We Stand Against the Stigma Motorcycle Riders Unfairly Face
It is your right to drive a motorcycle. If you have suffered a motorcycle crash, the last thing you need is to be blamed for the wrongdoing of the other driver.

You Can Be Compensated Even If Your Actions Weren't Perfect
Texas is a modified comparative negligence state. This means that victims can file and win lawsuits even in situations where they were partially responsible for causing their crash.
What must be determined in the eyes of the court is how responsible you were and how responsible the other party was. Your compensation will be reduced by your percentage of fault for the accident. For example, if the total damages awarded in a case are $100,000 and you are found responsible for 40% of your motorcycle accident, you could receive $60,000.
On the other hand, if an attorney successfully proves you were only responsible for 10% of that same accident, you would receive $90,000. Personal injury trial law specialist Rocky Walton has spent his career persuading juries in situations just like these.
Motorcycle Accident Compensation Can Cover Many Areas
Motorcycle accidents can cause serious financial losses and stress. Our motorcycle accident lawyer can seek compensation on your behalf for:
Economic damages are awarded to directly compensate a victim for tangible financial losses. Typical examples of economic damages include:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Diminished earning capacity
- Property damage
- Vocational rehabilitation
Noneconomic damages are awarded to compensate victims for subjective losses. Potential noneconomic damages for your motorcycle accident include:
- Physical suffering
- Emotional pain
- Physical impairment
- Lost companionship
- Lost enjoyment of life
We May Be Able to Seek Exemplary Damages
The two previously covered categories are broadly referred to as compensatory damages. These are the most commonly awarded forms of compensation in a motorcycle accident lawsuit. In rare circumstances, Rocky can also seek very significant exemplary damages. Exemplary damages are awarded to punish astonishingly egregious behavior by the other driver.
Your Case Has a Strict Deadline Don't Delay
In Texas, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury lawsuit is two years from the date of your motorcycle accident.
In our state, the deadline for filing a wrongful death case is two years from the date your loved one passed away.
Our Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Can Provide Invaluable Help
Some motorcycle accident victims think that they should just handle their case on their own, especially if their crash seems clear-cut. Far too often, this results in motorcycle accident victims accepting lowball settlement offers that do not truly cover their harm.
The goal of the responsible driver's insurance company is to minimize damage to their bottom line. Their offer may seem like a lot of money upfront, but in many cases, the amount they propose will not truly cover the long-term losses a motorcycle crash causes.
Rocky Walton has spent decades representing crash victims. He knows how to quantify the entirety of your losses and seek the maximum compensation you deserve. He charges nothing upfront, so you have nothing to lose by hiring him. Reach out for his help.

A Defective Part May Have Caused Your Motorcycle Accident
Auto parts manufacturers have a duty to ensure that the products they sell are safe to operate. Any act of negligence in the design, manufacturing, or marketing of said products may make them liable in a defective products lawsuit.
This possibility does not occur to many who were injured in a motorcycle accident. Did your motorcycle shake uncontrollably prior to your crash? This is known as speed wobble, and may have been caused by a manufacturing error such as misaligned tires.
Rocky can draw upon his decades in practice and his extensive network of accident experts to investigate whether or not a defect caused your motorcycle accident.
