Dallas Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

motorcycle accident with EMTs on the sceneWe Passionately Protect the Rights of and Pursue Maximum Compensation for Motorcycle Accident Victims in Dallas

According to the Texas Department of Transportation, in the past decade the number of registered motorcycles has doubled. People just seem to love riding motorcycles. Some find it exhilarating while others prefer them because motorcycles are real money savers in terms of fuel consumption and maintenance.

However, motorcyclists often overlook the downside of riding motorcycles which is that in the event of an accident, they are at a higher risk of sustaining fatal injuries than those in other vehicles. This is, of course, motorcyclists have zero protection when an accident occurs, and are guaranteed to hit the pavement at the very least.

Statistics show that:

  •  In a crash, motorcyclists are 5 times at a higher risk of injuries, and nearly 37 times more likely to get killed.
  •  Over a course of 1 year, 463 people died in motorcycle accidents including 430 riders and 33 passengers.
  •  Approximately 20% of all car accidents in Texas involve motorcycles.
  •  Sixty percent of all accidents that involve motorcycles are not the fault of motorcyclists.

The Texas Department of Transportation indicates that more than 5600 motorcyclists sustained serious injuries in 2012 alone. Since motorcycles are often associated with dangerous behavior, the insurance company involved in a motorcycle accident claim may look to blame riders for accidents. However, in many of these cases, it’s another motorist who is responsible for an accident that involved a motorcycle.

Thompson Law Core Values:

Common Causes of and Injuries in Motorcycle Accidents in Dallas

Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents in Dallas include:

  • Carelessness or negligence of the other driver
  • Over speeding,
  • Mechanical failures
  • Defective design of the motorcycle,
  • Faulty motorcycle repair work
  • Improper maintenance or bad condition of the road such as slippery roads,
  • Left turns
  • Opening of a car door
  • Improper changing of lanes,
  • Distracted driving
  • Being struck by a car from the back

Motorcycle accidents can result in serious injuries to the motorcyclist such as:

  • Amputations
  • Paralysis
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Brain injury
  • Internal bleeding
  • Organ damage
  • Fractured bones
  • Facial injuries 
  • Chronic pain
  • Road burn
  • Fractured bones
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Severe lacerations
  • Scarring
  • Disfigurement
  • Loss of limbs
  • Concussions
  • Sometimes even death

No matter what the cause of accident might be, if you have been seriously injured or have lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident caused by someone else’s negligence, then by the law of the state, you deserve to be compensated.

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.

Does Not Wearing a Helmet in a Motorcycle Accident Affect the Victim’s Injury Claim?

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.

What Should You Do After a Motorcycle Accident in Texas?

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.

However, if you have a skilled and experienced lawyer from Thompson Law LLP representing your case, we’ll protect you and seek maximum compensation for the injuries and losses incurred due to the motorcycle accident.

FAQs

I Crashed My Motorcycle When a Driver Made a Left Turn in Front of Me. Who’s at Fault?2018-11-18T22:04:15-06:00

Unless you ran a red light or were exceeding the speed limit, the driver turning left is responsible.

I’ve Been in a Motorcycle Accident. What Should I Do?2020-01-23T15:43:50-06:00

I’ve Been in a Motorcycle Accident. What Should I Do? 

Sadly, people tend to jump to blame motorcyclists for causing collisions, even though basic motorcycle training helps make motorcyclists among the most conscientious and aware drivers on the road. In fact, more often than not, the other motorist is at-fault in collisions with motorcycles. Remember these 6 steps to make sure you are safe and to help preserve your legal case right from the start: 

  1. GET SAFE. Stop your motorcycle or move it to a safe place if you are able. Stay close to the scene without obstructing traffic. Activate your emergency flashing lights to prevent other cars from striking you. 
  2. CALL 9-1-1. If you are seriously injured, be sure you request an ambulance when you call. A police report may become critical evidence in determining liability in your case. The police will respond to wrecks involving injuries but may not send a unit for cases involving property damage only.  
  3. TAKE PHOTOS. If you are able to safely do so, take photos of your vehicle, the other vehicle (including the license plate), and the surrounding scene of the accident. You will also want to photograph the other driver’s license and insurance card. 
  4. GATHER INFO. After making sure you and passengers are okay, exchange contact information and insurance information with the other driver. 
  5. FIND WITNESSES. If there are witnesses to the accident, take down their names and contact information. Their statements may help resolve any liability disputes. 
  6. CALL THOMPSON LAW. The experienced team of attorneys, investigators and paralegals are ready to assist you right away. You can even call us to meet you at the scene of an accident.
Do I Need to Wear a Helmet When I’m on My Motorcycle?2020-01-23T12:22:12-06:00

While Texas law does not legally require you to wear a helmet, basic motorcycle training tells you to wear “All the Gear, All the Time” – and this is just as important for when you are in an accident. Not only will wearing a helmet help reduce the likelihood of serious injury, but refusing to wear a helmet can work against you when trying to prove your case. Unfortunately, an insurance carrier adjuster, or even a jury, may believe that your failure to wear a helmet contributed to the severity of your injuries and try to blame you as the victim for being injured. There simply is no reason to give the insurance adjuster or a jury any reason to put any fault on you or to endanger yourself. Wear a helmet, always! 

How Can I Tell If My Helmet Meets Federal Safety Standards?2020-01-23T12:23:11-06:00

Check the back of the helmet – there should be a sticker that tells you if the helmet meets one of the three safety standard certifications. There are three major safety standards for motorcycle helmets: DOT (“Department of Transportation”, ECE “Economic Commission for Europe”, and SNELL (“Snell Memorial Foundation”). If a helmet has one of these safety certifications, this means that it has passed testing by one of these organizations, which is a sign of the helmet’s quality and safety rating. The most basic safety standard is usually considered to be DOT, and ECE is very similar. SNELL is considered to be a more demanding safety standard. At minimum, you should try to purchase helmets with these safety standards, and preferably DOT/SNELL, for the highest safety rated helmets. Additionally, a helmet is a purchase you should always buy new. A previously owned or used helmet may have been damaged or compromised in a way that has diminished its structure and features, leaving you vulnerable to more severe injury. 

How Can My State Force Me to Wear a Helmet?2018-11-18T22:11:44-06:00

Helmet laws are valid in many states. By having Helmet laws, states can reduce the risk of injury to the motorcycle driver, and contribute towards lower health care and insurance payouts.

Can I have a free consultation about my case?2020-01-23T13:00:51-06:00

Yes! Thompson Law is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to provide free consultations. If you have been injured in a truck wreck or car accident, hurt in a slip and fall incident, or otherwise injured from the negligence of another person or party, give us a call any time at 1-800-LION-LAW. We can speak to you over the phone, chat online through our website or social media outlets, or arrange an in-person meeting at your convenience. Our team is ready to help! 

If I’m in a Minor Motorcycle Accident, Should I Still Call A Lawyer?2020-01-23T12:08:45-06:00

Given the vulnerability of motorcycle riders, even minor, lowspeed accidents can result in lifelong injuries, and the severity of your injures might not be apparent right away. Insist on emergency medical attention after any motorcycle accident, as speed of care can make a life changing difference. Additionally, the motorcyclist involved in the accident is usually not the person at-fault for the collision, so it is important to make sure that the details of the event are correctly represented. Contact an experienced motorcycle accident attorney as soon as possible to help preserve the details of your accident and to explain your right to compensation from the responsible party.

I was just in an accident. What do I need to do first?2020-01-23T15:44:56-06:00

Being in a wreck, especially on the highway, can be a terrifying experience. Remember these 6 steps to make sure you are safe and to help preserve your legal case right from the start: 

  1. GET SAFE. Stop your vehicle/move it to a safe place if you are able. Stay close to the scene without obstructing traffic. Activate your emergency flashing lights to prevent other cars from striking you. 
  2. CALL 9-1-1. If you are seriously injured, be sure you request an ambulance when you call. A police report may become critical evidence in determining liability in your case. The police will respond to wrecks involving injuries but may not send a unit for cases involving property damage only.  
  3. TAKE PHOTOS. If you are able to safely do so, take photos of your vehicle, the other vehicle (including the license plate), and the surrounding scene of the accident. You will also want to photograph the other driver’s license and insurance card.  
  4. GATHER INFO. After making sure you and passengers are okay, exchange contact information and insurance information with the other driver.  
  5. FIND WITNESSES. If there are witnesses to the accident, take down their names and contact information. Their statements may help resolve any liability disputes.  
  6. CALL THOMPSON LAW. The experienced team of attorneys, investigators and paralegals are ready to assist you right away. You can even call us to meet you at the scene of an accident.  
I was a passenger in an accident. Can I still claim damages?2020-01-23T13:01:51-06:00

Yes! Passengers in auto accidents are entitled to make claims for their damages and injuries too.  As a negligence-free passenger, who you make a claim against (one or both drivers and their insurance companies), and what coverages are available (third-party liability, first-party coverages, and/or personal injury protection), depends on the specific facts and circumstances of the car wreck.  Injured passengers should call the personal injury attorneys at Thompson Law to assist in navigating these complex issues so that they may receive the fair compensation they deserve.    

After an accident, how do my medical expenses and other damages get paid?2020-01-23T13:02:50-06:00

An insurance company will not pay medical expenses or other damages as they come due; rather, after they have accepted liability, the insurance company will make a one-time, lump-sum final payment only at the end of your case.  Dealing with medical expenses, and obtaining the proper medical care, after an accident can be tricky. But it does not have to be! Call the personal injury attorneys at Thompson Law, who can explain how to deal with the “day-of” hospital bills, how to continue to receive the care you need, and ultimately how to recover an appropriate settlement that takes care of your bills from the incident as well as fair and just compensation for you. 

How long is the case process?2020-01-23T13:03:34-06:00

Let’s be honest: this isn’t a legal show on TV and your case will not settle in the next hour – or even tomorrow.  The true answer is: it depends.  We find that most cases settle within 7-10 months from date of incident; but the timeframe in your case could be shorter or longer depending on: the facts and circumstances of the accident; the length of time it takes you to complete medical treatment; and the character of the insurance company, or companies, involved in your case.  In the event that your case cannot settle pre-litigation and it becomes necessary to file a lawsuit, that process alone can take 1 to 2 years due to the court system and legal process necessary to prepare for trial.  But because so much of the timeline depends on the facts and circumstances of your unique case, call Thompson Law today to discuss.
