If you are someone who has been injured in a motorcycle accident, you must continue reading and reach out to our knowledgeable Houston personal injury attorneys to learn more about motorcycle accidents in Texas and how we can help if you have been injured in one. Here are some of the questions you may have regarding the legal process ahead:
How do most motorcycle accidents happen?
While there are some motorcycle accidents that are simply unavoidable and happen due to factors such as inclement weather conditions, in most cases, these accidents are a direct result of negligence. The most common types of negligence that cause motorcycle accidents include driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, failing to check before merging or changing lanes, tailing motorcyclists too quickly, distracted driving (e.g. texting while driving), driving while fatigued, and more. If you were injured due to any of the aforementioned, there is a very good chance that you will have a valid personal injury claim.
What is PIP insurance?
PIP insurance, also known as Personal Injury Protection, is a form of no-fault insurance designed to provide motorists with coverage to help pay for medical bills after an accident, regardless of who caused the accident. That being said, there are times where PIP insurance simply does not cover the full cost of damages sustained in an accident, and if this has happened to you, you should retain the services of an experienced Texas personal injury attorney who can gather and present all evidence needed to satisfy the burden of proof and win the compensation you deserve and need to heal.
How long can I wait to file a personal injury claim in Texas?
If you are injured in an accident in Texas, you must file your personal injury claim with the state’s statute of limitations, which is two years. Simply put, this means that you will have two years from the date of your accident to take legal action against the party liable for your injuries. Our firm is ready to guide you through every step of the claims process today. Give us a call so we can get started.
