Yes, you can, aslong as you weren’t the person who was mostly to blame for the crash. This is due to the comparative negligence law in Texas, which examines the negligence of all involved parties. You can still go after a negligent party for the percentage of blame that is assigned to them.
In Texas, you have only two years to submit a motorcycle crash claim. This is known as the statute of limitations. There are some exceptions to this time frame, but it’s best not to push your luck.
“Damages” is the legal word used to describe a person’s crash-related losses. For instance, pain and suffering, medical bills, mental anguish, property damage, permanent injury, and lost income are some examples of damages. You can add any that apply to your situation.
Permanent injuries are, unfortunately, common in motorcycle wreck cases, where head, spine, and other serious injuries are frequent. You can be compensated for your permanent injury, and you can receive a settlement to provide for the suffering you endured and for the lost income you could have earned had the accident not occurred.
Your attorney will use all available evidence to prove your case, including witness statements, physical evidence, and photo, video, and medical evidence.
