What to Do After a Motorcycle Accident in Texas

What to Do After a Motorcycle Accident in Texas

Motorcycle injuries can be catastrophic due to the limited protection a rider has compared to a much larger vehicle. In 2022 there were 8,441 motorcycle accidents on Texas roads with 562 fatalities. About 39% of the fatalities were not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.

Most Motorcycle Accidents Happen at Intersections

Roughly 70% of accidents happen at intersections. A common collision involving a motorcycle happens when a car is turning left and does not see the cyclist before crashing into them. This is incredibly dangerous for a biker, and if this happens to you, here’s what to do in the event of a motorcycle accident:

Take Pictures. If you can, take pictures and video of the motorcycle accident scene, including all vehicles, the road or intersection, and your injuries. This can help show what happened in the accident, and it will come in handy later when filling your injury claim. You may be too injured to take pictures. In this case, we will try to get photos from witnesses or nearby businesses.

Go to the Doctor. Get medical attention for your injuries ASAP. Motorcyclists are at a much higher risk for severe injuries due to the lack of protection compared to a car which is larger, has a metal frame, and has air bags.

No one wants to deal with the aftermath of an accident, but if you do find yourself in that situation, these folks make the experience so much easier. I felt comfortable with them from my very first meeting. They even had a welcome message for me in their lobby. They are great people to work with and I am happy with the outcome.

A law firm like such is hard to find, one that cares for their clients with such passion. I worked with them for almost 2 years. He has always been friendly, professional, helpful, and over all amazing. He was patient with my silly questions. He is beyond paralegal. I will certainly recommend this firm to others,
