial compensation is proving whether you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence. Once you hire an attorney, he will then begin seeking out various types of evidence to prove your personal injury claim. Some of the most helpful types of evidence are pictures or videos of the accident and its aftermath, medical documents detailing the extent of the injuries you sustained, police reports of the incident, witness statements, and more. Our firm has been helping those injured in Texas for years, and we are ready to put our experience to work for you.
What is the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Texas?
The phrase “statute of limitations” simply refers to the amount of time you will have to file a personal injury claim against another party. Therefore, since the statute of limitations in Texas is two years, you will have two years from the date of your accident to pursue legal action. Failure to do so will generally result in you being denied your right to sue, so do not wait too long. Take it from us, the sooner you file, the better. We are ready to fight for the compensation you deserve and need.
