MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT INJURIES AND COMPENSATION OPTIONS

Motorcycle on side after accident. Our Grand Prairie motorcycle accident attorneys are well-versed in the types of serious, life-altering injuries that frequently occur in these collisions, including:

  • Injuries to the spinal cord
  • Various types of traumatic brain injuries
  • Severe bruising and lacerations
  • Road Rashes
  • Amputation of a limb
  • Internal organs are damaged.
  • Internal hemorrhage
  • Fractured or broken bones
  • Neck injuries and back injuries

If you sustain these or other injuries in a motorcycle accident, you will require prompt medical attention following the accident as well as continued medical care in the weeks and months that follow in order to manage your symptoms and have a chance of recovery.

The expense of immediate and ongoing medical care after a motorbike accident is frequently far higher than people think, ranging from thousands to tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Fortunately, your Grand Prairie motorcycle accident lawyer may be able to submit an insurance claim or a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf to receive compensation for all your medical bills, including:

  • Surgical procedures
  • Ambulance services
  • Prescription medications
  • X-rays, CT scans, MRIs and other diagnostic studies
  • Rehabilitation and physical therapy
  • Mobility aids such as canes and crutches
  • Consultations with doctors

Other types of compensation that our experienced attorneys may be able to obtain in an insurance claim or personal injury case include:

PROPERTY LOSS

If your motorcycle was damaged in the accident, a Grand Prairie motorcycle accident lawyer can help you get compensation to repair or replace it.

This is something that can be obtained through an insurance claim or a personal injury lawsuit. However, we can only receive property damage compensation up to the limits of the other driver’s policy if we make an insurance claim.

Our experts can assist you in gathering adequate documentation of the cost of your vehicle’s damage or the bike’s fair replacement value.

WAGES THAT HAVE BEEN LOST

Personal injuries, especially those sustained in motorcycle accidents, make it difficult or impossible to return to work immediately. You may be unable to work for hours, days, or weeks without being compensated.

If this occurs, our lawyers can seek compensation for all of your lost wages as a result of your injury. This could include wages lost due to time spent at the doctor receiving treatment.

Our Grand Prairie motorcycle accident attorneys can assist you with obtaining paperwork for missed pay, such as a doctor’s certificate declaring that your injuries prevent you from working. You will also require evidence from your employer detailing the times you were absent from work as well as your pay rate.

PAIN AND SUFFERING

An injury caused by a motorbike accident can result in a tremendous deal of physical and emotional misery. Depression, worry, insomnia, terror, or repeating the disaster in your thoughts are all examples of emotional distress.

Through a personal injury claim, your motorcycle accident lawyer in Grand Prairie can seek compensation for any physical and mental troubles you are facing.

We can also assist you in obtaining paperwork for these damages, which do not have a monetary value, such as medical expenditures or property damage.

For example, we can assist you in obtaining medical documents that detail the physical and emotional issues you’re dealing with, as well as their severity. We may also suggest keeping a notebook in which you record the physical discomfort and mental challenges you face on a daily basis. You should always try to gather as much proof of your pain and suffering as possible, as this may help you receive this type of compensation.

EARNING CAPACITY HAS BEEN LOST

Severe injuries might change a person’s life because they prevent them from returning to work or impair their ability to do some components of their profession. Because of their physical limitations, some victims have to change careers entirely. This can have a negative impact on your ability to make money now and in the future.

If your injury impacts your ability to earn a living in any manner, you may be eligible for lost earning capacity compensation. Based on your experience, skills, and education, this is determined based on what you would have earned if the injury had never happened.

Contact our Grand Prairie motorcycle accident attorneys now to discuss your case and discover if you are eligible for any type of compensation. We understand how important compensation is as you work to recover from your injuries and go on with your life.

WHAT CAUSES MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS

The following are some examples of common forms of driver negligence that are frequently the cause of motorcycle accidents:

  • Speeding drivers.
  • Following too closely
  • When changing lanes, not checking for blind areas
  • When passing through an intersection, failing to yield
  • Driving while distracted
  • Driving while drowsy
  • Disobeying traffic signs or signals
  • Driving while inebriated or under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Failing to use turn signals

Whatever type of motorcycle accident you were in, our skilled lawyers know how to perform a thorough investigation to determine if the other driver was at fault. One of the key benefits of dealing with an attorney is that doing a thorough investigation on your own is difficult.

Our Grand Prairie motorcycle accident lawyers are prepared to conduct the following investigations into your accident:

  • Take pictures of the scene and photos to indicate the extent of your motorcycle’s damage.
  • Take pictures of your injuries to prove how serious they are.
  • Obtain a copy of the accident report from the police.
  • Consult medical professionals to understand more about your injuries and how they were caused by the collision.
  • Recreate the accident to see how negligence played a role in your injuries.

If you are able, we also recommend that you take photos shortly after the crash. Take pictures of your injuries, your motorcycle, and anything else that visually depict the accident and injuries. When you contact us, we get as many images as possible, but images taken just after the accident may do a better job of documenting the incident.

To see if we can assist you in pursuing compensation for your injuries, contact a Grand Prairie motorcycle accident lawyer now. We want you to be compensated if another driver was at fault.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I AM PARTLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ACCIDENT?

Some people mistakenly believe that if they were partially to blame for their motorcycle accident, they will not be able to obtain compensation. However, Texas has a comparative negligence rule that provides that even if you were somewhat at fault in the accident, you can still receive compensation. For example, you may have been speeding at the time of the collision.

Your compensation award will be lowered by your degree of blame for the accident under this law. If you were 20 percent at fault, for example, your compensation would be reduced by 20 percent. If you are more than 50 percent at fault, you are barred from recovery.

This law differs from similar statutes in other states in that it does not bar you from pursuing compensation if your percentage of fault exceeds a specified threshold. It is crucial to have a reliable lawyer on your side who can fight to ensure you don’t get a bigger amount of blame than you deserve.

Our Grand Prairie motorcycle accident lawyer will perform a comprehensive investigation and actively negotiate with the other party’s insurers or attorneys. We are dedicated to obtaining all of the compensation you are entitled to and ensuring that you are treated fairly throughout the legal process.

Doug is a great attorney. He took care of my auto accident claim promptly, and answered any questions I had. I also had one of my hospital bills go into collections for non-payment. I was able to contact Doug a year after the accident, and received a copy of the check the hospital claimed they didn’t receive. I highly recommend this guy. David J.

Mr. Goyen helped me take on my own insurance company, the great and mighty Allstate. My prior firm basically dumped me, with a permanent injury because the case didn’t meet their financial guidelines for a settlement. I was a bicycle rider hit by a car driver at an intersection, and Allstate was the company on BOTH SIDES OF THE CLAIM. My own insurance company tried to throw me under the bus to limit their payout! Without Mr. Goyen’s help, I would have been left with NOTHING! I had thousands of dollars in unpaid medical bills, unable to receive treatment to correct the issue. He was unafraid and helped me get the best settlement I could … I am tremendously thankful! Pamala M.
