Fatal Motorcycle Accidents in Texas
Motorcycle crashes in Texas are the cause of hundreds of deaths each year. In our state, the majority of wrongful death claims stem from three main types of negligence. These include:
- Defective parts: Although it is less common, there have been cases where defective motorcycle parts have caused accidents that resulted in death. If this is the case, then the victim’s family may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the manufacturer of the defective part.
- Driver errors: The vast majority of motorcycle accidents are caused by driver errors. This can include anything from distracted driving to speeding to simply not paying attention. If a driver is at fault for causing a fatal motorcycle accident, the victim’s family may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit against them.
- Poor road conditions: Sometimes, even if a driver is being careful, they can’t avoid an accident if the road conditions are poor. This could be due to something like potholes, debris in the road, or even bad weather conditions. If poor road conditions played a role in causing a fatal motorcycle accident, the victim’s family may be able to hold the responsible party (usually the government agency responsible for maintaining the roadway) accountable by filing a wrongful death lawsuit.
