Dallas Motorcycle Accident Attorneys

Seeking Justice for Injured Motorists in North Texas

Although motorcycles can offer operators and enthusiasts a sense of excitement and freedom, motorcyclists face significant risks on Texas roads. Compared to other motorists, such as car and truck operators whose vehicles provide a buffer between the driver and the pavement, motorcyclists are more likely to suffer severe injuries in a crash.

In the event that a motorcyclist is injured due to negligence, seeking sound counsel from a Dallas motorcycle accident attorney is imperative to pursue justice. At MAS Law, we have over 20 years of experience pursuing fair compensation for injured motorcyclists, making us well-equipped to represent your best interests. Our dedicated lawyers treat every case with the care and attention it deserves, freeing injured parties to focus on their recovery.

What Causes Motorcycle Accidents?

Motorcycle accidents can occur for a variety of reasons, many of which involve the negligence of other drivers. Common causes include:

  • Distracted driving: When drivers are not fully attentive to the road, they may fail to see motorcyclists, leading to severe accidents. Examples of distractions include texting, eating, or talking on the phone while driving.
  • Impaired driving: Drivers impaired by alcohol or drugs lack the focus, reaction time, and judgment required to safely operate a vehicle, often failing to notice or correctly respond to motorcyclists.
  • Speeding: Excessive speed reduces a driver's ability to steer safely around curves or objects in the roadway, extending the distance necessary to stop a vehicle when the driver reacts to a dangerous situation.
  • Failure to yield: Many motorcycle accidents occur when other motorists fail to yield the right-of-way to motorcyclists at intersections or while changing lanes.
  • Poor road conditions: Poorly maintained roads, construction zones, or inclement weather conditions can cause motorcyclists to lose control, especially if other drivers fail to adapt responsibly to hazardous conditions.

Our Dallas lawyers have extensive experience holding parties accountable for negligence in motorcycle accidents. If you were harmed in a motorcycle crash, we can work closely with you to identify all responsible parties and pursue fair compensation.

Common Injuries in Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents can result in severe injuries and even fatalities in North Texas, making it all the more crucial for motorcyclists to stay alert and seek sound counsel if they sustain a wrongful injury.

Riders can sustain a wide range of injuries in motorcycle crashes, such as:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Internal organ damage
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Limb amputation
  • Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
  • Road rash and severe skin abrasions
  • Psychological trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

Who Is Liable in a Motorcycle Accident?

Depending on the circumstances, various parties may be liable in a motorcycle accident. Common liable parties include:

  • Fellow motorists: If the accident resulted from another driver's negligence, such as speeding, being distracted, or not yielding the right of way, they may be liable for the resulting injuries.
  • Motorcycle manufacturers: If a defect in the motorcycle contributed to the accident, the manufacturer may be liable under product liability laws.
  • Bars and restaurants: Under Texas dram shop laws, a bar or restaurant that over-served alcohol to the motorist whose negligence caused the accident can also be liable for damages.

At MAS Law, we understand the frustration and fear that motorcyclists experience after an unexpected injury. From property damage to medical bills, our firm is committed to holding negligent parties accountable for all available damages, from pain and suffering to financial losses.

Recoverable Damages in a Dallas Motorcycle Accident

In personal injury lawsuits, “damages” refer to monetary compensation that wrongfully injured victims can recover from at-fault parties. Various types of damages can be recovered in a motorcycle accident lawsuit, including:

  • Economic Damages: These cover tangible, out-of-pocket expenses, including financial losses like medical bills, lost wages, and property damage.
  • Non-Economic Damages: These compensate for intangible or non-financial losses, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of consortium, and scarring and disfigurement.
  • Punitive Damages: These may be awarded in rare cases involving extreme negligence or malice. While other types of damages are intended to compensate the victim for financial and non-financial losses, punitive damages are meant to punish the defendant for their extreme behavior.

If you were harmed in a motorcycle crash, our firm can help you take back your life and safeguard your economic security. Don’t wait to secure the experienced representation you deserve after a wrongful injury. Our seasoned attorneys can work tirelessly to recover total damages on your behalf so you can focus on your recovery.
