Fatal Motorcycle Accidents in Texas
Motorcycle accidents take the lives of more than 400 people each year in the state of Texas. These victims, like pedestrians, remain relatively unprotected during crashes. As a result, they are more likely to suffer severe injuries in accidents with other vehicles.
When victims lose their lives in accidents, surviving family members often have to spend tens of thousands of dollars on funeral expenses, deal with lost earnings, and are overcome by the mental and financial consequences that continue to compound.
