Don’t be a Victim Twice: Hire an Experienced Houston Personal Injury Lawyer

The injuries and consequences of motorcycle accidents are similar to those of car accidents but amplified. When you’re hit on a motorcycle, there’s little to protect you from flying a hundred feet at breakneck speeds. You may suffer injuries such as shattered bones and hips, compound and simple fractures, as well as complete breaks. You also may experience not only head trauma like concussions, fractured skulls and traumatic brain injury, but also spinal cord injuries resulting in paralysis, quadriplegia, tetraplegia and paraplegia.

The costs of these injuries can be astronomical, and missing extended time at work can exacerbate the financial consequences. If you believe that another party is responsible for your motorcycle accident and the injuries you have suffered, you may be able to le suit to recover damages. Common damages that you may claim include lost wages, future lost earnings, medical care costs, physical therapy and rehabilitation costs as well as pain and suffering.

Another area of automobile cases in which Attorney Walker is well experienced are accidents involving tanker truck and tractor trailers. State and Federal law regulates how trucks are maintained. Drivers must ll out a vehicle inspection reports. These reports can be crucial evidence that can help an experienced truck wreck attorney reconstruct the accident by establishing the condition of the truck. A truck crash lawyer will also conduct an immediate investigation into the history of the driver and the service history of the truck involved.  When you get behind the wheel, you’re at the mercy of other drivers.

If you or someone you know has been seriously injured in a truck accident you will need to consult with a Houston Personal Injury Lawyer. A semi truck accident lawyer will be familiar with 18 wheeler accidents and the particular laws that govern the trucking industry. Overloaded freight, driver fatigue and speed may be factors in 18 wheeler accidents, and a trucking accident attorney who knows the regulations and the industry can prove a driver was at fault.

Do not hesitate. If you have been injured as the result of an automobile accident, motorcycle wreck or tractor trailer accident, contact Walker Texas Lawyer today by calling 713-552-1117.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
