Motorcycle Accident Attorney for Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Cases in Seguin and San Marcos

Motorcyclists share Texas roadways with cars, trucks, and other passenger vehicles, but they are inherently at greater risk of injury and death because their vehicles provide less protection in the event of an accident. Nationwide, motorcyclists are 28 times more likely to die in an accident than occupants of other passenger vehicles. In 2018, the state of Texas alone accounted for over 400 fatalities and nearly 2,000 serious injuries from motorcycle accidents.

Wearing a helmet and practicing safe driving habits can lower the risk of injury and fatality, but all too often accidents still happen due to the negligence of another driver. If you are the victim of an accident, you need an experienced lawyer to help you build a case and seek the full compensation you are entitled to. At New Braunfels Personal Injury Attorney, Inc., we have more than 20 years of experience representing victims and their families in personal injury and wrongful death cases, and we want to serve you with the personal attention you deserve.

Common Causes and Injuries in Motorcycle Wrecks

As with other car accidents, negligence in a motorcycle accident occurs when a driver's unsafe behavior is the cause of the accident and injury. Common examples of negligent behavior leading to accidents include speeding and aggressive driving, drunk driving, and distracted driving. With motorcycles specifically, another common form of negligence is a driver's failure to detect the motorcyclist when, for example, changing lanes on a highway or turning left at an intersection.

Injuries from motorcycle crashes are more likely to be catastrophic or fatal since drivers lack the protection of an enclosed vehicle, and injuries can result from both collisions with other vehicles and high-speed contact with road surfaces and stationary objects like telephone poles, medians, and guardrails. Some of the most frequent include:

  • Skin injuries/road burn
  • Broken and shattered bones
  • Internal bleeding and organ damage
  • Neck and spine injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Traumatic brain injuries

The effects of these injuries can be long-lasting or even permanent, with high, ongoing medical and care expenses. A motorcycle accident lawyer can help you receive the greatest possible compensation to offset these costs as well as lost income, living expenses, and more. Our New Braunfels Personal Injury Attorney can make the aftermath of the accident more manageable.

Regularly engaging in safe driving behavior gives you the best chance of not only avoiding accidents and injuries in the first place but also obtaining higher compensation if an accident does happen. However, you may be eligible for some compensation even if your actions were partially responsible for the accident, provided that another party bears greater responsibility. Our attorney can help you determine where your case stands and whether any compensation is possible.

Quality Service from Our Guadalupe County Auto Accident Law Firm

The sooner after your accident that you contact a personal injury attorney, the greater chance that you can get a fair and full settlement. We offer free consultations to make it easy for you to begin the legal process, and we start by helping you locate any liable parties and gather evidence about the accident to make your claim. We will also work with you to determine all damages for which you may be due compensation, including both economic damages like the cost of your motorcycle, expensive medical bills, lost wages, living expenses, and rehab, as well as non-economic damages like mental anguish and pain and suffering that often result from long-term, debilitating injuries.

We also save you stress by representing you in settlement negotiations with the other parties' insurance companies. Our knowledge and experience are especially helpful for accidents involving commercial trucks, when the driver is backed by a strong insurance and legal team. We always strive to reach the best possible settlement for you or to bring your case to trial if a fair settlement is not possible.
