Motorcycle Accident

Motorcycle Accident Lawyer in Lubbock TX

Motorcycle riders are more exposed and vulnerable than the occupants of most other vehicles on the road; as a result, motorcycle accidents often result in serious injuries or death. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Association, while fewer than 5% of the registered vehicles in the U.S. are motorcycles, motorcyclists accounted for more than 10% of traffic fatalities. In Texas thousands of people are injured in motorcycle accidents every year.
Moreover, while people often stereotype riders as daredevils, motorcycle accidents are often caused by the negligence of car drivers who speed, fail to yield, or are not paying enough attention to the road and dont notice a motorcycle in time to avoid a crash.
When a traffic accident caused by someones negligence leads to injuries, the injured person may sue in order to receive compensation (or damages) for pain and suffering, medical bills that result from the accident, wages lost as a result of the injury (or, in more severance cases, loss of earning power), and more.
In Texas, if the person who was injured was partly negligent as well, he or she can still recover financial compensation for at least part of the harm suffered. In order to do so, however, the injured person must be able to prove the other partys negligence?in other words, that the other person involved in the accident did not act as a reasonable person would have under the circumstances. The injured person must also be able to prove the extent of his or her injury.
