Who Can Be Held Liable in Odessa Motorcycle Accident Cases

Typically it is negligent drivers of other vehicles that are held liable in crashes. In some cases, if the driver who causes a crash is driving for their company, the company may also be named in a claim. This can often be the case with truck drivers. Makers of motorcycle parts that malfunction might also be at fault. Government agencies responsible for maintaining roadways could be held liable if poor maintenance, flawed design or other issues cause crashes.

Who is liable in your case will depend on all the circumstances of your accident. Once we learn all the facts of your case, we’ll guide you. Contact an Odessa motorcycle accident attorney from Hanna Law Firm to learn more by calling 432-606-2378 today to set up a free consultation.

Get an Attorney’s Help in Proving Fault or You Could Lose Money

Don’t hesitate to hire a skilled Odessa motorcycle accident lawyer when you’ve been injured in a crash. Experienced injury attorneys know how to prove fault in accident cases. In Texas, if you are found to share any fault at all for your accident, your compensation will be reduced by your share of fault.

Here’s an example scenario:

Say you’re going straight through an intersection and are hit by a driver turning left. The driver might try to claim they thought they had enough time to make the turn but you were speeding and got there sooner than expected. Since motorcyclists have an undeserved reputation for being dangerous drivers, the driver might be believed. If a jury then decides that you were 40 percent at fault for the accident because you were speeding, your award amount would be reduced by that percentage. So if the award amount was $60,000, it would be reduced by 40%, or $24,000, and you would only get $36,000.
