Motorcycle Accidents in Texas
According to recent studies, about 501 motorcyclists lost their lives in motorcycle accidents in Texas in 2017. Most of these accidents are caused by drivers not paying attention to their surroundings, especially when it comes to keeping an eye out for oncoming motorcyclists. When drivers fail to check their blind spots or rearview mirrors, they are more likely to accidentally strike a motorcyclist since they’re smaller and harder to see.
