Accidents happen fast on the road, where split-second decisions can have severe and long-lasting consequences. And while any type of driver can suffer serious injuries, motorcycle riders are exceptionally vulnerable. With so little between them and other vehicles, it should come as no surprise that accidents involving motorcycles are many times more likely to result in serious injury or death than any other type of accident. If you’re injured in a motorcycle accident as a result of someone else’s negligence, Collmer Law Office will help you get the payment you deserve.
How Does Texas Determine Fault?
Like most things in life, motor and auto accidents usually aren’t black and white. Instead, responsibility often comes in shades of gray. Fortunately, Texas uses a modified comparative fault system when assessing accidents on the road. Under this system, all parties are assessed for their relative responsibility in causing the accident. For example, you may be found to be 20% responsible, while the other party is 80% responsible. As a result, any compensation you would be awarded for your injuries would be reduced by 20%. In Texas, as long as you are found to be less than 51% at fault, you are entitled to compensation.
