If you’ve been involved in a motorcycle accident, you may need the help of an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer to help get you the compensation you deserve. Since this type of vehicle lacks the protection of an outer metal shell and the four-wheel stability of a car, you may come out of an accident with serious injuries that will change your life. The attorneys at Nguyen & Chen are prepared to help you.
A Motorcycle Accident Lawyer That Will Fight For You
As a motorcyclist, you are expected to observe all traffic laws. Your bike should be safe with proper braking system and lights. You should be dressed for the road so that you are protected against head injuries and flying debris that could get in your eyes or skin to skin. According to Texas law, you may be able to ride without a helmet, if you have passed a training course, but statistics show that helmets lessen the impact of head injuries.
Types Of Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle accidents might involve:
- Head-on collisions between you and a car
- Blind spot collisions when the other driver cannot see you
- Alcohol impairment
- Lane splitting when drive between two lanes of cars
- Road hazards
Texas observes the rule of Modified Comparative Negligence, which gives you the right to claim damages in an accident so long as you bear less than 51% of the blame for the accident. Having a lawyer is particularly important to fight for your proper share of compensation and damages.
Nguyen & Chen Will Fight For You
Our firm has expertise in handling the serious consequences of motorcycle accidents, which might include:
- Fractures to your ribs, arms, and legs
- Severe abrasions
- Spinal cord injuries
- Concussion and closed head injury
- Internal injuries
- Wrongful death
Any of these outcomes can result in high medical bills, inability to work, lost wages, and long-term care costs that can quickly exhaust any resources you might have prior to the accident. We can help you recover your costs and even assist you in filing for disability if you cannot work.
After a motorcycle accident, we will take the case on contingency, which means that we will advance all the costs for your settlement negotiations or litigation and only receive payment when you do. When you need an experienced motorcycle accident attorney in Houston, call Nguyen & Chen.
