Dallas Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Notable Motorcycle Cases
EXAMPLE ONE: Confidential Settlement in Excess of $1,000,000
HS and his wife were out riding their Harley with its new factory-attached sidecar. They hit a bump in the road where the pavement changed from old to new, and the link between the bike and the sidecar failed. HS was able to control the bike and steer it into some freshly planted crops where he thought he could safely coast to a stop, but the crops concealed a slight ditch that sent him flying. When citizens rushed to his aid, he had already assessed his situation and was horrified at the realization that he couldn't feel or move anything below his neck. What did he say to the citizens trying to help? "Please keep my wife out of the sun. She has Lupus." The sidecar manufacturer denied any liability from their sidecar but Marc Lenahan proved that the brackets were inadequately engineered for the strains, which had ultimately caused the failure.
EXAMPLE TWO: Settlement Amount is Confidential
FM, who was a sales representative at a motorcycle dealership on I-35, was riding to work in the HOV lane when a driver illegally crossed into his lane in an attempt to avoid a traffic jam in the main lanes. FM was completely paralyzed and unable to speak, so the police officer spoke only to the driver. The driver blamed FM, and the officer wrote the report accordingly. The insurance defense counsel yelled in court, "We will never settle this case!" But Marc showed that the driver had headphones on at the time that he had crossed into the HOV lane illegally and cut-off FM, who was driving reasonably. The case settled for every bit of the insurance policy, despite the insurance defense attorney's "promise" to the judge. Marc worked with FM and his family to save funds for the day when medical technology will help FM walk again.
EXAMPLE THREE: Approximately $1,000,000
The SUV driver turned left right in front of RA. She claimed that he was speeding and that she was being careful. But Lenahan Law Firm proved that she was a true threat to every single person on the roadways in Texas as her vision was so poor that she would have been declared legally blind had she not avoided her eye exams. She attempted to conceal her medical records but failed. After the nearly $1,000,000 settlement, DPS agreed to bring her in for license evaluation.
EXAMPLE FOUR: Confidential Settlement
When a mechanic at a Harley Dealership on I-75 was killed by a teen on her cell phone, his widow retained Lenahan Law Firm to help her and their son. The result was confidential.
Commonly Sustained Injuries
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, you should speak with a personal injury attorney at your earliest convenience. Motorcycle riding is not necessarily a dangerous activity; however, when a reckless or distracted individual becomes involved, the result can be
serious injury or even death. When a motorcyclist is involved in an accident with a motor vehicle, the motorcyclist is far more likely to sustain severe or
catastrophic injuries. Motorcyclists are almost completely exposed to the impact of an accident, which can result in severe injury including
paralysis. Common injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents include: back and neck injury, paralysis,
broken bones, traumatic brain injury, and spinal injury.
It is extremely important to seek the proper medical assistance after a motorcycle accident. Even when these injuries are treated properly, they can result in complications that may dramatically change the course of an individual's life.
