Common Motorcycle Accident Questions

The reality is…if you’re a Texas biker, it’s not a matter of if you’ll be involved in an accident, but when. Knowing the right (and wrong) things to do at the scene can be critical to ensuring your immediate legal and financial protection as well as your physical and emotional well-being down the road.

HURT IN A CRASH?

Here are the answers to the most common questions clients have when they have been injured in a motorcycle accident

What should I do after a crash?

Gather information such as the name of other driver, driver’s license information, vehicle license plate, witness information, take pictures of the vehicles, scene, other drivers, witnesses etc…, call the police for a report and contact us for help.

Do I need a motorcycle lawyer?

The short answer is YES! Shouldn’t your lawyer know about the things that really matter in a motorcycle crash, such as:

  • How a bike handles
  • Proper braking
  • Counter-steering
  • Tank slapping
  • Tar snakes
  • Uneven or grooved pavement

Can’t I handle this myself?

This is not a good idea. Remember, the insurance company is not your friend and will take advantage of what you don’t know. That is why for close to 30 years, bikers have depended on us to help them collect ALL of their damages.

Should I make a claim?

If you have suffered losses and the crash is not your fault, then YES! You cannot recover your losses until you make a claim. The insurance company will not call and offer help until you make a claim.

What if I don’t have medical insurance?

No problem we can help. We have top-notch medical providers willing to treat you and wait to be paid out of your settlement money. Your health is critical so you should never delay finding medical help due to lack of insurance.

What if the police report is wrong? 

No worries. While straightening out a report may be difficult, we have done it hundreds of times. If you need help with this, do not delay in calling us. You want to address this while it is fresh on the officer’s mind, while the camera and video recordings are still available and before a witness may disappear.

Will a lawsuit be necessary?

Hopefully not. Sometimes lawsuits are necessary because there is a fight about who is at fault and/or the value of your claim. While most claims are settled without a lawsuit, if a suit is necessary, it must be filed on or before the 2 year anniversary of your crash.

What is my case worth? 

It depends on the nature of your injuries. For example, a bruised leg is worth less than a broken leg. Until we know all the information about your injuries and what the future holds for you, it is impossible to give a value. Things such as medical bills, lost wages, whether your injuries are permanent, scars etc… have a great impact on the value of your case.

Do I have to pay for a consult?

NEVER. Need an initial consult about what to do, call us and we will help, FREE OF CHARGE, in guiding you through the process.

Will I actually speak with a lawyer?

YES! When you need legal help, shouldn’t you expect to speak with a lawyer? This is why we are different. Most injury law firms have a stable legal of legal assistant taking calls. Not here!! Our lawyers are always available to talk about your case

How do I pay my lawyer?

No recovery – NO FEE!  It’s that simple. Your attorney’s fees are paid out of your settlement funds. No upfront costs and no out-of-pocket expenses.

Knowledge Is Power

Every day, we bring our experience in dealing with insurance companies, deadlines, forms, claims, witnesses, preserving evidence and protecting Texas motorcycle accident victims to the table in every case. Oftentimes, insurance companies don’t take these claims seriously until a lawyer is involved. We make it our business to protect Texas motorcycle accident victims.

We’ve Got Your Back

In cases of serious collisions, dealing with insurance companies can be almost as much of a pain in the neck as the wreck itself. Is the other driver accusing you of fault? Did you request the help of law enforcement while at the scene of the accident? Were multiple motorists involved? Did weather conditions play a factor? All these things can be a headache, especially if the insurance companies use them as a reason to deny your claim or reduce your compensation. Hiring specialized legal representation is critical to your success.
