Texas Motorcycle Accidents
Drivers on motorcycles are at an extreme disadvantage in collisions with larger vehicles on the roadway. Unfortunately, over 500 people lose their lives each year across Texas in motorcycle accidents while thousands of others sustain serious injuries.
Motorcycles may be rejuvenating to drive, but driving them can turn into a very dangerous situation quickly. This is especially true when motorcyclists share roadways in Texas with reckless and negligent drivers.
