Motorcycle crash cases are often complex and challenging to present to a jury, sometimes making it tough to settle without going to trial. Therefore, it’s crucial to start building a solid case early on to gather evidence as close to the incident as possible. Weather conditions, incomplete investigations, or failure to document injuries or the accident scene can lead to lost evidence in motorcycle collisions.
These shortcomings can result in an inability to file a claim, litigate effectively, or adequately present all facts to a judge or jury. However, these issues can be mitigated by seeking legal counsel promptly after sustaining injuries in a motorbike accident.

Holding Negligent Drivers Responsible For Their Actions
Regrettably, there’s often a stigma attached to motorcyclists involved in accidents – they are frequently assumed at fault or reckless. Whether the accident occurs on 635 in Dallas, or I35 in Fort Worth, it’s vital for riders to remember that their safety largely depends on other drivers’ actions. Operating larger and less exposed vehicles often puts motorcycle operators at risk. Thus, engaging competent legal counsel immediately after an incident is essential for a thorough investigation into the accident’s facts and circumstances.
In Texas, comparative negligence laws hold sway in determining fault in motorcycle accidents and other motor vehicle collisions. Under this rule, all parties involved in the incident can be held accountable. However, you can only receive compensation for your physical injuries and losses if your contribution to the accident is 50% or less. To effectively recover damages as an accident victim, it’s essential to prove that the other driver was more than 50% responsible for the crash and demonstrated negligence. Establishing their negligence requires showing that the other driver:
1. Owed a duty of care to the motorcycle operator;
2. Breached this duty in some way;
3. Caused injuries to the motorcycle operator due to their breach;
4. Made the motorcycle operator suffer damages or losses because of the accident.
Obtaining a Fair Settlement For You and Your Family
Here are some types of monetary compensation you may be entitled to:
1. Economic damages: These cover financial losses arising from medical bills, repair costs, medication expenses, future medical treatments, lost wages, and time away from work.
2. Non-economic damages: These include more abstract losses like pain and suffering, loss of life enjoyment, and similar hardships that are harder to quantify.
3. Punitive damages: These are intended to punish the at-fault party in cases where extreme recklessness, carelessness, intent, malice, or flagrant disregard for human life is evident.
