Fatal Motorcycle Accidents in Texas
Motorcycle accidents in the state of Texas take the lives of more than 450 people every year. These accidents are often caused by drivers who are speeding, distracted, or engaging in other negligent actions while operating their vehicles.
These accidents are often preventable. However, we continue to see victims lose their lives due to the actions of others. Motorcycle accidents can often be contributed to some form of negligence. In fact, nearly 80% of accidents in our state are due to driver error. Some leading causes of collisions we see each year include:
- Driving recklessly
- Using cell phones to talk or text while driving
- Driving while impaired by drugs or alcohol
- Eating while operating vehicles
If your family has been impacted by a fatal motor vehicle accident, chances are that you will deal with more than just emotional pain and suffering.
