Motorcycle Traffic Accidents

Motorcycle accidents are no more frequent than auto accidents, but they are more likely to result in fatalities or serious injuries. Between 3,000 and 5,000 motorcyclists are killed every year in the U.S. As much as 10% of those fatalities occur in Texas, which is home to over 400,000 motorcyclists. Wearing a helmet can prevent many devastating brain and spinal cord injuries, but the motorcyclists limbs and organs are still vulnerable to trauma. In the shock of a collision, some injuries may not be apparent until later.

The majority of motorcycle accidents happen at intersections and on major city roads, not highways. High performance motorcyclists, like Sport and Supersport riders, have the highest accident rates. Still, conventional motorcyclists face a high risk of personal injury. Motorbikes can be difficult to see behind other vehicles, and can easily end up in an automobile’s blind spot. Statistically, most motorcycle collisions are the fault of car, van, or truck driver. On the other hand, motorcyclists are more likely than drivers to speed, or be caught without a valid license.

Common Causes of Motorcycle and Automobile Accidents:

  • Head-on Collisions between a car and motorcycle account for an astounding half of motorcycle accident deaths.
  • Vehicles making a left-hand turn commonly strike motorcyclists passing through an intersection, or attempting to pass a car.
  • Lane-Splitting is when a motorcycle drives between two lanes of cars, usually stopped or slowed. This is a risky move for motorcyclists because they have very little space to maneuver, and drivers aren’t always on the lookout.
  • Drinking and Riding: More intoxicated motorcyclists than drivers end up in serious accidents.
  • Road hazards, such as rain, slick icy roads, pot holes, or fallen objects pose a threat to everyone on the road, but motorcyclists are in greater danger of spinning out in front of traffic, or being thrown from their bike.

Texas Motorcycle Accident Law: Who is to Blame?

The average fatal motorcycle accident has a price tag of $1.2 million. Rider injuries can cost between several thousand and several million dollars. To successfully win a motorcycle accident claim in Texas, you need to prove the other driver was negligent. Texas law requires motorcycles to be equipped with specific features, like mirrors, reflectors, and tail lights. It also requires all riders and passengers wear a helmet unless carrying proof of rider training or motorcycle accident insurance. Regardless of who is at fault in a motorcycle traffic accident, it is imperative that you seek legal assistant as soon as possible. An experienced lawyer is your best bet if you hope to recover medical costs, loss of wages, and other damages.
