How Will a Temple Motorcycle Injury Lawyer Help Me?

Who’s Liable For My Temple Motorcycle Accident Injuries?
Accidents are rarely straightforward. Many times, more than one person’s negligence contributes to a motorcycle crash. In Texas, you might be entitled to compensation from anyone who plays a role in your motorcycle accident, no matter how small. This might include:
- Drivers of other motor vehicles
- Other motorcyclists
- Truck drivers

It’s important to seek money from anyone who shares fault for your Temple motorcycle accident. Our attorneys will thoroughly investigate the circumstances surrounding your crash. We’ll pinpoint why the accident happened and identify everyone who may be to blame. The more liable parties you can identify, the better your chances of getting the money you deserve.
Can I Get Money If I Share Fault For My Temple Motorcycle Crash?
Yes, if you share less than 51 percent of the blame for your accident. Under Texas state modified comparative fault rules, you can seek compensation as long as someone else is mostly responsible for your injuries.
If you do share some of the blame, it’s important to understand:
- Your damages will be reduced, and
- You may be on the hook for some of the other victims’ damages.
For example, let’s say you’re allocated 20 percent of the blame for an accident. You suffered $100,000 in damages. Under Texas state comparative fault rules, your award will be reduced by 20 percent. So, you can get, at most, $80,000. At the same time, you may be responsible for 20 percent of other victims’ damages.
What Damages Can I Get For My Motorcycle Accident Injuries?
Our attorneys will seek monetary damages on your behalf. This can include compensation for:
- Lost wages
