Motorcycle accidents are different from other auto accident cases for a number of reasons. To begin, most motorcycle accidents involve extremely severe injuries to the riders. Unlike cars and trucks that have safety features like air bags and steel frames, motorcycles offer very little protection from the force of a collision.
In addition, there is no denying that motorcycle accident trials are different from car or truck accident trials. Unfortunately, even though a motorcyclist is clearly not at fault (the other driver ran a red light, had been drinking, switched lanes without checking, etc.), jurors frequently have a bias against motorcyclists. Many people view motorcyclists as dangerous drivers or pleasure seekers, taking over the road like they own it.

Attorneys Helping You Understand Your Role In and After a Car Accident
Car accidents are a common occurrence in today’s world. Cell phones, CD players, eating while driving and other distractions make it such that accidents are unavoidable. This is why it is very important that everyone know what to do in a car accident.
Our attorneys have more than 20 years of combined experience providing car accident advice to individuals throughout Texas. If you or someone you know has been injured in a car accident. Let us provide you with the answers you need so you know how you should proceed.
What You Should Do at the Scene of a Car Accident
The best piece of advice we can give you if you are involved in a car accident is to seek medical treatment immediately. After you have exchanged basic information with the other driver and the police have been to the scene, accept any offered transportation to the emergency room. Explain any beginnings of pain to the doctor.
Getting medical care quickly and consistently avoids insurance disputes later on in the process, as insurance companies love to deny claims based on gaps in treatment or someone not getting immediate care.
The Steps You Should Take After Being Involved in a Car Accident
First and foremost, you should continue to receive medical care until your doctor tells you to stop. Do not allow any gaps in treatment to occur. You should then seek answers to any questions you may have. Our lawyers are able to look at and analyze your situation to answer the following questions:
- Is my claim worth pursuing?
- Is it necessary to get an attorney?
- What does the process of pursuing a car accident claim look like?
Representing Pedestrians and Cyclists in Texas

Our personal injury attorneys work to obtain maximum compensation for individuals injured in pedestrian accidents. We pay close attention to detail and provide thorough advice on the options available to you. Moreover, we ensure that we handle all legal and insurance aspects so you can focus on your recovery.
Everyone Has a Duty To Share the Road
Whether you are a pedestrian, a cyclist or a driver, you are required to follow certain rules of the road to help protect yourself and others. For instance, drivers have the duty to be vigilant in keeping an eye out for pedestrians, while pedestrians have a duty with regard to where they are walking and where they are crossing the street. It is therefore highly important that all details of the car accident are documented thoroughly as soon as possible after the accident occurs.
Dedicated Attorneys Thoroughly Investigating Pedestrian Accidents
Our lawyers will work diligently to obtain answers to the following questions:
- Did the motorist exercise due care?
- Was the pedestrian in a place that he or she had a legal right to be?
These questions require intensive fact-based research, including speaking to witnesses, reading police reports and pulling in any accident re-constructionists.
We will not only look at the facts, but we will also analyze every possible argument put forth by the opposing party, including the argument of contributory negligence. If you were injured in a hit-and-run accident, we will seek compensation from your own car insurance under an uninsured motorist claim.
