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.
One of the most common complaints against attorneys is that they fail to stay in contact with their clients. Our office strives to be different in that regard. We respond to e-mails and phone calls within one business day, our lawyers regularly provide clients with their cell phone numbers, and we take steps to ensure that you clearly understand what to expect from the process as matters progress.
