Unfortunately, despite the many upsides of driving a motorcycle, such as it being stylish, fun, and great on gas, when bikers are involved in collisions with other motorists, they’re often severely injured as a result. In fact, a significant portion of motorcycle crashes even result in fatalities. If you were hurt in a motorcycle crash or your loved one lost their life in one, please don’t hesitate to contact a seasoned Houston motorcycle accident lawyer from White Personal Injury so we can fight for the justice you deserve.

Motorcycle Helmet Laws in Texas

Most states require motorcyclists to wear helmets, and for good reason–doing so can save your life. Here in Texas, if you are under the age of 21, you are required, by law, to wear a helmet while riding a motorcycle (even if you are just a passenger). Even if you are over the age of 21, you are required to wear a helmet unless you can prove you’ve either completed an approved motorcycle operator training course or that you have at least $10,000 in medical insurance coverage for injuries that may occur in a motorcycle crash. That said, although yes, in some cases, you don’t legally have to wear a helmet, we strongly recommend that you do–it can make the difference between life or death.

Causes of Motorcycle Crashes

Motorcycle collisions can happen for a variety of reasons, including the following:

  • Inclement weather conditions (e.g. heavy rain or winds)
  • Unsafe road conditions (e.g. potholes, wet leaves on the road, negligent signage)
  • Defective motorcycle parts (e.g. malfunctioning brakes, defective tires, etc.)
  • Driver negligence (driving while intoxicated, tailing bikers too slowly, opening car doors without looking both ways, unsafe lane changes, etc.)

These are just some of the most common causes of motorcycle crashes. If you, as a biker, were hurt due to no fault of your own, there’s a strong chance you’ll qualify for financial compensation.

Compensation

As long as we win your personal injury claim, there are two things you should be compensated for: economic damages and non-economic damages. Economic damages include things like medical bills and lost wages, while non-economic damages include things such as emotional anguish, disfigurement, pain and suffering, and a lower standard of life caused by your injuries. Ensure you file your claim within the state’s statute of limitations, which is, typically, two years. Waiting longer than two years will likely result in you losing your right to sue.
