Corpus Christi Motorcycle Accidents
If a negligent driver has injured you, as the result of the negligence of another driver while riding your bike you are entitled to recover compensation under Texas law.
Though motorcycles represent only 2 percent of all vehicles in the U.S., they are involved in 5 percent of all accidents. Statistically, most motorcycle accidents are NOT the fault of the motorcyclist but of the driver of the other vehicle.
When you’ve been involved in a motorcycle accident, every move you make after the accident can have a positive or negative effect on the outcome of your case: hiring our motorcycle accident lawyer Corpus Christi firm is one of the smartest moves you can make towards the largest settlement possible for your case.
There are definitely certain things you can do to help your lawyer make a better case. Before you even call your lawyer, you should do these things to make your case easier.
First, use whatever camera or smart device you have and take pictures of the entire accident scene including both vehicle and all damage to both. If your helmet was damaged in the accident, take detailed pictures of it for evidence.
Next, get the names and addresses of all witnesses who might have seen anything important. Then see if there appear to be any security or other permanent cameras for businesses near the accident scene to see if they might have gotten video of the accident.
Make sure to get a report number or item number from the investigating officer. Also, with great politeness, get the name and badge number of the investigating officer in case you or your lawyer have any questions about the police report.
Also, begin keeping a written diary starting after the accident to detail any changes in your lifestyle or activities caused by the accident. This will make it easier for you to remember the key details.
Determining liability for motorcycle accidents often involves complex legal issues and factual analyses, including issues of comparative negligence. Moreover, multiple parties may be liable for a motorcycle accident depending on the circumstances surrounding the traffic collision.
This is where an experienced Corpus Christi motorcycle injury attorney can be of the most help. When there are complex issues of law regarding who exactly should pay for your damages, our experienced attorneys are ready, waiting and willing to help you figure this out. We can then sue the right parties and get you the damages you are legally entitled to.
Victims of motorcycle accidents can usually expect to collect damages for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and any lost earnings incurred when an injury is determined to be the fault of another person. If the injury is determined to be one that will affect the victim well into the future, then damages for future lost earnings and future medical expenses may also be awarded. Exactly how much they can expect to be awarded in damages will depend on the specific facts of a case.
