Involved in a Motorcycle Accident?
Get the Fair Legal Outcome You Deserve with Help from Experienced Plano, TX Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Kent Starr
Is there anything more fun than riding on your motorcycle, letting the cool breeze flow through your hair and the warm summer sun helping you feel relaxed?
Suddenly – WHAM! It all gets changed by the irresponsible actions of another motorist.
Maybe they suddenly changed lanes without using their turn signal. Perhaps they blew through a stop sign. Or maybe they were under the influence of alcohol or drugs and shouldn’t have even been in front of the wheel in the first place!
Regardless of the circumstances, you have such little personal protection on a motorcycle that you always lose when involved in an accident. You could experience devastating, even life-altering injuries like:
- Missing large amounts of skin throughout much of your body
- Breaking one or more of your limbs
- Punctured lungs or other damaged organs
- Traumatic head and brain injuries
And in the worst case, your loved one could have died – all because someone else chose to do the wrong thing and not think of your loved one’s safety.
- How are you going to financially provide for your family and yourself?
- Will you ever be able to return to work, doing what you love?
- Will you ever be able to work in any productive capacity again?
- How will you recover from your physical injuries?
- Can you recover from your injuries completely?
- Will you ever have a normal life again where you are able to do all the things you enjoy?
- How will you deal with all the medical bills that come your way?
- Will you be able to hold onto your house and vehicles while you pursue compensation for your injuries?
- Will you ever be able to ride on your motorcycle again?
- How will you emotionally deal with all the stresses of the legal system, and the stresses involved with all these changes in your life that you did not choose?
Fortunately, there’s someone who can help you navigate all of these difficulties – and any others that might arise.

Motorcycle Accident Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
The legal system is complex – so it’s not surprising you may have one or more of the questions below. Keep in mind they should not be construed as a substitute for legal advice. You should always contact an experienced personal injury attorney for a sound legal opinion.
If I am from Outside of the State of Texas, Should I Use a Texas Lawyer, or One from my Own State?
You should always use a lawyer who practices in the state in which you are injured. Personal injury lawyers can be licensed to practice in multiple states, which does happen in areas where small states have high populations near to another (think New York/New Jersey).
But here’s the thing: federal law allows states to enforce personal injury law how they best see fit. Law can vary significantly from one state to the next. It makes more sense to have a lawyer that specializes in a particular state because they can give you the strongest opinion.
Should I Talk to the Other Motorist’s Insurance Company without First Speaking with a Personal Injury Attorney?
You can do what you best see fit, but you risk not getting the full amount of compensation you deserve. Remember, insurance companies exist first and foremost to make a profit. If they pay you more money than is necessary, that hurts their profit.
Now, some insurance companies are fair and others are not. If you handle the situation on your own, they might give you a perfectly reasonable settlement outside of court. But, then again, they may take their knowledge of the situation to their advantage and offer you a lower amount than you actually deserve.
Starr & Associates offers FREE consultations and only charges a contingency fee (a percentage of the final amount you get) if you win. There’s no risk in calling about motorcycle accidents, so you might as well find out the reality of your situation.

What I Get a Speeding Ticket? Am I Still Able to Get Compensation for my Injuries?
Sometimes it’s necessary to break the law to protect your own safety. For example, someone might blow through a stop sign, forcing you to swerve into the other lane without using your turn signal. And you might have to accelerate so much that you break the speed limit to make the maneuver.
Sometimes, the legal system gets it wrong and gives you a ticket when you don’t deserve one. In those cases, you are still eligible to pursue the case in court.
If you and other drivers are partially at fault for your injuries, “comparative negligence” distributes fault among all those involved. You can still win a portion of damages for your injuries.
Make sure you speak with a professional personal injury attorney to learn more.
What if the Other Driver Doesn’t Have Insurance?
Texas state law requires all motorists to carry insurance with minimum amounts, but that doesn’t mean all do. If you are hit by an uninsured motorist, you can still sue them for financial compensation if you believe they have the means to pay.
If they do not, you can use your own policy’s uninsured motorist or medical payments coverage to pay up to the limits discussed in your policy. If the other driver has insurance, but not enough to cover their damages, your policy’s underinsured motorist coverage may come into effect.
How Long Do I Have to File a Claim in Court?
You have to move relatively quickly. The State of Texas statute of limitations for civil court actions is 2 years.
In layman’s terms, you have 2 years from the date of injury to pursue your claim in court. If you wait any longer than that, you no longer have legal options to pursue your case.
