Experienced Motorcycle Accident Attorneys in San Antonio, Texas
Were You Injured In A Motorcycle Accident in San Antonio?
At the Hollingsworth Law Firm, our San Antonio motorcycle accident attorneys know that ours is one of many Texas cities that invites both local and visiting riders from around the country to enjoy numerous routes ideal for motorcycle journeys.
Bexar, Comal, and Medina Counties are home to many of the city’s scenic motorcycle routes, including the San Antonio Loop Around, the Gruene-Fredericksburg Bandera Loop, and the Twisted Sisters Route, a collection of three different Hill Country Ranch roads culminating into a 100-mile loop made for both new and long-time bikers.
While responsible riders are enjoying highways, city, and scenic routes, other motorists may not respect their rights to the road, including negligent drivers who avoid checking their surroundings before switching lanes. Others, unfortunately, are unable to gauge the speed and distance motorcycles are traveling, and turn in front of the riders, causing them to collide with the side of the vehicle. Unfortunately, 42% of all fatal motorcycle crashes involved a vehicle turning left while the motorcycle was going straight last year alone. This means these crashes and fatalities were 100% preventable if the motorist had simply yielded the right of way to the motorcyclist.
If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident in Texas because of another driver’s negligence, our San Antonio personal injury lawyers will help you understand how we can pursue the negligent driver for your full compensation needs, so you can take back control of your life.
Our skilled legal staff offers services in English, Spanish, Portuguese, and Mandarin because we believe in inclusion, fairness, and justice. It is only possible to successfully represent the people in our communities when we can successfully represent all people.

Why Are So Many Motorcycle Accidents Occurring on Texas Roadways?
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety reported nearly 381,000 motorcycles were registered in Texas last year. Over the same time, the Texas Department of Transportation reported nearly 7,500 motorcycle crashes, 2,300 serious injuries, and 521 fatalities — a 7% increase over the previous year.
Unfortunately, as is the case with most traffic collisions in Texas, most of these crashes, injuries, and deaths were preventable.
Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents in San Antonio include, but are not limited to:
- Motorists Turning Left in Front of Oncoming Motorcyclists
- Rear-End Collisions from Traveling too Close to Riders
- Drivers Changing Lanes Without Checking their Surroundings
- Head-On Collisions
- Distracted Driving
- Impaired Driving
On average, at least one motorcycle rider dies every day in a crash on Texas streets and highways. At the Hollingsworth Law Firm, our San Antonio motorcycle accident lawyers know these individuals are someone’s spouse, parent, sibling, child, or another beloved family member or friend who deserves justice after negligence has injured them or taken their lives.

Can I Pursue Financial Recovery from a Negligent Driver if I Was Not Wearing a Helmet?
All riders and passengers under the age of 21 must wear a helmet while traveling by motorcycle, according to the Texas Department of Transportation.
All motorcyclists are encouraged to wear a helmet for safety, as 45% of riders who were killed last year were not wearing helmets at the time of the crash. If you are over 21 and meet an eligible helmet exemption, your accident and injury claim should not be impacted by your decision not to wear a helmet.
