The aftermath of a motorcycle crash can upend your everyday life, but you shouldn’t have to pay for someone else’s carelessness. If you were injured in a motorcycle accident, determining liability and recovering compensation are two critical steps to take for your future.
Our Anna motorcycle accident attorneys from Underwood Law Office are ready to work with you. We can investigate your accident to determine where responsibility lies for your injuries and seek fair compensation through a settlement or court award.
Your Accident Compensation Depends on the Specifics of Your Case
There is no set amount of compensation that you’re entitled to as the victim of a motorcycle accident. Each case is different. When you sit down with our Anna motorcycle attorneys, we will discuss possibilities and expectations based on your circumstances. In general, the compensation amount may be determined by many factors, including:
- Your medical expenses, such as hospital stays, healthcare appointments, treatments, surgeries, medical devices, rehab, or prescriptions
- Wages you lost due to being injured and unable to work while recovering
- Future earnings you may lose if your injury prevents you from working in your current career or from working at all
- Long-term care, as may be required after severe injuries
- Property damage or loss from the accident
- Loss of enjoyment of life, if your injuries prevent you from doing the things you did before the accident
- The pain and suffering you experience now and that may linger for months or years
- The many costs associated with disfigurement or disability
- Funeral expenses for surviving family members who lost a loved one
Our personal injury attorneys have recovered millions of dollars in compensation for our clients. We work hard for all of our clients and will be by your side every day in your fight for a fair settlement or judgment.

The Statute of Limitations to File a Lawsuit in Texas
There is a time limit for filing a personal injury lawsuit after a crash. It begins to count down from the day of your accident. Generally, you have two years to file for a personal injury case and two years for a wrongful death case. (Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003) How long you have may vary, depending on a few factors. Our attorneys will help you figure out your timeframe for filing.
Liability in Texas Motorcycle Accidents
Determining who is at fault for your accident and injuries is critical to determining who should pay for your damages. Several scenarios illustrate potential liability:
- Car and truck drivers may not see you and your motorcycle. Perhaps they don’t look carefully before changing lanes or turning, or they’re distracted because they’re texting or talking on the phone.
- Drivers may choose to drive while under the influence, which can affect their ability to drive safely.
- Drivers may execute illegal maneuvers or break traffic laws. If speeding, reckless driving, or other negligent driving behaviors led to your crash, you could hold them responsible.
Essentially, if a driver was negligent and caused your crash, we can work to hold them accountable. If the driver was an employee working at the time of the accident, their employer—such as a trucking company—could also bear liability.
Motorcycle Accidents Lead to Serious Injuries
In 2020, about 83,000 motorcyclists were injured on the road, per the Insurance Information Institute (III). Motorcycle crashes are one of the most devastating accident types on the roads. If someone else caused your crash, you shouldn’t have to pay. Families who lost loved ones also deserve justice for their loss. Our team can help you go after the results you need in a claim or lawsuit.
