Motorcycle Crashes in Texas
In terms of motorcycle injuries and fatalities, Texas is among the top states in the nation. This is because we have a sizable riding population and miles and miles of routes. Texas is one of the states with the most fatal motorcycle collisions. In the state, there were more than 68,000 crashes involving motorcycles between 2010 and 2017. In Texas, fatal motorcycle accidents occurred in around 5% of cases, and more than 50% of those fatalities involved helmet use.
It is understandable that while dealing with the overwhelming laundry list of issues to attend to, from trying to figure out how to pay the medical costs you got as a result of your motorcycle accident to repairing or replacing your vehicle, talking with a lawyer about your case may not be top of mind. You should not wait to retain an aggressive legal team because, unfortunately for Texas, severe regulations have been put in place that limits the amount of time you have to file a claim.
