Texas Motor Cycle Accident Lawyers

No matter how you slice it, riding a motorcycle always poses a greater risk than driving in a car. This may not be what motorcycle enthusiasts want to believe but these are just the facts based on real statistics. However, this does not mean that people who are injured in motorcycle accidents are any less entitled to compensation as any other motorists. In fact, at least 5 in 10 motorcycle accidents are caused by another driver and not by the rider him/herself. motorcycle accidents attorneys
If you or someone you care for has been injured in a motorcycle accident that was caused by another driver then you or your loved one may be entitled to compensation for damages, not only for medical bills but also for pain and suffering, loss of wages and possibly even punitive damages. For example, if the motorcycle accident was caused by a drunk driver then not only can you file a claim but there will also more than likely be criminal charges filed against that driver.
The best thing to do is gather as many facts as possible at the time of the accident. If it is at all possible take photographs of the accident scene. Document witness names and telephone numbers, this may come in handy in the future. If the police report does not specify which driver was at fault and the matter is unclear, an attorney can help you file your claim and prove which party was actually responsible for the accident. This is where your witness list will come in handy, as well.motorcyle accident injury Lawyers

Serious and Traumatic Injury Lawyer and Attorney, Loss of income

Loss of Income and Wages

Off Work
You must not work if the doctor puts you on disability. Have the doctor provide you with an “Off Work Order” to give to your employer. Make sure your employer understands that the reason you are unable to work is due to the accident. If the doctor releases you to return to work, and you think you should not return, at least try to work, then, return to the doctor stating you are unable to work.car accident attorneys

Loss of Business
Self-employed clients should hire someone to replace them while they are disabled. The loss is the cost of the replacement. Otherwise, you must show by records a reduction in your gross income due to your inability to do your work. Past tax records, accountant’s statements and current profit/loss forms are useful. It is helpful for you to document your loss of income as you lose the income, rather than waiting until after you return to work.accident law

Loss of Wages
If you were off work at the time of the accident and could have returned to work if the accident would not have happened, you may be entitled to compensation for loss of income, or earning capacity. If you wish to claim loss of wages, or earning capacity, make sure your doctor provides you with an “Off Work Order” and a “Return to Work Order” to show the times you could not work. You must also show you were employed, or could have been employed had it not been for the injury.personal injury law

Money to Live On
You may be entitled to disability benefits through your work. You may also be entitled to State Disability Insurance to help you through your disability period. Some of your payments may be paid by insurance while you are disabled. You may possibly be able to borrow money from relatives or friends to help you through your period of disability. Loss of income is a hardship. However, you should not work while the doctor says you are disabled.
