San Antonio Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Experienced Litigation for Motorcycle Accident Injuries
In most multi-vehicle accidents involving a motorcycle, the biker is not
at fault. However, there is a great deal of bias against motorcycles,
which can severely impact your case. It is critical for the biker or a
family member of the biker to
retain experienced legal counsel immediately following an accident. Motorcyclists are often treated unfairly
by insurance companies resulting in denied claims. Denied claims only
compound the problems that have arisen from the accident. Seek counsel
of a San Antonio lawyer qualified in motorcycle accident law to get the
help you need!

Common Injuries in Motorcycle Accidents
Per the NHTSA, motorcyclists are approximately 21 times as likely as passenger
car occupants to die in a traffic crash, per vehicle mile. If the biker
evades death, the injuries sustained are often
catastrophic with long recovery periods and high medical bills. Motorcycles have less
protection than a passenger vehicle causing seemingly minor accidents
to turn into life altering events. Even with the proper protective gear,
bikers will likely suffer serious harm.
Common motorcycle injuries include:
spinal cord injuries
- Back injuries
- “Road rash” and burns
More than 80% of all reported motorcycle accidents result in death or serious
injury to the motorcyclist.
Compensation for Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Legal compensation may include, but is not limited to, the following:
- Medical bills (past and future)
- Surgical procedures
- Ongoing medical care
- Scar revision/Cosmetic surgery
- Physical therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Compensation for loss of income and future income
- Vocational rehabilitation
- Disfigurement and disability
- Physical or mental impairment or disability
- Compensation for pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium
Punitive damages may be recovered in select circumstances. These are present
to penalize or make an example of the offender for intentional behavior,
or whether they acted in a reckless manner or disregard for others.
There are many issues specific to riding motorcycles that can play a major
role in motorcycle accidents. Motorcycles are much smaller than the average
size automobile and therefore much harder to see. Bikers are often side
swiped by automobiles that simply did not see them. Injuries suffered
by bikers are often catastrophic due to the lack of protection afforded
by the motorcycle. Even while wearing the proper protective gear, a biker
can sustain life altering injuries. A skilled San Antonio
car accident attorney experienced in motorcycle accident law can help you understand
your rights and get you the compensation you deserve for your injuries
Motorcyclists often have difficulty dealing with insurance carriers in
