Investigation by a Dallas Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Is Essential

The attorneys of Todd E. Tkach, P.C. approach all motorcycle accident cases in a similar manner. A thorough investigation of the facts of the case is essential and is the first order of business. The investigation is conducted with the resolution of last resort in mind; a jury trial. Even if the motorcycle accident case doesn’t go to trial, it will settle, if at all, based on the facts that can be proved and demonstrated if the case were to go to trial. That investigation necessitates the involvement of an attorney who is knowledgeable and experienced with the substantive and procedural laws and who can artfully present and demonstrate the facts and evidence at a trial by jury. 

Damages a Dallas Motorcycle Accident Lawyer May Prove

The investigation conducted for a motorcycle accident includes an examination of the two main elements of an accident case; “liability” and “damages”.  Liability is the first hurdle that must be overcome.  What does “liability” mean?  Essentially, it means; who’s at fault for the collision?  In some cases, the question of who was at fault is very clear.  But in others it must be investigated and demonstrated.  The issue of liability is usually where automobile insurance companies attack first.  After all, if they can show that the collision was not the fault of their insured, they will pay you nothing and you would lose if the motorcycle accident case went to trial.  A skilled advocate can make all the difference.  In some cases, the question of liability may be revealed with just a cursory investigation of the vehicles and the scene of the motorcycle accident.  In other cases, it may be necessary to hire expert car accident reconstructionists.  No matter what your motorcycle accident case may require, rest assured, the attorneys of Todd E. Tkach, P.C. will take all measures necessary to establish the liability of the negligent driver.

Damages is the second main part of a motorcycle accident case. Even when you clearly establish liability against a negligent driver, their insurance company will undoubtedly attack your sustained damages. They may argue that your injuries were pre-existing or that the mishap could not possibly have caused your injuries. Many times, they’ll argue that your injuries are simply worth little or no compensation. This is where a skilled litigator can increase your compensation. On first thought, “damages” seem to be pretty clear. But, there are many types of damages recognized by Texas law that most people are probably not aware of. We will determine all possible types of damage and will put together the evidence to prove them.

Motorcycle Damages a Dallas Motorcycle Accident Lawyer May Prove

It may sound strange, but the damage most likely to concern a motorcycle rider, and cause the most frustration, is the damage to your motorcycle, its after-market add-ons and accessories. We often hear about the frustration motorcycle accident victims experience when trying to get their motorcycle repaired. After a collision, most people will be without their motorcycle for days or even weeks. Whether the damage is repairable or the motorcycle is “totaled,” it will take some time to repair the motorcycle or purchase another. Your motorcycle may not be just for recreation and you may depend on it for your primary means of transportation. Not having it for transportation is extremely frustrating and irritating. Making matters worse, you have to deal with the negligent driver’s insurance company, which is no hurry to pay you for anything. Let the Todd E. Tkach, P.C. carry you through the whole process.

We’ll help you get a rental car and will seek to have the negligent driver’s insurance company pay for it. Many times, insurance companies will not even offer a rental car, even though they are required by law to pay for it. We can also refer you to a qualified repair shop for repairs. Most insurance companies will direct you to one of their “Blue Ribbon” repair facilities. Too often under those circumstances, we’ve heard the complaints that they didn’t repair everything, or that the work was poorly done. You may also have a claim for diminution in value. That’s the difference between what your motorcycle was worth prior to the accident and what it’s worth after repairs from the motorcycle accident. This is a vehicle damage that even some experienced attorneys fail to even ask for or inquire about. It’s a mistake that can cost thousands of dollars. To be sure, an insurance company will never bring up the vehicle damage of diminution in value and, of course, will make no offer for that damage. If your vehicle is “totaled,” we’ll fight for compensation for the full market value and won’t settle for the discounted market value offered by the insurance company. You need the help of an experienced Dallas motorcycle accident lawyer to maximize the recovery of your motorcycle accident case.

Physical Injuries a Dallas Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
May Prove

The physical injuries suffered from a motorcycle accident can be the most challenging from which to seek compensation.  What is fair compensation for injuries?  In years past, as a rule of thumb, some people used to use a multiplier of the amount of the medical bills as their measure of their damages.  Those days are long gone!  In this era of tort reform, there is no magic formula to determine the value of physical injuries from a motorcycle accident.  You need the knowledge and skill of a qualified Dallas motorcycle accident lawyer to maximize the recovery for your physical injuries.  Some of the elements of damages that may be recovered for motorcycle accident injuries include claims for both past and future medical bills, physical impairment, mental anguish, physical pain and suffering, lost wages, loss of consortium, disfigurement, loss of body part, bystander claims and fear of future disease or disfigurement.  Demonstrating these damages requires a painstaking development process, which the Dallas Motorcycle accident attorneys aTodd E. Tkach, P.C. have done hundreds of times.  The process includes a thorough investigation, and complete and accurate record keeping, including medical records and bills, photographs, diaries, police reports, accident reconstruction analysis, investigative reports and testifying expert reports.  The Dallas motorcycle accident lawyers with Todd E. Tkach, P.C. have the education, knowledge, and experience to properly prepare a motorcycle accident case and to present it to insurance adjusters or juries. 

After your case if fully prepared, we’ll present it and demand a settlement from the negligent driver’s insurance company.  If possible, we’ll try to reach a settlement through aggressive negotiations.  In most cases, a settlement can be reached.  However, if the negligent driver’s insurance company refuses to settle, we’ll take it to trial and present it to a jury.  In that event, we will ask not only for all of the available elements of damage, but also pre-judgment interest, court costs and post-judgment interest until the full amount is paid.

Initial consultations are always free and there are no costs or attorneys' fee unless we get a monetary recovery for you.

Don’t “go-it-alone.” The long-term effects could be devastating.
