In 2021, a vehicle crash occurred every 57 seconds on Texas roadways, with a person injured every 2 minutes and 12 seconds (source). The reality is that, of the many motor vehicle crashes on the road, motorcycle accidents often result in the most serious medical issues and property damage.

What should I do if I get in a motorcycle wreck in TX?
First and foremost, check for injuries and make sure all parties receive the necessary medical help. You'll also want Texas law enforcement on the scene as quickly as possible. The police will write an official accident report detailing the events in the immediate aftermath. They'll also help you exchange driver's licenses and insurance information. Lastly, gather any relevant photographic evidence, witness statements, and contact information.
Is Texas a no-fault state for motorcycle accidents?
Texas is actually an at-fault state, meaning that the driver responsible for the motorcycle crash—or their insurance company—will ultimately cover your medical treatment costs.
However, the process of determining fault is not always straightforward. In such cases, hiring a Texas motorcycle accident lawyer can help you build a strong motorcycle wreck case and minimize financial risk. Before you do that, though, you need medical treatment. A good Texas personal injury lawyer will help you find and pay for medical treatment. Sometimes treatment can be paid for by a “letter of protection,” which means the doctor only gets paid when the case settles.
What is the average settlement for a motorcycle accident claim in Texas?
Motorcycle accident settlements vary greatly, so it's difficult to determine one state-wide average. While 75% of personal injury cases settle for less than $30,000 across the country, a select few result in payouts in the hundreds of thousands and beyond. Your specific motorcycle accident case settlement will likely depend on various factors, including medical bills incurred, lost income, the presence of lasting injuries, and more.
Is hiring a motorcycle accident lawyer in Texas necessary?
While you are not required by law to hire a Texas motorcycle accident attorney after a crash, having a legal specialist on the case may help save you a great amount of stress and money. But before you search “motorcycle accident lawyer Texas”, it helps to remember that not all legal representation is created equal.
An experienced motorcycle accident attorney from Mighty Law has extensive experience with insurance industry standards, negotiation processes, evidence collection, and Texas state laws. They also care about every aspect of your recovery. With skilled personal injury legal representation and comprehensive recovery support, you'll maximize your chances of receiving fair compensation—and a fresh start.
How much does a motorcycle accident lawyer in Texas cost through Mighty Law?
Because we work on a contingency basis, you'll only pay us if you receive a payout. For cases that settle with the insurance company before a lawsuit is filed, we'll charge a pre-suit fee of 30% (or less) of the gross settlement. For cases that proceed to lawsuits, we cap our post-suit fee at 36%.
Mighty Law also offers a 60-day no-strings-attached policy, so you can leave without paying a cent if we haven't filed your lawsuit or demand letter in that time period.
What does working with Mighty Law look like?
Our work together begins with a screening where we learn the basic facts in your case. If we can help you, you'll sign a retainer with us allowing you to try our service for 60 days with no obligation. And, even if you work with us past 60 days, you'll only pay us if your case is successful.
Once you're a Mighty Law client, we'll assign you a case manager who will work to collect documentation related to your case. If you still need medical treatment, your legal team will help you find and pay for medical treatment, find plaintiff financing, and give you other holistic support to help you on your journey to recovery. We'll handle negotiations with insurance companies and sometimes move forward with a lawsuit if a satisfactory agreement isn't reached.
How long will it take to investigate a motorcycle accident claim in TX?
The average time to payout, nationwide, is 1.5 years—but this period varies case by case. While some settlements are finished in a few months, others can take close to a decade. The time it takes for you to reach a resolution may depend on various factors, such as the insurance companies involved, your acceptance of offer amounts, the determination of fault, and the personal injury lawyer you hire.
When you work with Mighty Law, we'll hit the ground running from day one and dedicate our efforts to bringing you the results you deserve as soon as possible.
Who pays for medical bills in a motorcycle accident in TX?
Ultimately, the at-fault party or their insurance company will. But, while your case is ongoing, you'll likely need to be treated on a “letter of protection.” Being treated on a letter of protection following a motorcycle crash means that your doctor will forgo any payment until after your case settles.
