Austin and Tyler Motorcycle Accident Head Injury Attorneys
Helmet or No Helmet, Bikers Are at Serious Risk of Brain Injury
The great helmet debate will never end. The statistics show that motorcycle helmets reduce deaths and reduce head injuries. But the statistics also show that many motorcyclists still suffer brain injury, head wounds, facial trauma and neck injuries even when they are wearing approved headgear.
At Colley & Colley, L.L.P., we don't judge cases or clients on the basis of helmet use. We focus on holding negligent drivers accountable. We focus on making sure that our motorcycle accident clients get the medical care they need and compensation they deserve for the resulting hardships.
With offices in Austin and Tyler, we have handled motorcycle crashes across East Texas and beyond. Contact us today for a free consultation with experienced personal injury lawyers who will fight for brain injury victims and their families.
Austin Motorcycle Accident Head Injury Attorneys
We are familiar with the serious injuries common in motorcycle accidents, from spinal cord injuries to broken bones and road rash. Board-certified personal injury lawyer Paul Colley Jr. is a motorcycle rider himself, and he has handled every motorcycle crash scenario. He is particularly attuned to the life-changing impact of head trauma suffered by bikers, including:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Post-concussion syndrome
- Skull fractures
- Cervical fractures
- Broken jaw or facial bones
- Eye injuries or hearing damage
Our experienced trial attorneys, Paul Colley, Jr. and brother Paul Colley Jr., are skilled at detailing the economic impact, the physical pain and disabilities, and the personal devastation of a brain injury. We also have the resources to overcome the bias of police officers, juries and "witnesses" who assume that the biker was at fault. We know the true causes of motorcycle accidents, and we have a network of experts who can examine the evidence and help us show that the auto driver was at fault.
Texas Helmet Laws and Your Personal Injury Case
The state of Texas does not mandate helmet use, except for riders under age 21. Nonetheless, if your loved one was not wearing a helmet the defense can argue comparative negligence, which reduces compensation by a corresponding percentage. We keep the focus on the negligence that caused the collision, and we work to show that our client would have suffered serious injuries regardless.
We are committed to helping clients recover as fully as possible, and to ensuring clients have the financial resources for medical care, special care and lost income. For dedicated and compassionate representation, call 844.325.9290 or contact us by e-mail to arrange a free case evaluation.
