I highly recommend Carabin & Shaw. I got in an auto accident for the first time and of course was scared out of my mind. Margaret Hernandez and the rest of the team eased my mind about the whole process. Definitely great customer service and professionalism. I am also very happy with the deal I got. If I ever (which I hope I don’t) get into any other trouble, Margaret Hernandez is the one I will call on. Thank you so much for everything!

I was in an auto accident in October of 2021. I reached out to Carabin & Shaw through a recommendation of a friend of mine. They listened to what I had to say and very professionally told me they would take my case on.The entire process was very easy and I am very happy that I chose this law firm. Very communicative and always alerted me of what the next steps would be. They set up all my appointments and always checked in with me on a regular basis.When I would call I would quickly get a return call if they were busy. No question I had was ever seen as a bother to them.I cannot recommend using Carabin & Shaw enough. I assure you that they will be the lawyers I recommend to everyone, just as they were to me. If you have been in an auto accident, reach out to this amazing law firm. Do not try and deal with the situation on you own. Thank you so much for all of your help Carabin & Shaw!

From the front desk to the back end staff/attorneys that assisted with all my needs. Thank you for making a terrible experience easy and straightforward. The information you all provided was very beneficial and I will be sure to use this company going forward whenever possible.

Mr Tom Ard and Stephanie Ibarra have been tremendous help during this entire process. Had a vehicle accident that resulted in a total loss of our vehicle. From the very first call to the end, we were kept updated every single step and always had calls from Stephanie to see how we were doing. Stephanie was very responsive to all our questions and appointments were always set up for us in a quick manner. We are incredibly happy with everything, the company is amazing, Mr Ard and Stephanie are very professional and worked with us. We are very satisfied and we recommend them to everyone.

I have the best experience ever with Carabin & shaw and Mr Bates, when I had my accident back to August 2018 at that moment I hired different attorneys firm that had my case cold until March 2020 when I fired them and look to Carabin & Saw direccion and in the very first moment the started with my case with professionalism, transparency and to be honest with you, nothing I says will be enough to express how happy I am with Carabin and Shaw, I will recommend you to consider your options when you need an attorney.I hope newer needs to go through this kind of process any more because is very difficult for all the parties involved even more for who's been affected financially and also injured by the accident but if I need someone who is going to fight for my rights that law firm is going to be Carabin & Shaw

This is a great company. Everyone is so wonderful. They are easy to get a hold to and are very timely on responding back as well as keeping you updated. Unfortunately I’ve been in two incidents with the last two years and both incidents I’ve used them as my legal representation. I have nothing, but wonderful things to say about these guys. If I were ever to be involved in another incident they would be my first call most definitely. I would recommend any and every one in need of legal representation to come here.!

Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Dallas

A Motorcyclist’s Rights Following a Bike Crash

Referring to the Texas DOT the number of registered bikes has more than doubled in Texas. That should not come as a surprise due to the state’s large size, there are plenty of roads and highways in Texas for people to enjoy driving. Motorcyclists love to hit the roads when the weather permits, feeling the wind blowing on their faces. According to the latest driving statistics from the Texas Department of Transportation, 400,000 motorcycle riders traverse Texas roads every week. With this large number of motorcycle riders on Texas roads and highways, the chances for motorcycle accidents increase.

Dallas Bike Accident Lawyers

Motorcycle accidents can happen for a variety of reasons.

Data shows, that a biker involved in an accident is 5 times more likely to be injured and 37 times more at risk to being killed.

Data for 2019 indicates that 463 riders died in motorcycle accidents on Texas roads. 33 of which were passengers

Roughly one-fifth of all accidents here in Texas involve a Motorcycle

More than 60 percent of the time a Motorcycle is involved in an accident, is not the fault of the biker

Things that can cause motorcycle wrecks in Texas include reckless driving, distracted driving, drunk driving, mechanical issues, lane changes without looking, and so on. If you or a loved one suffered an injury or even death as a result of being involved in a motorcycle accident, know your rights? If you lost a loved one due to a motorcycle wreck are you aware of the legal options you have in order to see that justice is served against the negligent parties? The motorcycle accident attorneys of our law firm have provided you with information in the following article regarding your rights after suffering a motorcycle or bike crash in Texas. Our attorneys bring you more than 25 years of proven experience in Texas personal injury and wrongful death cases so that they can guide you and help you in this challenging and difficult time of your life.

Motorcycle Accidents vs. Car Wrecks

There are many differences when it comes to motorcycle accidents or car wrecks. The major difference is that motorcycle wrecks usually result in more severe personal injury and a greater chance of death. In fact, the Texas Department of Transportation reports that two-thirds of all motorcycle accidents result in serious injury or death of the motorcyclist.

According to data from the Texas Department of Transportation, in 2018 there were 418 fatal motorcycle crashes and wrecks which made up for 16 percent of all traffic fatalities in the state that year. In addition, around 6,913 motorcycle riders or passengers also suffered injuries in 2018. The reason motorcycle accidents are one of the most devastating injuries a person can experience in life is because of the lack of safety features on a motorcycle. A motorcycle by its very own nature and construction does not provide an outer shield like a regular car does in order to protect the passenger if an accident or collision occurs. Regular passenger vehicles are made with an outer shield and element that protects the driver from outside elements and forces. When a collision occurs in a regular passenger vehicle, the car’s outer shield protects the driver from being ejected from the vehicle. However, motorcycles do not have this outer shield, so when an accident, collision, or wreck occurs, the motorcycle rider and passenger can be ejected from the motorcycle and fall hard to the ground, causing serious injury or even death immediately. It does not matter what type of motorcycle you have, all brands are the same. Even the best-built ones such as Ducati, Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, Yamaha, Harley-Davidson, Buell, Triumph, and other brands and other types of motorcycle manufacturers do not have the capability of providing the protection needed for its passengers and therefore cannot prevent severe injuries from occurring even if the wreck is minor. Without the outer frame, motorcycles in themselves pose a threat.

You should always consult with our attorneys for any Injury accidents. Motorcycle accidents and wrecks pose such a great risk for injury and death. Here it makes only sense, that the first thing after a bike accident injury is calling our motorcycle accident law firm. There is so much money and high dollar amounts at stake because of the severity of injuries or deaths associated with these types of accidents that an experienced lawyer is always needed to help settle the case. In fact, insurance companies will fight to the fullest degree in order to deny claims or offer the least amount of money to the motorcycle victims and their bereaved family members so that they can save their company money. If you do not have any legal assistance from our experienced motorcycle accident attorneys, your case might be in trouble. Also, without any legal assistance, a motorcycle accident victim will more than likely be taken advantage of by an insurance company who could care less about the accident victim. An insurance company’s main goal is to save their company money by denying claims or settling for the least amount of money available when it comes to auto accidents. They are only after their own interests and not the accident victim. Insurance companies are not bothered by your pain, loss or suffering. They only see dollar signs.

Dallas Motorcycle Injury Accidents

When you are involved in a motorcycle accident in Texas, you might come across all types of injuries. Injuries can range from minor to severe, depending on the collision. Minor injuries can range from bruises to scratches. However, you might also face life-altering injuries as well. Life-threatening injuries can include things such as traumatic brain injuries to damaging spinal cord injuries.

In addition, another common type of injury in motorcycle accidents is injuries involving road rash. Road rash injuries can be initially minor, however, if not treated properly or in time, road rash injuries can turn into a severe infection. It is very critical that a person who develops a road rash injury as a result of their motorcycle accident get the proper medical attention they need as quickly as possible so that their case cannot suffer from a failure to mitigate damages. For example, if a person experiences road rash and does not treat it on time, then that person cannot seek compensation from the liable parties involved in the motorcycle accident in the event that the victim’s road rash worsens and turns into an infection, which costs a lot of money. The victim’s failure to seek medical treatment in the correct time frame when faced with a road rash injury exonerates the defendants from having to pay for this type of injury.

Another area that motorcycle accident victims might have to deal with is the chance of losing one of their limbs. They might have to have their leg or arm amputated because of the accident. Needless to say this will greatly diminish a person’s quality of life. In summary, the injuries associated with a motorcycle accident can leave lasting scars, emotional trauma, and cause emotional stress for the victim and his or her family. If you or a loved one is in this situation, your best option is to seek a personal injury lawsuit in Texas so that your family can start to heal and overcome the pain associated with your injury or loss. By pursuing a motorcycle accident claim, you stand a better chance to receive compensation for any and all losses and damages.

In Texas, there are laws in place that try to protect a motorcycle rider and a passenger. The law in Texas requires those less than 21 years of age to wear a helmet when operating a motorcycle and also if one is a passenger in a motorcycle. Anyone who is 21 years or older has the option of wearing a helmet if they have taken a Texas motorcycle rider training course or can show proof of health insurance. There are still debates today about the safety and effectiveness of wearing a motorcycle helmet for motorcycle riders and passengers. Despite the debates that still go on to this day, no one can refute or argue with the fact that a safety helmet can prevent serious injuries from happening. Even the most severe of injuries such as spinal cord injuries or traumatic brain injuries could in some cases be prevented by just wearing a helmet. These injuries can cause paralysis and also cause life-altering medical conditions for the accident victim. These life-altering injuries also require medical care 24 hours a day 7 days a week. The costs associated with brain injuries or spinal cord injuries are high as well.

You never know how long your recovery from the motorcycle accident will take. It might take a motorcycle accident victim one day, one week, several months, or years to recover from an injury. Because of this uncertainty, the costs associated with this type of accident can skyrocket. Medical bills and costs can range anywhere from thousands to millions of dollars. Because of the high costs associated with a motorcycle accident, insurance companies will fight even harder to deny your claim or offer you a lowball amount of money. If you do not have any legal assistance to help you with your case, then you might end up hurting your case because the insurance company knows they can take advantage of you for your lack of knowledge. When you partner with the motorcycle accident lawyers of our firm, our team will stand by your side and aggressively defend your rights by fighting for you to get the maximum amount of compensation you deserve.

Wearing a Helmet vs Not Wearing a Helmet

The majority of deaths from motorcycle accidents happens to riders without helmets. as a matter of fact it’s 53%. Under Texas Law you are not compelled to wear a helmet if you are 21 and older and have medical insurance. It’s kind of bone-headed not to wear one when riding, having medical insurance or not when you are dead from a motorcycle accident.

Fatal Motorcycle Accidents in Texas

According to the Texas Department of Transportation, a fatal motorcycle accident in Texas occurs every day. This sad fact can be looked at in many different ways. For example, this also means that one family a day in Texas can lose a loved one in or another city in Texas to a motorcycle accident. The attorneys in our firm can get to the heart of the matter by finding out who and what caused your loved one to lose their life in a motorcycle accident. The motorcycle lawyers of our firm take extra steps to help our clients. We do this by conducting in-depth investigations into motorcycle accident scene cases. With our ability to conduct thorough investigations, our attorneys have the ability to identify all negligent parties involved with your loved one’s loss and bring them to justice for their role and negligence in the motorcycle accident. A bereaved family has the right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against all negligent parties who contributed to your loved one’s death. The bereaved family has the right to seek damages by pursuing a wrongful death damages case and a survival damages case.

There are also differences between survival damages and wrongful death damages. In a survival damages case, only one family member can pursue legal damages against the defendant. However, in a wrongful death damages case, more than one family member can seek financial compensation for the financial hardship they have to deal with as a result of losing their loved one. The main reason why family members pursue damages is not solely for the money, but for the ability to seek justice and hold the negligent party accountable for their reckless behavior that led to your loved one’s loss. At our law firm, we know that seeking compensation is an important part of recovering from an accident that leads to severe personal injury or death. However, it is more important in a wrongful death lawsuit that the liable parties are brought to justice. If your family has suffered tragedy through a motorcycle accident, the first step you need to do is contact a fatal motorcycle accident attorney. When you contact a motorcycle accident attorney such as the ones in our firm, our legal team will immediately get to the accident scene and start conducting an extensive investigation into the accident scene. By doing this, we are able to find all the negligent parties involved in the accident. After we identify who all was involved or contributed to your loved one’s death, we then inform the bereaved family, who then is able to proceed with a lawsuit against all the negligent parties. The motorcycle accident attorneys of our Law Offices have 25 years of experience investigating all types of auto accident scene cases. Our attorneys’ background, experience, and skills in conducting in-depth investigations into the cause of fatal auto accidents is what sets our firm apart from the rest. Our attorneys are able to discover all negligent parties who contributed to your loved one’s loss as well. Through our collaborative efforts, we know who to find and who to pinpoint for being reckless and negligent.

What You Should Do After a Dallas Motorcycle Accident

If you have been severely injured, someone who witnessed the accident is compelled to call 911 and call EMS and police. Depending on the injuries the ambulance will take you to the nearest trauma center. If a helicopter needs to be dispatched the EMS technicians will do so.

Otherwise, if you are able to take pictures of the accident scene and the names of witnesses, do so!

If you were hospitalized, friends or family should take care of the aftermath. The insurance will contact you, yours, and the opponents. The adjuster from the party who caused the accident will likely try you to sign papers in hurry. Be polite, but decline to do so.

Also be hush about the details of the accident to others, whatever you say can be held against you by the opponents’ insurance attorneys. It could lead to the minimized recovery of compensation.

Call Our Experienced Motorcycle Accident Attorneys for a non-binding case evaluation.

We aggressively pursue the opponent’s insurance company to make sure that your monetary settlement will cover any and all past and future expenses related to the accident, including lost income and compensation for pain and suffering.
