Fatal Motorcycle Accidents in Texas
Vehicle accidents can take place suddenly and have an overwhelming impact on the lives of those involved. Unfortunately, thousands of innocent people are fatally injured in auto accidents in Texas each year. Hundreds of people are using motorcycles at the time of their accidents.
Motorcyclists are more vulnerable to suffering significant injuries due to the fact that they have no protection during accidents. Unfortunately, we see many motorcyclists suffer severe and fatal injuries due to drivers who are negligent.
Some common causes of motorcycle accidents in our state include:
- impaired motorists sharing the roadway
- distracted drivers who are operating their vehicles without paying attention to the road ahead
- drivers who are speeding or traveling too fast for road conditions and weather
