"What are the common causes of motorcycle accidents in Texas?" Get the facts
According to studies, 30 percent of motorcycle wrecks are caused by a driver who failed to see the bike. Other ways a motorcycle crash can happen can be traced back to negligence by the other driver, road defects or motorcycle defects. There are many ways an accident can happen, but insurance companies may try to blame the motorcycle rider even when someone else's carelessness caused the accident.
Common motorcycle accident causes include the following:
- Car or truck moves into motorcyclist's right of way.
- A driver is distracted in some form (sending text messages or driving under the influence of alcohol, for example).
- Reckless driving or speeding by another motorist.
- Road defects, such as bumps, potholes, gashes, loose gravel or debris.
- Motorcycle defects such as malfunctioning brakes or tires.
Studies have found that motorcyclists are 27 times more likely to die in an accident than occupants of other motor vehicles and five times more likely to be injured. Too much is at stake in a motorcycle accident. If you lost a loved one in a motorcycle wreck, or were seriously injured due to negligence, it's important to retain a qualified attorney who can protect your rights.
