Car Accidents & Motorcycle Accidents
Were You Seriously Injured In A Car Accident?
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), although Americans drove less in 2020 due to the pandemic, close to 39,000 people were killed in car crashes with millions more injured due to crashes every year. The serious injuries that occur in these crashes far too often result in considerable medical bills and can even restrict the victim’s ability to resume employment following their recovery. No matter where you were at the time of the crash, whether you were riding on a bicycle, walking on the sidewalk, in a car, etc., if someone else’s negligent actions resulted in your injury, you should be able to fight for your rights and secure the compensation you deserve.

Determining Who Is Responsible
Motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of personal injury claims in the United States, and millions of people are hurt or even killed due to serious driver error, negligence, or distraction. Some other factors include:
- Poor road conditions
- Bad weather
- Defective or dangerous vehicle parts
- Poor visibility
Determining who is responsible, whether it is another driver or multiple drivers, the road design, or anything else is a key part of the legal process. We will work with you to recreate the events leading up to the crash in order to learn which parties are responsible and put together a plan of action that best suits your needs.
According to the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), around 420,000 motorcycles are registered in the state of Texas. As popular as these vehicles are, they can also be incredibly dangerous. According to TxDOT, over 9,000 people were involved in a motorcycle crash in 2015 alone, and more than 84 percent of these people suffered some type of injury, and over 25 percent were either killed or suffered a serious injury.
Motorcycle riders don’t have the same level of protection as people who drive cars, and as a result, are at a far greater risk of injury. If your injuries were caused by someone else’s actions, you deserve the chance to file a lawsuit to recover the compensation you need to cover any damages you may have incurred. At Fleming, Nolen & Jez, our motorcycle accident attorneys have dedicated their careers to providing our clients with knowledgeable and passionate legal representation, and through their efforts, we have successfully recovered verdict awards and monetary compensation for our clients.

Who Was At Fault?
Determining who was at fault is a key part of proving liability in a crash. In many cases, motorcycle accidents are caused by negligence or wrongdoing by another driver who failed to notice the oncoming motorcycle or the motorcycle in the lane next to them. If you were involved in one of these crashes, it’s important to seek medical attention immediately both to ensure that you’re okay and also to accurately note any injuries directly caused by the crash. The longer you wait, the more difficult it may be to prove that your injuries were directly caused by the accident, and the harder it will be to secure compensation to cover those medical bills. It’s important to find experienced legal representation for a car accident or motorcycle accident.
