Dallas Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Were you injured in a motorcycle accident?
Motorcycle accidents are extremely dangerous, as motorcyclists have very
little other than a helmet and clothing to protect them at the time of
a collision. An impact with a vehicle, even at low speeds, can lead to
serious, permanent, or even fatal injuries. In most cases, the responsible
party is the person driving a car, truck, SUV, or van, who failed to notice
the motorcyclist sharing the road.
In the aftermath of a serious motorcycle accident, you need a Dallas injury
attorney to help you fight for an adequate settlement. At Lenahan Law

Types of Motorcycle Accidents
Because motorcycles are relatively lightweight, they are vulnerable to
a wide range of accidents. Other small vehicles, such as
sport bikes, are also vulnerable to wreckage on account of negligent drivers, road
work, or other safety hazards. Our attorneys work with the victims of
such accidents to help them through the recovery process.
Common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Head-on collisions
- Rear-end collisions
- Other drivers making left-hand turns
- Speeding or driving drunk
- Road hazards
- Faulty tires or safety systems on the bike
Commonly Sustained Injuries
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. Because motorcyclists are fully exposed to the impact of an accident,
motorcyclists are far more likely to sustain severe or
catastrophic injuries. Such accidents often lead to nerve damage and severe abrasions that are
prone to serious infection.
Additionally, motorcyclists often suffer the following injuries:
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, you should seek proper
medical assistance as soon as possible. Even when these injuries are treated
properly, they can result in complications that may dramatically change
the course of your life. Whether or not you experience such complications,
we advise you to speak with a Dallas motorcycle injury attorney at your
earliest convenience. A legal professional can analyze your case, pinpoint
the cause of your accident, and proceed to help you seek a favorable verdict.
Our 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 for the accident, 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 at the time.
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
be able to help FM walk again.
EXAMPLE THREE: Approximately $1,000,000
The SUV driver turned left right in front of RA. She claimed that RA had
been speeding and that she was driving carefully. In spite of these claims,
Lenahan Law Firm was able to prove 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
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.
