San Antonio Drunk Driving Motorcycle Accident Attorney
Because alcohol inhibits your ability to think and act rationally, it can lead to some of the most severe and devastating traffic accidents. One of the worst realities of drunk driving accidents is that the innocent drivers and passengers are often the ones who experience the worst and most life-altering injuries. This is almost always true for motorcyclists who are completely exposed to the devastating consequences of a traffic accident but without any protective barrier surrounding them like a driver or passenger inside a vehicle. Along with massive repair bills to your bike, the medical expenses can be upwards of tens of thousands of dollars, leaving victims wondering how they can afford to pay for them and move on with their lives.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident caused by a drunk driver, we are here to tell you that you’re not alone. You need financial compensation to help you pay for the piles of medical bills and wages lost because you had to miss work.

Drunk Driver Motorcycle Accidents
The San Antonio car accident lawyers know how truly devastating and life-altering drunk driving accidents are, and we take the issue very seriously. Along with doing everything possible to hold the driver accountable for his or her thoughtless and negligent actions, in many cases we can also hold other parties liable like bars or restaurants for over-serving the individual and letting the driver leave the premises behind the wheel of a car.
Motorcycle accident claims can be extremely complicated and nuanced, especially when dealing with insurance companies. That’s why you need a professional, highly-skilled, and experienced motorcycle accident lawyer by your side every step of the way. When we reach your final settlement, the San Antonio motorcycle accident lawyers take into account not only your present bills and financial needs but also your future needs due to lost wages or rehabilitation costs. And while every case is unique, here are a number of items you may be able to receive compensation for following a drunk driving motorcycle accident:
- Current and future medical expenses including surgeries and basic care
- Lost wages or income from missing work
- Lost earning capacity
- Repairing or replacing your motorcycle
- Emotional trauma
- Plastic surgery
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Caregiver expenses if you can no longer take care of yourself
- Transportation expenses if you can no longer drive
Because drunk driving accidents are often viewed as egregiously negligent, there are some cases where the victim may be awarded punitive damages if the jury or judge sees fit. At the Chris Mayo Law Firm, we will fight for every dollar you deserve so you can avoid financial ruin and take the first steps to moving on with your life.
Frequently Asked Questions
When drunk driving motorcycle accidents happen, victims face a whirlwind of information and decisions that have a life-altering impact on their lives. Because most victims have never been in an accident or worked with a personal injury lawyer before, they have questions about their rights and the legal process. These are the answers to a few of the questions we hear frequently.
Won’t I get financial compensation if the driver is convicted of a DWI?
A lot of drunk driving accident victims think that they will receive compensation if the driver is convicted of a DWI. Unfortunately, DWI convictions do not automatically result in compensation for damages and injuries you suffered. And while a criminal conviction can be used as evidence in your case and will result in consequences for the driver, it does not address the financial and emotional burden the accident has inflicted on you. That’s why you need to file a civil personal injury claim to sue for damages.
Can’t I just settle my case with the driver’s insurance company?
Even if you were not at fault and the negligent driver was intoxicated at the time of the accident, simply settling your case with the driver’s insurance company can be extremely complicated and may result in less money than you deserve. Insurance companies are for-profit businesses and want to pay you as little as possible. That’s why you need an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer to handle your case so you can focus on the most important thing, your recovery.
