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 Firm, we offer outstanding representation for all of our clients. As a result, we have been named to the "Top 100 Trial Lawyers in Texas" for the past 4 years and have received a Superb Rating from Avvo®. Our legal team is recognized for our many victories for the injured, both in high value claims and positive verdicts at trial.

Types of Motorcycle Accidents

Because motorcycles are relatively lightweight, they are vulnerable to a wide range of accidents. Other small vehicles, such as ATVs and 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

Motorcycle Accident: Confidential SettlementHS 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

Motorcycle Accident: Settlement for ParalysisFM, 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

$1,000,000 Motorcycle Accident Settlement

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 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.
