Fatal Motorcycle Accidents in Texas

Each year, more than 450 motorcyclists lose their lives in auto accidents across the state of Texas. 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:

  • Speeding
  • Driving recklessly
  • Using cell phones to talk or text while driving
  • Driving while impaired by drugs or alcohol
