Motorcycle Accident Lawyer in Katy
We Represent Injured Motorcyclists
A motorcycle can be a fun and exhilarating way of experiencing long stretches
of highways throughout Texas, but it can also be a risky way to travel.
Due to their slimmer profile and shorter stature, motorcycle riders aren’t
always noticed by inattentive or distracted drivers of other vehicles.
If you were a motorcyclist who was injured in an accident caused by someone
else’s negligence or recklessness, the Law Office of Shane McClelland’s
motorcycle accident attorney in Katy can help you see the fair and just
financial compensation you deserve.

How Most Motorcycle Accidents in Texas Happen
In addition to the size of their vehicles, motorcyclists are at a greater
risk of injury from collisions with other vehicles because of how exposed
they are to their surroundings. Unlike in a car or truck, motorcycle riders
don’t have airbags to protect them. At most, riders may only have
their helmets, thick clothing, and other optional protective padding.
As a motorcyclist, you’re more than likely very aware of how vulnerable
you are in an accident – especially if you’ve already been
in one. Inattentive and negligent drivers of other vehicles are often
the underlying cause of accidents involving motorcycles, but accidents
can occur for various reasons.
Motorcycle accidents are often caused by drivers who:
- Turn directly in the path of a motorcycle
- Pull into traffic in front of a motorcyclist from a driveway or parking lot
- Are talking on cell phones
- Fail to yield at an intersection
- Run a stop sign or red light
- Are not paying attention when passing a motorcycle
- Are driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
Any of these events can pose a significant risk of catastrophic injury
to the motorcyclist. Our motorcycle accidents attorney in Katy, Shane
McClelland, has many years of experience helping these accident victims
seek the fair and just compensation they deserve from at-fault drivers
and their insurance companies.
Seek the Compensation You Deserve
Motorcyclists have the same right to the road as any other driver. When
another driver is negligent and causes an accident, you also have the
right to seek compensation for your injuries.
You may be entitled to substantial financial compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Property damage
- Lost wages and income
- Physical pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
