An Aggressive Houston Motorcycle Accident Lawyer to Represent You
Motorcycles are fun, economical and practical for getting around in Texas. But motorcycle riders, who have little to protect them against severe crashes, are more vulnerable to injury than people behind the wheels of cars and trucks. When crashes happen, our motorcycle accident attorneys go to work to get financial compensation for your injuries.
Even the most conscientious rider is at risk for accidents. With or without a helmet and protective safety gear, motorcycle accident victims often experience the most severe types of injuries as compared to other motor vehicle accidents. These injuries often require surgery, hospitalization, medication and physical therapy. You may also need home medical equipment and home care attendants. In the meantime, you may not be able to work while you are recovering from your injuries.
Being injured in a motorcycle accident can be a frightening, confusing and frustrating experience. You need an experienced attorney in your corner who will fight for your rights. We have helped many clients through this difficult time so they could focus on recovering from their injuries and rebuilding their lives.
Smith & Hassler will work with you to get you the money owed to you for your losses. That way, you can focus on your health and your recovery and not have to worry about whether you have enough money to pay your accident-related expenses.
Holding negligent drivers accountable
There is a bias against motorcyclists. Many people think motorcyclists like to take risks and that it must be their fault when there's an accident. This bias exists in the insurance industry, too. The fact is, most motorcyclists are responsible and drive safely. Our attorneys fight back against this bias and work to prove the accident was not your fault.
Motorcycle accidents usually happen because of another driver's negligence. As your attorney, we will conduct an investigation into what really happened. The driver may have been speeding, texting or was falling asleep at the wheel. Our legal team knows where to look for evidence of negligence and how to build a strong, legal case.
Usually, the insurance company will make an initial settlement offer. But it often won't come close to covering the full cost of your accident. They may even tell you it's the best that they can do. We don't accept that. We take them to the negotiating table to reach a settlement that works for you. When insurance companies see that we have built a strong case, they usually end up making a favorable settlement. If they don't, we will fight for your financial compensation in court.
In addition to medical expenses and lost wages, we may also seek compensation for other damages, such as pain and suffering and mental anguish.
As a responsible motorcyclist, you have every right to be on the road. When you are injured as a result of someone else's negligence, you should not have to pay for their mistakes. We stand up for your rights.
