MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT ATTORNEY SERVING HOUSTON AND SUGAR LAND, TEXAS
Whether you were personally injured in a motorcycle accident or are representing a loved one who lost their life in a motorcycle accident, it’s important that you begin the claims process now. Under Texas’s statute of limitations, you only have two years to file your claim against the person or people responsible. Two years may sound like a long time, but trust us — the sooner you file, the better. Your case will be much stronger if you file now, while the details of the incident are fresh in your mind.
We at the Law Office of Frederick K. Wilson II are here to make this difficult time as easy as possible for you. Whether your motorcycle accident led to serious injury or the wrongful death of a family member, we would be more than happy to guide you through the claims process.
Motorcycle Accidents & Serious Injury
Motorcyclists throughout Texas agree that nothing quite compares to the sense of freedom that comes with riding. And, because they value those simple joys — and recognize the added dangers of riding versus driving — most of them choose to ride safely.
Unfortunately, even the most cautious of motorcyclists can be badly injured when someone else on the road makes a mistake. And on those occasions, it’s usually the bikers who end up with serious injuries, such as:
Traumatic brain injuries
Spinal cord injuries
Dismemberment or amputation
Even if your specific set of injuries isn’t listed above, please don’t hesitate to give us a call. We take motorcycle accident cases very seriously and will do everything in our power to help you get fairly compensated by those who caused you to get hurt.
Motorcycle Accidents & Wrongful Death
According to the Texas Department of Transportation, 501 motorcyclists were killed in 2017 — 48% of which were wearing helmets. While we can’t know every detail of every wreck, we can safely assume that many of those deaths were “wrongful.” In other words, many of those deaths were caused by mistakes made by other drivers and not the motorcyclists who lost their lives as a result.
If the accident impacting your life caused you to lose your spouse, child, or another family member, let us help you. We will fight relentlessly to hold the responsible party accountable and strive to make them think twice before ever causing that same kind of harm to another family.
How to Get Paid for a Motorcycle Accident in Texas
After a motorcycle accident, most people turn to their insurance company expecting an empathetic ear, a speedy settlement, and fair coverage. However, they almost never receive that kind of treatment. Instead, they find that the insurance company will use any excuse they can to minimize the value of their claim. They (and the other driver involved in the accident) might claim that you:
Weren’t properly insured at the time of the accident
Weren’t wearing a helmet
Weren’t dressed appropriately (for instance, wearing proper leathers)
Were lane splitting (weaving through slow traffic)
Were riding recklessly
Weren’t paying attention to the road
Whether or not these allegations are true, the insurance company will cling to any argument they can to pay you as little as possible for your injuries. This is just one of many reasons you want to get an experienced personal injury attorney on your side sooner rather than later. Only an experienced attorney will know how to effectively counter these arguments and push to negotiate a better settlement offer.
