Jonathan C. Kieschnick is an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer in Houston Tx
Motorcycle accident claims are notoriously difficult to win due to the stereotypes of motorcyclists. This often results in the liable driver’s insurance company being able to take advantage of a motorcyclist. Jonathan C. Kieschnick, a personal injury lawyer who specializes in handling motorcycle accident cases, can help level the playing field with his brand of compassionate and effective legal representation.
Motorcycle accident injuries can be serious and life-altering
Injuries from motorcycle accidents are unfortunately known for their severity. Friction burns (road rashes), spinal injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and broken bones are some of the most common injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident. These catastrophic injuries can be life-altering, resulting in enormous medical bills, the necessity for rehabilitation treatment and long-term care, and an adversely affected quality of life.
If you have been severely injured in a motorcycle accident, Jonathan can help. Jonathan will pursue your claim with the attention, detail, and determination needed. He will work to help you get a resolution to your claim that will pay for your hospital bills, prescription costs, necessary medical devices, and ongoing therapeutic care.
Who can be held liable in a motorcycle accident?
Jonathan believes that at-fault parties in your motorcycle injury case need to be held responsible to the fullest extent of Texas tort law. Often, Jonathan takes on liable parties such as:
- Irresponsible drivers engage in negligent and dangerous behavior such as reckless driving, driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol, violating traffic laws, speeding, ignoring motorcyclists’ rights, and driving while distracted.
- State, county, and municipal governments fail to keep roadways in good condition and safe for motorists and cyclists.
- Product manufacturers can be held liable if it’s found that defective and/or dangerous parts ended up causing the crash.
Determining liability often requires an extensive investigation that will include gathering evidence, interviewing witnesses, and expert testimony—all of which Jonathan and his team can help with.
How much can you expect from your motorcycle injury case?
Various factors contribute to an accident, thus there is no set amount that any motorcycle injury case is worth. The cause(s) of the accident, the severity of your injuries, and the short- and long-term consequences that result from your injuries are just some of the considerations that will factor into what you may be able to receive.
Comparative liability, or comparative negligence, is also a mitigating factor. Comparative negligence is a principle used by Texas courts to assign blame and award damages based upon how much the injured party—in this case, you—contributed to the accident. If a Texas court finds that you contributed 25% to the accident, then your award will be 25% less than what it would have been if you were found to be completely not at fault for anything that happened.
Potentially, you may be able to recover:
- Hospital and medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages and income
Hiring an experienced motorcycle accident attorney like Jonathan is essential. He will work hard to help you secure the most favorable judgment for your case.
