Texas drivers must carry insurance to be able to compensate for these situations.
If you are a biker who was in an accident and injured because of the actions of another driver, there are legal actions you can take. You can seek help to receive compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and other harms you have dealt with because of the accident.
In Texas, drivers must have bodily injury liability in amount of $30,000 or more per injured person and $60,000 or more per accident. Texas law also requires motorists to have property damage liability insurance of at least $25,000. Many motorists carry even better insurance coverage than the minimum.
We know Texas law, and we will fight for you to receive the best possible outcome and compensation for your injury.
There are certain legal damages that plaintiffs must prove. These are:
- A duty of care between the parties.
- That the defendant breached that duty.
- That the defendant’s negligent actions brought upon the accident.
- And that this accident caused the motorcyclist to suffer injuries and damages.
What kind of damages can you receive compensation for?
If your case meets these criteria, you are eligible to receive economic damages for things like your lost wages and medical bills and also for damages like pain and psychological suffering. Punitive damages are harder to prove in Texas. We will listen to your situation and advise you on the best course of action.

Texas is what is known as a modified comparative fault state. Plaintiffs must prove they were 50 percent or less at fault for the accident in order to receive compensation for damages. Damages are also reduced depending on the plaintiff’s degree of fault.
