Dallas Motorcycle Accident Attorney
Fort Worth Brain Injury Lawyer
While many car drivers complain that they couldn't see the motorcycle, and that it was the motorcyclist's fault that they were involved in an accident, the truth is that most car-motorcycle accidents happen when oncoming cars make a sudden turn in front of a motorcycle. Also common are incidents where motorcyclists get bumped or run off the road when a car or truck driver hits a motorcycle while changing lanes.
The chance of serious, life-threatening injury is much higher for motorcycle riders. In addition to broken ankles and legs, motorcyclists who are thrown to the road suffer burn injuries called "road rash" back and spinal cord injuries, and many suffer serious head injuries.

Bringing a successful motorcycle accident case to trial can be challenging. In Collin County, juries are quick to suspect that the motorcycle rider is the guilty party. In Dallas, juries tend to give the biker the benefit of doubt.
It’s the job of your personal injury attorney to shift the focus of the jury — or the insurance company — from blame to accountability. Every motorist on the road is responsible for paying attention to every other vehicle (and pedestrian and bicycle) on the road with them. If a car or truck driver failed to pay attention, he or she should be held accountable for that negligence.
How do we prove fault? We work with experienced investigators and accident reconstructionists to gather evidence, interview witnesses and determine what actually happened. Motorcycles leave identifiable marks on the road. The physics of motorcycle accidents are unique but understandable, even to a jury, if presented properly.
Motorcycle Accidents and Helmets
In Texas, a jury can consider a motorcycle rider responsible for his or her own injuries if head injuries result from the lack of wearing a motorcycle helmet. That does not mean that you can't receive some financial compensation for your injuries. You may still be able to make a partial recovery. It will largely depend upon your personal injury lawyer's ability to prove the other driver was more at fault.
If you have a case, we are ready to provide the aggressive, effective representation that will help you get justice and compensation.
