Texas Motorcycle Accident Attorney
Were you injured in a motorcycle accident?
While there are many advantages to motorcycle transportation, such as efficiency and ease of travel, however there are also a number of safety hazards that riders should be aware of.
According to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) 4,586 people died in motorcycle crashes in 2014.
Motorcyclists are 27 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a crash per vehicle mile traveled, and almost five times more likely to be injured.
Types of Motorcycle Accidents
There are many different ways that motorcycle accidents can arise. Typically, the main cause of a motorcycle accident is that of distracted driving by other vehicles on the road. Rear-end collisions to motorcyclists can cause much more severe damage than when this occurs with a vehicle of another kind. Sudden lane changes and U-turns by drivers of cars can occur suddenly and without warning or concern for a motorcyclist.
Our attorneys understand that passenger vehicles often view motorcyclists differently than they do other vehicles, and often times don’t respect the motorcycle’s position on the roadways. This can lead to a motorcycle accident that can result in serious injury, and even death.
