Motorcycle crashes tend to be much more serious than car accidents. Even if you simply lay your bike down on the road, you’re likely to suffer road rash or broken bones — and that’s a best-case scenario. Insurance companies also try to paint riders in a bad light, as if the accident were somehow your own fault. You need a motorcycle accident lawyer(Link→Service Page) in your corner who will fight for just compensation for your injuries.
Negligence and the Texas Legal Standard
The vast majority of personal injury cases are related to neglect or negligence. Everyone in society is expected to uphold certain standards of care towards others. Everyone is expected to drive sober, for example, as a standard of care towards other motorists on the road. If anyone engages in an action, or omits an action, which breaches that duty of care and then injures someone else, it is considered negligence under Texas law. Your personal injury lawyer in San Antonio will be tasked with proving negligence on the part of the person who injured you.
Proving negligence involves proving the following:
First, the defendant in your personal injury case owed you — the plaintiff — a duty of care. Your case must revolve around the fact that the other party or parties owed you a duty of care, whether that was in a medical setting, on a roadway or in some other circumstance.
Next, your personal injury lawyer must prove that the defendant did not fulfill their duty of care towards you. Our team will conduct a thorough investigation to prove that the defendant either acted or omitted an action in a negligent matter. There must be evidence that can be presented at trial that proves that this duty of care was breached by the guilty party or parties.
Finally, your attorney must prove that your injuries and/or losses were caused by the defendant. The negligence of the defendant must be the proximate, or most immediate, cause of the injuries you suffered. This means that you never would have suffered injury in the first place, were it not for the defendant’s negligent action or inaction.
- Strict Liability
- Statute of Limitations in Texas

- Costs of Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney
If your personal injury claim meets the standards of strict liability in Texas, then negligence does not need to be proved. Whether the defendant was negligent or not is irrelevant under strict liability. Certain types of injury cases immediately invoke strict liability, which assumes that the defendant must assume responsibility for your injuries. For example, product liability claims in Texas automatically fall under strict liability. If you are injured because of a poorly manufactured product, you do not have to prove negligence to win your case.
Statute of Limitations in Texas
The State of Texas takes time limits very seriously when it comes to personal injury cases. The Statute of Limitations is a rule that defines the amount of time you have to file a personal injury claim. If you fail to meet the statute of limitations deadline, you may not be able to sue for compensation. This is why you should always call a personal injury lawyer in San Antonio as soon as possible after your accident, so no deadlines are missed.
The Statute of Limitations in most cases in Texas is two years from the date of the accident that causes an injury. If a loved one dies as a result of someone else’s negligent actions, the Statute of Limitations is two years from the date they died. Property damages also have a two-year statute of limitations. If your case is not filed before the two-year deadline expires, you will likely forfeit your right to sue for compensation.
There is one exception to the Statute of Limitations, which is known as the “discovery rule.” If a person discovers that they have an injury at a later date after an accident, then the Statute of Limitations countdown does not begin until the date of that discovery. Whiplash injuries, for example, are notorious for not presenting symptoms for several weeks or even months after an automobile accident. The Marco Bass Law Firm can help you to determine the accurate Statute of Limitations for your case, and will ensure that all deadlines are promptly met.
Do You Need a Personal Injury Attorney?
The staffers at insurance companies may act like your friends after an accident, but they’re not. They are representing the interests of their shareholders, and will work to minimize your compensation amount. Our duty at the Marco Bass Law Firm is to work for your best interests, to ensure that you receive a fair settlement or summary judgment to pay for your injuries, lost wages and suffering.
If you have suffered a severe or consequential injury that impacts your quality of life, lost a loved one due to negligence, or were harmed because some broke the law (a drunk or distracted driver, for example), you should hire a personal injury lawyer in San Antonio. There are the types of injuries that are worthy of legal attention.
Our attorneys at the Marco Bass Law Firm will help with every step of the claims process. We will even deal with insurance companies, employers and other third parties that may be interfering with your recovery or causing undue stress. We are not afraid to take on big insurance companies or defendants on behalf of our personal injury clients.
Costs of Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney
We work on a contingency basis for our clients. This means, first of all, that we do not collect any money up front for our services. We don’t even charge for your first consultation with an attorney. It’s free. Our payment is contingent upon us winning your case. We only collect our fee when we come to an agreeable settlement figure with the defendant, or if we win a summary judgment against the defendant in court. You’ll pay nothing out of pocket until we win your case.
