Risks Associated With Motorcycles
The state of Texas takes motorcycle safety seriously. Texas has been taking significant measures to reduce the risks of motorcyclist injuries, including a helmet requirement or a motorcycle safety course and adequate health insurance coverage for bikers under 21.
In spite of these efforts, motorcycle wrecks and injuries are common. In 2007 alone, motorcyclists were 37 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a motor vehicle traffic crash and nine times more likely to be injured. In 2008, in the United States, 5,290 motorcyclists were killed and another 96,000 injured in motor vehicle wrecks.*
- Driver negligence — when other drivers fail to see a motorcyclist, drive under the influence or drive recklessly
- Weather — wet roads, fog and other weather conditions
- Manufacturing or design defects — malfunctioning brakes, faulty tires and negligent design features that increase accident risks
“Whatever the cause of your motorcycle wreck, we will find it. Through bringing a claim against the other driver, pursuing an insurance claim or pursuing any other means necessary, we will help you obtain the compensation you deserve.”
