Kemah Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

According to a Texas DOT crash fact report, 501 motorcycle operators and passengers were killed in 2017. While this number is alarmingly high, motorcycle accidents are likely to increase in Kemah owing to the continuous rise in the number of motorcycles on public roads.

Regardless of the cause of a motorcycle accident, motorcycle deaths and injuries can be avoided if road users drive and ride more responsibly. Most motorcycle accidents result from acts of negligence such as:

  • Speeding
  • Drunk driving
  • Drivers swerving in front of motorcyclists
  • Motorists cutting off motorcyclists at intersections
  • Failure of drivers to yield
  • Irresponsible lane changes
  • Distracted driving
  • Failure of drivers to pay attention to other road users

Other than vehicle and motorcycle damages, motorcycle accidents are a leading cause of life-changing injuries and permanent personal injury.

As you are in a position to prove the negligence of a driver who led to your road accident, you can seek settlement for personal injuries and property damages that result from a motorcycle accident. Below are a few common types of motorcycle injuries that Texas state insurance laws allow you to seek compensation for:

  • Burns
  • Paralysis
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Internal organ injuries
  • Ruptured discs
  • Road rash
  • Head injuries
  • Nerve damage
  • Concussions
  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
  • Loss of limbs/amputations

Winning Settlement for a Motorcycle Accident

It is possible to demand compensation from the negligent party after a motorcycle accident. There are two options for this: you can resolve the claim out-of-court by negotiating with the responsible insurers, or you can seek a settlement in a civil court.

In most situations, resolving a claim outside court is fast and easy but negotiating on your own will likely lead to a significantly lower compensation amount from insurers who will try to minimize their liability for the accident. You may even find that the blame for the accident has been shifted on you. Do not accept any insurance offers without legal counsel. Similarly, avoid signing any proposals by insurers and don’t make any recorded statements without your lawyer by your side.

The lawyer we assign to your case will be tasked with aggressively negotiating with the responsible insurance companies. If the insurers responsible for covering your injuries and damages fail to give you the compensation amount you deserve, we’ll not hesitate to seek justice for you in a court of law.

Filing a Wrongful Death Claim After a Motorcycle Accident

Due to a lack of protection, many motorcycle accidents lead to fatalities. Even though no settlement can replace the lost life of a loved one, fair compensation will help you get back on your feet and get you back on the road to recovery – both physical as well as financial – after the accident. Texas survival statutes allow you to seek compensation for the following in the event of a motorcycle accident that leads to the death of a loved one.

  • Emotional anguish
  • Loss of company
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Medical bills incurred by the loved one before death
  • Loss of service
  • Loss of financial support formerly provided by a family breadwinner
  • Loss of company
  • Lost inheritance

Please keep in mind that only the children to the deceased, a surviving spouse, or the deceased parents can file a wrongful death claim.

Punitive Damages for Motorcycle Accidents

Should you feel that the severe repercussions of the motorcycle accident you were involved in were directly caused by a willful, malicious act or gross negligence of a third party, you can file punitive damages against the responsible motorist. These damages will be aimed at punishing the negligent party for their inexcusable negligence and to discourage other motorists from engaging in similar behavior in the future. A punitive claim can also win you extra compensation from the motorist’s assets if your or their basic insurance policies do not fully cover your costs and losses.
