In 2019, Texas saw over 350,000 new riders become licensed motorcyclists. This large number of new riders in a single year depicts a thriving motorcycle culture throughout the state.

Unfortunately, there is another statistic that is far more concerning. According to some publications, Houston was rated among the top 10 most dangerous cities for riders in the U.S. In 2020, Texas motorcycle accidents resulted in one fatality on average, each day of the year.

In light of these alarming figures, it is only reasonable to conclude that the motorists that share the road with riders in and around Harris County in Texas are prone to making errors. Because of the unprotected nature of a motorcycle, these errors can have grave consequences.

If you or a loved one has been in one of these accidents, it’s important to work with a Motorcycle Injury Claims Lawyer who is able to see your case as more than just a statistic. At Scott Law, our main priority is to provide you with the care and resources you need to make a full recovery and focus on your life moving forward.

When Should I Contact A Motorcycle Accident Lawyer?

 Regardless of the seriousness of your injuries, it is important to contact a Motorcycle Personal Injury Lawyer as soon as you are able. Any injury sustained in an accident can provide the basis for a valid motorcycle accident claim that may enable you to recover damages for medical bills, repairs to your motorcycle, lost wages, and more.

While these cases can be handled through insurance companies, it is generally the case that the at-fault party’s insurer will offer a settlement early on in your case to dismiss it as soon as possible.

Bringing a motorcycle injury lawyer on early in your case can help to ensure that you don’t lose out on recoverable damages you may be entitled to.

Will I Need To File A Motorcycle Accident Lawsuit?

In many cases, motorcycle accident claims are settled before a lawsuit is ever filed. In fact, an estimated 90% of cases never go to trial because of settlements.

It is important to work closely with an attorney when going through the process of your claim to ensure that you are receiving a fair settlement amount. Your attorney will assess all the evidence present in your case, work with you to gather more when necessary and use this information to negotiate a fair deal with the insurance company on your behalf.

While settlement is the case for most claims, there are the remaining 10% of cases in which claimants and insurance companies cannot reach a satisfactory agreement, and a claim goes to court. What’s more, some claimants may file a lawsuit as a strategic move that gives incentive to the insurance to negotiate a fair settlement.

In any situation, working with a skilled attorney is the best way to find the most favorable outcomes and ensure that your right to recovery for damages is protected.
