More and more people are discovering the fun of riding sports bikes, and with more and more sports bikes on the road, sports bike accidents are becoming more prevalent. Sports bikes are lightweight and fairly easy to maneuver, which is the main reason that their popularity is soaring. However, accidents involving sports bikes can be quite serious. Sports bikes are much lighter than motorcycles, so there is usually even more damage to the rider when a car or other object collides with them on the roadway. If you or someone you love has been injured in a sports bike accident, the Law Office of Dorothy Hyde has the experience you need to get the compensation you deserve for your injuries. We have helped thousands of accident victims get their lives back on track in the wake of catastrophic injuries.
The biggest question after a sports bike accident is invariably, who’s to blame? Oftentimes the at-fault party will try to cast the shadow of blame onto the rider—and while it is sometimes true that a rider may be at fault, that’s generally the exception, not the rule. Cyclists get little respect on the roadway, and drivers of passenger vehicles are often distracted and not on the lookout for smaller vehicles like sports bikes or motorcycles. This is a recipe for disaster, and one that can lead to significant injuries that impact your life forever.
Typically, sports bike accidents result from:
When someone’s careless, reckless or negligent behavior results in your sports bike accident, you have grounds to sue them to hold them accountable for their actions. Filing a claim begins the process, which sometimes ends in negotiation if a settlement that is fair can be reached but may continue until your attorney litigates the case in court.
Depending on your injuries, you may be able to collect damages from the at-fault party in the form of your medical bills, future costs of medical care, lost wages, future income loss, and pain and suffering. In the case of particularly grievous or malicious behavior resulting in your injuries, a judge may also see fit to award punitive damages.
Don’t delay filing your claim following your sports bike accident. In Texas, you have just two years from the date of your injury to file. After that time, your claim may be barred under Texas’ statute of limitations. Reach out to Dorothy Hyde, Dallas motorcycle accident attorney for a free case consultation now.

After I was severely injured, I didn’t know what to do next. One of my colleagues recommended reaching out to Dorothy for representation. When I finally did, I didn’t regret my decision — I received tremendous support and she treated me like family. She brought the best outcome and I’m amazed at the passion she brings into her work. I would recommend her services without any reservation.
I’ve always known that I needed an insurance policy to protect me if I got into a car accident. But when I got involved in a car crash, I realized how important it is to have a lawyer protect me from my insurance company! This firm settled my case really quickly and delivered excellent results. Dottie secured a fair and equitable settlement, and I’d recommend her to anyone in need of good counsel and representation.
Thank you for bringing my claim against the construction company to a successful conclusion. You made the process less intimidating and made me feel like the struggle I had to endure was valid. It has helped me cope with a lot of post-accident challenges differently. You were more than I expected — thanks again.
