Fatal Motorcycle Accidents in Texas
Every year, hundreds of people lose their lives in motorcycle crashes in the state of Texas. These travelers are far more vulnerable during crashes due to the fact that they often have little more than helmets to protect them during accidents. In fact, studies show that motorcyclists are more than 25-times more likely to suffer severe and fatal injuries in auto wrecks when compared to other motorists.
Nearly 80% of crashes in our state can be attributed to some form of negligence. Some of the most common factors associated with truck accidents include:
- Driving while impaired
- Driving while distracted
- Blindspot accidents
- Drowsy driving
- Engaging in reckless driving behaviors
When victims lose their lives in crashes due to these and other negligent, reckless, and malicious actions, their families may have legal options available to help them get justice.
