Motorcycle accidents can be frightening. After the accident, you may have many questions, such as: “Can I receive compensation? Who should pay for my losses? What should I do now?”
You can get the answers to these and other questions by consulting a motorcycle accident lawyer in Texas from our firm. Trujillo & Sanchez, P.C. has recovered more than $500 million for injured claimants. Now, we’re ready to put our years of legal experience to work for you.
What Is the Statute of Limitations for Texas Motorcycle Accident Lawsuits?
The state’s statute of limitations governs how long you have to file a civil lawsuit in Texas. You generally have two years from your accident’s date to file your case in a court of law, per Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003.
This is a strict deadline. Even filing your lawsuit one day outside of the applicable deadline could make your case ineligible for damages. When you partner with Trujillo & Sanchez, P.C. on your motorcycle accident case, you can trust that we’ll do everything possible to file your lawsuit on time.
Compensation You Can Receive from a Motorcycle Accident Claim
You can pursue compensation for each of your injury-related losses––including those that relate to your mental health and quality of life. Texas does not cap how much you can pursue for pain and suffering in a motorcycle accident case, so there is no limit to what you can request.
A settlement or court award may account for:
- Medical bills
- Lost income
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Transportation expenses
- Childcare costs
- Pain and suffering
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Mental anguish
- The cost of replacing or repairing your motorcycle
This is just a short list of possible compensable losses. When a motorcycle accident lawyer in Texas from our team evaluates your case, they can explain what other losses you can seek.
We Will Estimate How Much You’re Owed
We want you to recover every penny you deserve. To determine how much you need, we will assess your employment records, healthcare records, and other pertinent information. We may also consult with third-party field experts to determine your past, present, and future losses.
We Will Pursue Compensation from the Liable Party
The negligent party in your case could be another motorist, parts manufacturer, or government agency. To prove another party’s negligence, we must establish:
- The other party was obliged to exercise reasonable caution.
- The other party acted without regard for others’ safety.
- The other party caused your collision.
- You suffered losses or damages as a result of the accident.
