MOTORCYCLIST INJURED IN HIT AND RUN AT INTERSECTION IN AUSTIN, TEXAS
Our client was riding his motorcycle northbound on Pond Springs Road in Austin, Texas. At the same time, the defendant traveling westbound on San Felipe Boulevard was approaching a T-intersection with Pond Springs Road.
As the defendant approached the intersection, she was faced with a stop sign. Our client neared the T-intersection and did not have any traffic signal instructing him to stop or slow down, so he continued to proceed northbound.
As our client proceeded, the defendant did not yield the right-of-way to our client and pulled out in front of him, causing the collision.
The collision caused our client to flip and roll over the defendant’s vehicle for approximately 40 yards to the north of Pond Springs Road. The defendant proceeded to drive away without speaking to our client or exchanging any information – essentially, it was a hit and run.
After identifying the defendant, the case proceeded to litigation and was settled in favor of our client. Our attorney argued that the collision was caused because the defendant:
- failed to yield the right-of-way when turning left;
- maintained an unsafe distance from other vehicles;
- kept an improper lookout;
- made an untimely and improper application of her brakes;
- exhibited inadequate driver attention;
- was driving distracted;
- took importer evasive actions to avoid the collision;
- failed to stop and render aid;
- fled the scene of a wreck; and
- chose to violate safety rules.
This case settled in litigation, and our client received compensation for:
- medical expenses – past and future;
- pain and suffering – past and future;
- physical impairment – past and future;
- physical disfigurement;
- lost wages; and
- lost of past and future earning capacity

Frequently Asked Questions
Below are some frequently asked questions related to motorcycle accidents.
Q: Why should I contact a motorcycle accident lawyer?
A: It may be difficult for an individual to seek the compensation they may be entitled to without the help of an experienced lawyer. When you seek compensation without a lawyer, you face negotiations with an insurance company that will want to settle quickly and for as little as possible. This may mean that you could end up with less compensation than you deserve.
With a lawyer by your side, you may be in a stronger position to have the most persuasive case possible and seek the compensation to which you may be entitled. Moreover, you can do so while focusing on what’s important – your recovery!
Q: What compensation can I seek?
A: If you were injured in an accident, the compensation you may be entitled to can include:
- medical expenses;
- future medical expenses;
- lost wages;
- future lost wages;
- loss of future earning capacity; and
- pain and suffering and emotional distress.
As this is not a definitive list, speak with an attorney to find out more about the compensation to which you may be entitled.
