Though fewer people drive motorcycles than other more “standard” modes of transportation, such as cars or SUVs, motorcycle accidents are still proportionately the most fatal. Unfortunately, when someone is involved in an accident while riding a motorcycle, they don’t have much protection from the thing they’re colliding with, which, as you can imagine, often leads to very serious injuries. That said, if you or a loved one was injured in a motorcycle accident, you’re most likely wondering whether you’re entitled to financial compensation, as this compensation can help cover the cost of medical bills, lost wages from being unable to return to work, and more. Please continue reading and reach out to a skilled San Antonio, Texas motorcycle accident lawyer from the Sahadi Legal Group to learn more about how we can help if you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What can I do if I was injured in a motorcycle accident?

Because motorcycle accidents are often so devastating, it may be challenging for injured motorcyclists to do anything other than await the arrival of emergency services at the scene of the accident. That said, it is beneficial, if possible, to document the facts surrounding the incident. This can include taking the following actions:

  1. Taking pictures of the scene.
  2. Calling the police and ensuring they write up an accident report
  3. Asking witnesses for their names and phone numbers
  4. Getting the other driver’s insurance information
  5. Keeping copies of all documentation surrounding your injuries

Am I entitled to compensation?

Whether you’re entitled to compensation will depend on the circumstances of your motorcycle accident. In Texas, to win a personal injury claim of any kind, the plaintiff must first satisfy the burden of proof. Put simply, this means you will have to prove that you were injured as a direct result of another motorist’s negligence, i.e. they caused your accident. If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident, you shouldn’t hesitate to reach out to a dedicated personal injury attorney from our legal team. The sooner you speak with us, the sooner we can get started working towards the compensation you need to heal.
