How Much Money Can You get for Your Frisco Motorcycle Collision?
Every motorcycle accident is unique, so there is no flat rate of compensation for these claims. We will need to talk with you about the collision and your circumstances before we can calculate an estimate of the possible outcome.
These are some of the common categories of money damages in Frisco motorcycle accidents:
Since motorcycle riders usually get thrown from the bike and do not have large metal panels protecting them like passengers in cars, the injuries in these cases tend to be quite significant. We can include the cost of the treatment you needed for your injuries.
These bills can include things like the ambulance, emergency room or trauma center, doctors, diagnostic procedures, lab tests, imaging studies, blood transfusions, surgery, physical therapy, and hospital. We can also include pain management treatment, prosthetic devices, crutches, and wheelchairs.
After a severe injury, a motorcyclist might need extended treatment in a specialized care center, like a head trauma facility. Also, some catastrophic harm, like spinal cord damage, leaves a person in need of daily assistance with medical treatments and personal care at a long-term care center.
If you did not get paid the regular amount of your wages, salary, or other types of income because of the motorcycle accident, we can add that financial loss to your claim. Also, if you had to reduce your working hours or take a lower-paying job because of your injuries, that economic hardship can be a part of your claim.
In the event of a fatality that results from a motorcycle accident, we might be able to file a wrongful death claim for the legal beneficiaries. These cases can involve compensation that is not available to people who survive their injuries.

Missing the Deadline Can Cost You Everything
Texas law limits the amount of time that you have to file a lawsuit seeking compensation from the at-fault party for your injuries or for the loss of your close relative. The statute of limitations, Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003, is two years for personal injury or wrongful death claims.
If you do not file a lawsuit before the time expires, you will never be able to hold the person financially responsible for your losses. The time continues to run while you negotiate with the insurer.
Making an insurance claim is not enough to satisfy the statute of limitations. You must get the lawsuit filed in time to preserve your rights.

What Happens if Your Motorcycle Accident was a Hit and Run?
Some drivers panic when they realize that they hit a motorcyclist. If the person who caused the collision left the scene illegally, do not despair. Quite a few hit-and-run drivers get caught or experience remorse and turn themselves in to the authorities.
If the identity of the hit-and-run driver never gets discovered, your motor vehicle liability insurance carrier will treat the accident the same as a collision with an uninsured motorist. If you carry uninsured motorist coverage (UM/UIM) on your insurance policy, that coverage could help to pay some of your losses.

How We Establish the Legal Liability of the At-Fault Party
We have to prove all four of these elements to convince the court to find the defendant (the person we sue) responsible for paying your losses:
- The defendant owed you a legal duty of care. Every driver has an obligation to keep a careful lookout.
- The defendant failed to live up to the legal duty. Breaching a duty of care is negligence. Let’s say that the defendant changed lanes on the highway without checking to see if any vehicles were already in that lane.
- The negligence must be the thing that caused the accident. A motorcycle was in the lane, but the driver did not see it. The driver relied on his peripheral vision, which did not notice the motorcycle, which is smaller than a car or truck. The driver’s careless act of failing to keep a careful lookout before changing lanes caused him to strike the motorcycle.
- You must have quantifiable losses to pursue a personal injury claim. Physical injuries satisfy this requirement.
When we can prove all four of these factors, we can go after the defendant for your losses.
