Motorcycle accidents can be devastating as a rider is relatively unprotected against an oncoming car. The harm from such accidents can be life-changing regardless of whether the rider was wearing his or her helmet. Injuries sustained in such an accident can lead to reduced earnings, medical expenses, the need for future medical care, and a reduced ability to enjoy life. Dan Christensen is an Austin motorcycle accident lawyer assisting the victims of negligence. Our firm has extensive experience in such matters and is ready to assist you. Contact us today to speak with an attorney. We assist victims in Travis County and elsewhere in Texas.
Aggressive injury lawyer assisting Austin motorcycle accident victims
Motorcycle accident victims are highly susceptible to injury. The reason for this is obvious – a rider is no match for an oncoming car. These types of accidents can result in spinal damage, head injuries, paralysis, and even wrongful death. Victims are entitled to compensation when such harm occurs due to the negligence of another. Compensation should include medical expenses incurred, the cost of future care, lost earnings, any reduction in lost earning potential, pain and suffering, as well as property damage. It is important that the Plaintiff consider each of these aspects.
Negligence lawsuits stemming from motorcycle accidents will be filed in either a Texas state or federal court. After the defendants respond, then a process called “discovery”, which is how one party gains information from another, will begin. Discovery can be used to gain additional information, such as whether the defendant was engaging in distracted driving. After discovery has been concluded then, if the case does not settle, the matter will proceed to trial. At the close of evidence, a judge or jury will decide whether the defendant is liable and the amount to compensate the Plaintiff. It is crucial that you have an experienced trial attorney to assist you throughout this process.
