If you’ve sustained injuries in a motorcycle accident, a lawyer from Hilliard Law can help.  Using our skills and resources, we have been aiding accident victims for more than three decades.

As the business and cultural center of North Texas, Dallas is an excellent area to ride a motorcycle through the city’s streets because of its good weather and picturesque surroundings. Dallas residents find riding motorcycles a convenient and enjoyable alternative to traveling by car. Unfortunately, however, Dallas experiences a good portion of motorcycle accidents.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that motorcycle riders are disproportionately represented in fatal traffic collisions. On our congested roads, drivers of other cars frequently fail to look out for motorcyclists. Motorcycle accidents often cause severe and expensive injuries. If you’ve been in a motorcycle accident, you shouldn’t be forced to foot the bill for another driver’s negligence. A knowledgeable motorcycle accident attorney in Dallas can assist you in understanding your legal options for recovering damages and holding the responsible party accountable.

Can Texas Fault-Based Insurance Laws Apply to Motorcycle Accidents?

Since Texas is an “at fault” state, the insurance company of the person who caused the accident is responsible for covering any damages. Texas legislation holds reckless motorists liable for incidents they cause, so you can pursue compensation from the at-fault motorist’s insurance provider for your motorcycle accident.

If the at-fault motorist’s negligence causes you to suffer injuries you can also file a personal injury lawsuit, to help cover all your injury-related losses.

What Types of Compensation Can I Recover in a Dallas Motorcycle Accident Claim?

Injuries sustained in collisions involving motorcycles are frequently severe and expensive to manage. You have the right to seek compensation if the other vehicle’s driver is at fault for your accident. Depending on your case circumstances, you may be eligible to receive compensation for both economic and non-economic damages, regardless of whether you’re pursuing insurance benefits or suing a third party for personal injury.

Economic Damages. Through your motorcycle accident claim, you may be awarded economic damages to cover losses like the following:

  • Surgery
  • Disability
  • Hospital stays
  • Physical therapy
  • Prescription and OTC medication
  • Replacing or repairing the damaged motorcycle
  • Income lost from missing work
  • Reduced earning capacity due to sustaining a permanent disability

Your damages award may cover your current and future financial losses in totality as long as you can prove them.

Non-Economic Damages. You may be granted non-economic damages through your motorcycle accident personal injury claim to compensate for the losses that don’t have an explicit monetary value. These damages often cover losses like the following:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Mental anguish
  • Disfigurement
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Loss of consortium
  • Reduced quality of life

Since there is no exact cost for losses like these, plaintiffs must demonstrate their value. At Hilliard Law, we make a concerted effort to ensure that our clients are not exploited and that their claims are fairly valued. After a serious collision, our committed Dallas, Texas motorcycle accident lawyers will fight for every dollar of compensation you are due.

Motorcycle Accident Statute of Limitations in Dallas

Many motorcycle accident cases result from negligence, making them eligible for a personal injury claim against the party that caused the accident. The statute of limitations in Texas for personal injury cases is two years under Section 16.003 of the Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code, which governs the bulk of personal injury cases. Usually, the clock starts ticking from the date the accident occurs.
