Austin Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
The public is prejudiced against motorcycles — other drivers often fail to see them or drive in a manner that subjects cyclists to harm. The result of collisions with motorcycles is often fatality, spinal cord injury, or traumatic brain injury, and often requires the services of a motorcycle accident attorney or a burn injury lawyer.
The Catastrophic Impact of Motorcycle Accidents
Even motorcyclists obeying traffic laws and wearing protective gear are at a huge disadvantage in a collision with a motor vehicle. Injuries often include brain damage, paralysis, back injury, and amputation of limbs, as well as fractures, severe burns, or “road rash.” When these major injuries occur, we consult with medical experts to determine the future — even lifelong — medical needs such as reconstructive surgery, vocational rehabilitation, medical equipment and medications.
Securing compensation for Motorcycle Victims
Texas law considers “comparative negligence” on the part of the victim in any personal injury award. The Sharp Firm’s Austin motorcycle accident attorneys will explain to the jury that motorcycle riders have the same rights on the road as automobiles because they ride a motorcycle. We often employ human factors experts, as well as motorcycle experts, to testify about reaction times and actions by the other driver that made the accident unavoidable for the victim.
Victims can recover lost wages and future earnings, medical bills and projected health care costs, as well as damages for pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life. In fatal motorcycle crashes, our Austin motorcycle accident attorneys help surviving family members sue for wrongful death damages — lost earnings, loss of consortium, and emotional pain, and other damages that are presented by the circumstances of your case.
