Common Injuries From Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle accidents can often result in serious injuries, due to the lack of protection that riders have. Some of the most common injuries include:
Broken bones are one of the most common injuries in motorcycle accidents, as the human body is not designed to withstand the force of a collision.
This occurs when skin comes into contact with the pavement and can often be very severe.
Head injuries are also common in motorcycle accidents, as many riders unfortunately do not wear helmets. Head injuries can range from concussions to traumatic brain injuries and can often be life-threatening.
How an Attorney Can Help After a Motorcycle Accident

In addition, an attorney can help investigate the accident and hold the responsible parties accountable. If you have been in a motorcycle accident, don’t try to navigate the legal system on your own. Contact an experienced attorney to discuss your case.
Contributory Fault in Texas – You can Recover Damages Even If You’re Partially Responsible
Texas motorcycle accidents are governed by contributory fault. This means that you can recover damages even if you’re partially at fault. However, if it’s determined that you are more than 50% responsible, you will be barred from recovering any compensation for the accident, regardless of how severe your injuries are. If you are 50% or less at fault, your damages will be reduced by your percentage of responsibility.
Statute of Limitations For Motorcycle Accidents in Texas
In Texas, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is two years. This means you must file your claim within two years from the date of your injury.
While two years may seem like a long time, it’s important to remember that investigating and building a strong personal injury case can take time. As soon as you are able, you should contact a qualified personal injury attorney who can begin working on your behalf. The sooner you take legal action, the better your chances of recovering the compensation you deserve.
