Our experienced and dedicated Dallas motorcycle accident lawyer can aggressively pursue your claim ensuring that you receive adequate amount of compensation for the pain, injuries and damages incurred. We’ll work hard to get you every dollar that you deserve in compensation for all the losses including but not limited to hospitalization, medical treatment, loss of income due to disability or long recovery time and vehicle damage.
Our rich experience and strong knowledge about the different laws covering motorcycle accidents in the State of Texas like helmet laws, highway traffic laws, manufacturer recalls, and other related motorcycle crashes statutes enables us to protect your rights and get you as much compensation as possible from the accident.
Did you know that 53 percent of the riders who get fatally injured in crashes include riders without helmets? Although according to the Texas Law pertaining to motorcycle helmets, if you’re above 21 and have proof that you’ve successfully completed a training course for motorcycle safety, and you have a medical insurance policy, than you’re not required to wear a helmet when riding a motorcycle.
However, it is important to understand that the lack of a helmet may affect your compensation if you suffered from a head injury during a crash. But if the injuries are not related to the head then whether you were or not wearing a helmet is irrelevant to the case.
As motorcycle crashes are so severe, the first thing that you should do is dial 911 to have an ambulance and a police officer sent to the accident scene. The ambulance will take you to the nearest hospital for medical assistance. However, if you’re in a position to take photos of the accident scene then do so for evidence purpose. Also, make sure to note the plate number of the car that hit you, and get the contact information of the driver too.
If you’re badly injured, then don’t worry about evidence collection. As you seek medical assistance, get in touch with our Dallas motorcycle accident lawyer. We’ll get to the work right away to preserve evidence for your case. We’ll also deal with insurance companies and take action to seek compensation for physical, financial and mental harm caused to you due to the accident.
After the accident, you’re most likely to be contacted by an insurance adjuster from the person responsible for the accident, who will want to take a statement from you. If this happens, don’t get involved with the insurance adjuster, instead decline politely or tell them to contact your Dallas motorcycle accident lawyer.
Make sure you don’t talk about the crash with anyone as anything you say can be used against you by the insurer to minimize or even deny your accident claim thereby protecting their profits by limiting what they pay to you.
