Fatal Auto Accidents in Texas
Each year, more than 4000 people lose their lives in motor vehicle accidents in the state of Texas. Hundreds of people involved in these fatal accidents are using motorcycles. People who are riding motorcycles are without protection against the impact of other vehicles. As a result, they are more likely to suffer severe and fatal injuries in accidents.
Every year, we see countless people lose their lives in accidents due to the negligence of others. Some of the leading causes of fatal motorcycle accidents in our state include:
- Drivers who switch lanes without looking
- Drivers who are speeding are traveling well above the posted speed limit
- Drivers who engage in reckless actions operating their vehicles
- Drivers who fail to yield the right of way to motorcyclists
When people engage in negligent actions while operating their vehicles, they place the lives of others at risk of being severely harmed.
