El Paso motorcycle accidents call for tough-minded representation
A motorcycle accident in El Paso can happen in an instant. Unlike occupants of cars who are involved in an accident, a motorcyclist has little protecting them from severe or even fatal motorcycle accident injuries.

At the Law Offices of Michael J. Gopin, PC, P.C., we have the experience and resources motorcycle accident victims need to pursue the justice they deserve. Before you accept any settlement with the insurance company, contact our firm at 1-800-WIN-WIN-1 or 915-532-1111. You may be entitled to more financial compensation than the insurance company is offering. Tell them you mean business.
Texas helmet law for motorcycle riders
Texas law requires riders who are 20 years old and younger to wear helmets. Those who are 21 and older have the option. Helmets reduce the risk of traumatic brain injuries and other head injuries. It’s prudent to wear a helmet. A study found that motorcycle fatalities in Texas increased after the state repealed its mandatory helmet law in 1997.
The risks for motorcyclists are ever present, even for those who wear helmets and durable clothing. It’s not uncommon for a driver to change lanes without “seeing” the motorcycle. The biker may get sideswiped and thrown from the motorcycle, possibly sustaining a spinal cord injury or road rash from sliding along the ground at a high rate of speed.
