Motorcyclists Are at a High Risk of Injury & Death

Motorcyclists are not protected like drivers and occupants of other motor vehicles. In 2021, the Texas Department of Transportation reported that 502 drivers and 20 passengers were killed in motorcycle accidents, and 2,320 more were seriously injured, and about half of all those people were wearing helmets. Even when wearing DOT-approved helmets and protective gear like boots, jackets, gloves, and pants, the risk of injury is extremely high. In fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that motorcyclists are about 28 times more likely to be killed in traffic accidents than occupants of passenger cars. 

In a crash, a rider may experience such traumatic injuries as:

These injuries may be sustained even in minor or low-speed collisions. Some modern bikes are equipped with airbags and other features meant to protect riders in an accident, but there is only so much that can be done.

After a Motorcycle Crash: Protect Your Health & Legal Rights

If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, you can take a few steps to protect yourself:

  • If the accident is blocking traffic or someone is seriously injured, call 911.
  • If possible, stay at the scene. You are required by law to remain at the scene of any traffic accident that has caused property damage or injury to exchange information with the other driver(s). The only exception would be if you are severely injured and are taken to receive emergency care.
  • Exchange information with the other driver, including your driver's license number, insurance information, name, and phone number.
  • Gather information, if you can. This might include taking pictures of the scene and your bike with your cell phone, getting the contact information of witnesses, and more.
  • Seek medical care as soon as you can. If you do not require emergency care, go to your local urgent care center, or see your doctor as soon as possible. You should always get checked out after a motorcycle accident, even if you feel you were not seriously injured. Some injuries may not be apparent right away because of adrenaline and shock. See a doctor as soon as you can.
  • Do not admit fault or apologize to the other driver, to law enforcement, or even to your own insurance company. Statements like these can be seen as admissions that you caused the accident and could complicate your ability to recover a fair settlement.
  • Talk to a Dallas motorcycle accident lawyer before you accept a settlement or sign anything that could reduce your chances of getting the complete compensation you need to rebuild your bike and your life. A lawyer who has experience with these cases can guide you to the best possible result.

Of course, every motorcycle accident is different, and you should do what you believe is best in the circumstances. Put safety first, ask your doctor if you have any medical questions, and ask your attorney for legal guidance.

Texas Helmet Laws for Motorcyclists

Texas law only mandates wearing helmets on a motorcycle if you're under the age of 21. As long as you're older than that, and if you have completed an approved training course or have met some other qualification, like carrying enough health insurance coverage, then you are not required to wear a helmet.

Recovering After a Dallas Motorcycle Accident

Trying to rebuild after a motorcycle crash can seem impossible. With a successful case against the party or parties that caused your accident, however, you have an opportunity to recover compensation that can pay for all of your treatment and offer financial support so your future is secure.

Compensation for a motorcycle accident claim may cover:

  • Hospitalization and emergency care, doctor visits, and other medical appointments
  • Rehabilitation, physical therapy, medical equipment, medication, and medical supplies
  • Lost wages from missed work while you were injured and receiving treatment
  • Loss of potential income if you can't work in the same field or can't work at all
  • Property damage to your bike, your helmet, and your other gear
  • Physical pain and suffering experienced during and after the accident
  • Emotional trauma, such as loss of enjoyment of life, anxiety, or PTSD
  • Diminished quality of life as a result of the accident and the injuries you experienced
  • In rare cases, punitive damages to punish the at-fault party for gross negligence or wrongdoing

Because of the severity of motorcycle accident injuries, survivors or the families of victims often need help from a law firm to recover compensation for medical bills, lost earnings, and the other expenses and losses they've suffered.
  • What Can I Recover After a Dallas Motorcycle Crash?

    While motorcycles might carry more risks for riders, this fact doesn't excuse careless accidents. Motorcyclists have every right to safety that other drivers on the road enjoy. When someone's careless actions harm a motorcyclist, they should be held liable for injuries they've could've damaged. Our Dallas motorcycle accident lawyers fight to help recover money for medical debt, lost wages, the cost of future care, pain and suffering, and more.
