We Work on a Contingency Fee Basis
For personal injury claims, such as a motorcycle accident, our attorneys work on a contingency fee basis. This means we don't bill you hourly and instead take a fixed percentage of the money won in your settlement if we win your case. If we lose, you don't owe our lawyers anything at all.
Can I Receive Compensation? Find Out – Request a Free Consultation
Texas is a "modified comparative negligence" state, meaning you can still recover damages for your accident even if you're found partially at fault. You can recover damages as long as you're less than 50% to blame for the accident.
If you aren't sure that you're entirely blameless in the accident, it's a good idea to contact our law firm to discuss your case with our lawyers during a free consultation. Since we work on a contingency fee basis, you owe our lawyers nothing in payment unless we take on and win your case.

Damages You Can Recover Following Your Injury
When a motorcycle is involved in a car accident or truck accident, extensive damage can be caused to the motorcycle rider's property. Our personal injury lawyers will fight for fair compensation to repair or replace your motorcycle and any items that may have been damaged in the motorcycle accident, such as a cell phone.
Pain and Suffering
Texas has no limit on the amount of compensation you can redeem from non-financial damages, like pain and suffering. Often the multiplier method is used in court, where your compensation is typically multiplied between 1.5 to 5 times the original amount. This number depends on the extent of your physical injuries and pain and suffering.
We don't expect you to be able to work while also recovering from injuries you've sustained in your motorcycle accident. That's why our injury lawyers will fight to secure fair compensation for lost wages you've suffered while recovering and for any gap in earnings if you can no longer work at the same level as before the accident.
Don't delay receiving medical treatment because of cost. Our lawyers will work to get you compensated for the medical bills you've accumulated from your injury. Hospital stays, surgeries, medications, and other medical bills can all be compensated in a motorcycle accident case.

How Long Do I Have to File a Law Suit?
Personal injury cases must be filed within two years of the date of injury. If your loved one died in a motorcycle accident, you have two years from the date of death to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
Our motorcycle accident lawyers urge victims and their families to seek legal advice as soon as possible so we can preserve evidence in your case and file a motorcycle accident claim within the statutes of limitations set by the state of Texas.
How You Can Help Your Case
Don't Admit Fault
You may be tempted to apologize for a motorcycle accident, but it's important you don't – it could be considered as admitting fault. These words can be used against you in court, so refrain from apologizing even if you were partially to blame.
Photographs, videos, and other evidence from the accident can be greatly beneficial to building your case. Back up this material onto a different device or email it to yourself to ensure nothing is lost. You can also bring copies to our Longview law firm.
Insurance companies may reach out to you directly following the accident rather than going through our motorcycle accident lawyers. If this happens, direct the representative to our injury lawyers.
Seek Medical Attention
Seek medical attention immediately, even if you don't notice any injuries. Creating medical records can be vital for our motorcycle accident lawyers to fight effectively for all the damages you're entitled to.
Dealing with Insurance Companies Getting the Best Possible Award
Insurance companies are notorious for stalling payouts and minimizing compensation in motorcycle accident cases. This is especially frustrating when victims are dealing with high medical bills and lost wages while recovering from an injury.
To protect your right to fair compensation, our injury lawyers can handle all negotiations with the insurance company while you focus on healing. Our attorneys can fight for the compensation you deserve to cover all related medical expenses and future projected costs.
