The Support System You Need After a Motorcycle Crash

Motorcycles, while enjoyable to ride, don't offer the same protection as other motor vehicles. They leave riders vulnerable to serious and catastrophic injuries after violent collisions with larger vehicles, often leaving victims to bear the burden of staggering hospital bills, long-term care costs, disabling injuries or worse — grief over the loss of a loved one.

We know crashes aren't always the fault of the rider, but drivers of larger vehicles will say anything to avoid paying more on their insurance, including blaming riders for crashes instead of admitting their own negligence.

At Salam & Associates, PC, we stand up for injured motorcyclists and their families to protect their reputation and rights. Our clients are never alone in the fight to hold at-fault parties accountable for their actions. From offices in Richardson, we serve throughout Texas and New Mexico. We can also arrange to meet in our Las Cruces location (by appointment only).

  • Changing lanes without looking
  • Driving while fatigued
  • Speeding
  • Driving recklessly

  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Swerving into other lanes without warning

Even if the accident is caused by someone else's negligence, it's the motorcyclist or his or her family that is most affected by the collision. A motorcyclist may be thrown from the bike, run over or crushed by another vehicle, which can lead to:
