Seeking Maximum Compensation for Accident Victims in Central Texas

Riding a motorcycle is one of the most economical and practical ways to get around, but any motorcyclist knows that riding carries risks. Bikers incur some of the most serious injuries of any person traveling on the road. In 2017, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recorded that there were over 5,000 motorcyclist fatalities. Additionally, the percentage of these fatalities that were a result in unhelmeted motorcyclists was 39% of total fatalities.

If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident, you may be entitled to compensation. Our motorcycle accident lawyers in Dallas offer experienced and aggressive legal representation and are committed to pursuing the full compensation you deserve.

What are Texas Motorcycle Laws?

Motorcyclists and motor vehicle drivers can help protect one another on the roads by following the rules and regulations put in place by the Texas Department of Transportation. If these regulations are not followed, it could result in serious injury or harm to you or your loved ones.

  • In the state of Texas, motorcyclists are required to wear a helmet when operating a motorcycle if they are under the age of 21.
  • Riders who are over the age of 21 are permitted to ride without a helmet as long as they have completed a safety course or have appropriate insurance coverage.
  • Every motorcycle driver must complete a department-approved training course to be eligible to receive a motorcycle license
  • A safety inspection is required for all motorcyclists in Texas
  • It is required that all motorcyclists have valid registration and are covered under acceptable insurance in the state of Texas

Primary Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Although insurance companies might want us to think that bikers are reckless, a large majority of motorcycle crashes are caused by the careless actions of other drivers.

Common forms of car driver negligence that lead to motorcycle crashes include:

  • Speeding
  • Failure to yield
  • Texting while driving
  • Failure to follow traffic signs
  • DUI
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Opened car doors
  • Sudden stops

Unfortunately, proving that someone else is at fault for your motorcycle crash is not an easy task. The burden of proof is upon the biker to compile enough evidence to support the claim that the other driver caused the accident. This makes it crucial to hire an experienced personal injury lawyer who knows how to investigate motorcycle accidents, gather evidence, and build a strong case.
