Legal Help After a Motorcycle Accident in the Houston Area

You have likely heard it said that when your motorcycle crashes, you crash. This saying is very true. Motorcycles offer very little protection in the event of an accident. Many riders are thrown from their bikes and have only the protection of the gear they are wearing. These accidents can be devastating for the rider involved. Motorcycle accidents often lead to serious injuries that can have an extreme impact on your financial security as well as your physical and mental health.

At The Hatton Law Firm PLLC, we are committed to helping injured motorcyclists recover compensation from negligent drivers who have caused them harm. Careless drivers routinely endanger motorcyclists in a number of ways. If you have been hit by a vehicle while riding a motorcycle, we may be able to help you recover compensation for a variety of losses and expenditures related to the accident.

How Negligent Drivers in Texas Can Harm Motorcyclists

One of our goals as plaintiff's attorneys in motorcycle accident cases is to identify the specific careless behaviors the driver was engaged in when a motorcycle wreck happened. We routinely identify types of driver negligence like:

  • Failing to check blind spots - Few spots on the road are more dangerous for a motorcyclist than in a driver's blind spot when they decide to change lanes.
  • Close following distance - What could be a minor "fender bender" rear-end collision for a car could be devastating for a motorcyclist.
  • Distracted driving - It takes a higher degree of attentiveness for a driver to spot a low-profile motorcycle as opposed to another passenger vehicle. A driver who is looking at their phone and only glancing up at the road may never even notice a person riding a motorcycle.
  • Intoxicated driving - While drunk drivers are a lethal danger to everyone on or near the roads, they are a particular risk to motorcyclists. Drunk drivers may overlook people on motorcycles or cause significant harm if they drive unsafely.

There are a number of ways that drivers can act carelessly and ultimately harm a motorcyclist. Catastrophic injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries, can easily happen when a motorcyclist is struck by a larger vehicle.

Houston Area Legal Help for Those Who Have Lost a Family Member

Motorcycle accidents are among the most serious types of motor vehicle accidents, and they commonly lead to fatalities. Even the most responsible and safety-conscious rider who is wearing all the right gear can tragically lose their life at the hands of a careless driver. If your loved one has been killed in a motorcycle wreck, our attorneys may be able to help you file a wrongful death action against the liable party.

In a wrongful death action, you may be able to recover compensation for things like the loss of your immediate family member's income and the loss of their companionship. While no financial award can undo the harm done to your family, filing a wrongful death action can help you avoid financial losses and hold the responsible driver or party accountable.

Compensation for Motorcycle Accidents in Texas

The amount of compensation you recover for a motorcycle crash may address a wide range of economic and non-economic losses and harms. You may be eligible to recover compensation for damages like:

  • Current future and medical costs
  • Lost income, including compensation for loss of earning potential
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment in life

There are many other categories of compensation that may be available depending on the nature of the accident and how it has affected your life. Our attorneys will take the time to carefully calculate the amount of damages you may be entitled to receive.
