Motorcycle Accidents

Barnes Law Firm in Houston, Texas handles motorcycle accidents and injuries as well as related motorcycle catastrophic injury claims.

Most often, it is the thrill and freedom of the open road that draws motorcyclists to the Texas highways. Unfortunately however, drivers cannot always see motorcyclists as easily as they can other cars, which can make riding a motorcycle dangerous. Simply riding a motorcycle can be dangerous, but if you are injured in a motorcycle accident caused by another motorist, it is likely you may have suffered a serious injury. Besides a helmet and some leather clothing, there is little else in the form of safety equipment to protect a motorcycle rider from a catastrophic injury. If you have been injured in a motorcycle crash, you need the experienced motorcycle accident and injury lawyers at Barnes Law Firm. Our attorneys have extensive experience handling cases involving motorcycle accidents in Houston, and can assess your case at a free initial consultation.

Motorcycle accidents can happen to any rider and most often when they least expect it. The motorcycle accident attorneys at Barnes Law Firm, LLP in Houston, Texas know that motorcycles have as much a right to Texas highways as do cars and trucks, but many automobile drivers disregard this fact.

If you or your loved one has been involved in a motorcycle accident, you may be entitled to substantial monetary compensation. It is important that you have an experienced and knowledgeable motorcycle accident lawyer in Houston, Texas like at Barnes Law Firm.

  • Physical Pain and Suffering
  • Medical Bills
  • Property Damage
  • Mental Anguish and Loss
  • Lost Wages and Income
  • Disfigurement

Motorcycle accidents are often caused by another driver’s negligent actions, and these negligent or inattentive actions include:

  • The driver turning directly in front of a motorcyclist
  • The driver entering the street from a driveway or parking spot and pulling out into traffic in front of the motorcyclists
  • The driver talking on their cell phone
  • The driver’s failure to yield at an intersection or running a stop sign or red light
  • The driver’s inattention while driving past a motorcyclist
  • The driver’s failure to look both ways when resuming travel after stopping at a stop sign
  • The driver’s impaired by drugs or alcohol

If you are a motorcyclist, you are aware that other users of the Texas highways do not always pay much attention to you and their lack of attention creates dangers that lurk around every turn you make as you navigate your way through traffic.
