There are many motorcycle enthusiasts in and around the Dallas area. While these vehicles can be fun to operate, riders and passengers often sustain serious injuries when an accident occurs. If you or loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident that was caused by the negligent actions of another driver, contact Johnson, Zegen, Scott & Williams, PLLC today. Our Dallas motorcycle accident attorneys will investigate your case and work to secure any compensation you are entitled to.

At Johnson, Zegen, Scott & Williams, PLLC, we know that motorcycle accidents have many of the same causes as other traffic incidents in the Dallas area. However, we also know that vehicle drivers often fail to give motorcyclists the respect and space they need on the roadway. Of particular concern in these cases are vehicle drivers who are distracted by their phones or are impaired by alcohol or drugs.
Motorcyclists are also more at risk than other drivers to roadway defects and obstacles on the roadway. If the agencies responsible for roadway maintenance do not properly do their job, including state, county, and municipal authorities, they could be held liable for injuries that a motorcyclist sustains in a crash.

At Johnson, Zegen, Scott & Williams, PLLC, we pledge to investigate every aspect of this crash and work to secure the compensation you need. This can include:
