The sad truth about motorcycle accidents is that the majority of them are the result of drivers simply failing to see motorcycles. All it takes is a sudden lane change by a car or truck to change the life of a motorcyclist and his or her family forever. If you or your family member has been injured in a motorcycle accident, it is important to seek out the legal help you need from a dedicated personal injury lawyer.

Motorcycle Accidents Resulting in Catastrophic Injuries
A Texas man was riding his motorcycle down the road, exercising reasonable caution and operating his bike legally. Suddenly, a truck changed lanes without warning and pulled out in front of him. The driver of the truck failed to check whether the road was clear. The result? A serious bike crash that left the man with severe head trauma. The man's serious injury was typical for many motorcycle collisions. Because motorcycles lack the basic protections—like seat belts, airbags, and structural designs—that cars have, the injuries involved are often more serious than car accident injuries.
When the San Antonio motorcycle accident lawyers at The Law Offices of Tyler & Peery handle motorcycle accident lawsuits involving catastrophic injuries, we place great emphasis on maximizing results. We obtain all medical records and often partner with highly-regarded medical experts. Because of our work, we learn exactly how your motorcycle accident has affected your body, and you can gain a complete physical picture—not just what is wrong today, but how your injuries will impact your life for years to come.
Maximizing the value of your motorcycle accident case also requires taking other factors into account, besides your personal injury itself. At the Law Offices of Tyler & Peery, we seek compensation for our clients' unpaid medical bills, missed work, and pain and suffering.
How We Investigate Motorcycle Accident Claims
Were you or a family member the victim of a serious motorcycle accident when hit by a car or truck? Run off the road? Struck in an intersection? Forced into oncoming traffic? Rear-ended and lost control? Cut off in traffic? If something like this has happened to you, talking with our attorneys can help you understand your options and develop a strategy for the best possible results. We are a trial law firm. This means that we actively try cases in the courtroom to pursue full and fair civil and financial justice for our clients who suffered injury or loss in a motorcycle accident.
We use the latest technology and expert witnesses to present a compelling argument in your case, including:
- High-tech video equipment
- Accident reconstruction software and specialists
- Medical illustrations and scientific animation to tell the story of how your injuries happened
A common tactic of defense lawyers in these cases is pointing out the fact that an accident victim was not wearing a motorcycle helmet. Whether or not you or a loved one was wearing a helmet should have no bearing on whether you bring a personal injury or wrongful death claim against a negligent driver. In fact, some studies have shown that the risk of injury is similar, whether a helmet is worn or not, due to the weight of the helmet potentially adding pressure on the vertebrae during an accident.
If you were seriously hurt in a motorcycle accident caused by a negligent driver or if you lost a loved one in a fatal bike collision, contact our The Law Offices of Tyler & Peery today to discuss your case with a caring and accomplished motorcycle accident lawyer in San Antonio. We can fight for the fair compensation that you need and deserve.
