It can be difficult to understand your legal rights after a motorcycle accident. At the Smith Law Firm in Orange, our lawyers are board-certified in personal injury trial law in Texas. We have more than 70 years of combined experience handling cases like yours. We can protect your rights and help you explore your options after being injured.

Motorcycle Riders Have Rights

Motorcyclists have the same rights as other motorists on the road. Unfortunately, many drivers fail to recognize the rights of motorcycle riders, even after they have caused a motorcycle accident. The negligent driver will point the finger at the victim, claiming that the motorcycle rider was going too fast or driving recklessly. Our attorneys know how to deal with these situations. We know that there is a bias against motorcyclists, and that many non-motorcyclists believe that motorcycle riders are careless.

We have the skill to overcome this bias. We are committed to holding the other driver accountable for negligence and getting you the compensation you deserve.

Motorcycle Wrecks And Serious Injuries

There is a greater likelihood of life-changing injuries in motorcycle wrecks than in other automobile accidents. Motorcyclists have little protection against impact. A helmet may not be sufficient protection against being hit by a much larger vehicle, not to mention the secondary impact that occurs when the motorcyclist then hits the road.

Head injuries and spinal cord injuries are two of the most common and most severe injuries motorcyclists suffer after a motorcycle accident. Broken bones, lacerations and other injuries often accompany these serious injuries that only add to the costly medical expenses and treatment victims need now and in the future.

It is vital to understand the long-term impact of your injuries to help build a strong case. Our attorneys care about protecting your needs now and in the future, and we provide personalized, compassionate advice to help you get the best results possible.

Experience Matters When Filing A Lawsuit Or Insurance Claim

You may be entitled to receive damages for your medical bills, disfigurement, lost wages, economic damages, and your pain and suffering after a motorcycle accident. We will make sure all options for recovery are explored so you can focus on getting better.

Our lawyers can investigate your accident, collect and preserve evidence, and obtain witness accounts and reports to see if and how the other driver can be held liable. We can also help you file an insurance claim and make sure you are receiving fair treatment and compensation.

Personal injury claims involving motorcycle wrecks can be very complex. Our lawyers' knowledge of the legal system and experience aggressively fighting for victims help us find the best outcome possible in your specific case.
