Why Should I Hire an Austin Motorcycle Accident Attorney?

After hiring a personal injury lawyer to represent you during a motorcycle accident claim, you can relax and focus on your physical and emotional healing. Your lawyer will handle the legwork of your case on your behalf, from investigating causation and gathering evidence to filing a claim before the deadline. An attorney will prevent a driver’s insurance carrier from taking advantage of you. Although many insurers have biases against motorcyclists, a lawyer can increase your chances of securing fair and full compensation. While you recuperate, your lawyer can handle all the legal aspects of your claim.

Three Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Under Texas’ fault-based insurance rules, you must file a claim with the at-fault party’s insurance company after a motorcycle accident. This takes identifying who or what caused your collision. At the Villarreal & Begum Law Firm, we have the tools to investigate your Texas motorcycle accident case for signs of causation.

  1. Distracted or inattentive drivers. Drivers can cause motorcycle collisions through distracted, drowsy, drunk or negligent driving. Following too closely, speeding and failing to yield the right-of-way are common crash-related driver mistakes.
  2. Poorly designed or maintained roads. Even a minor road defect could cause a motorcycle crash. It is up to the City of Austin to properly design, maintain, and repair its roads for the optimal safety of its motorists.
  3. Motorcycle product defects. A defective piece of equipment on your motorcycle could cause a serious accident. This might be the case, for example, if you were injured in a single-vehicle motorcycle accident. The manufacturer or distributor could be liable in this case.

Whether you know what caused your accident or need a lawyer to investigate, our motorcycle accident attorneys can help you bring a claim in Austin. We can take over legal processes such as settlement negotiations with a claims adjuster on your behalf. We will make sure you do not settle for less than your injuries and damages demand, even if that means proceeding to trial.
