Fatal Motorcycle Collisions In Texas
Every year, over 500 motorcyclists will lose their lives in motor vehicle accidents in Texas. Sadly, the chances of victims sustaining fatal injuries are greatly increased when commercial vehicles, such as buses, are involved.
Motorcyclists are more vulnerable than most other drivers on the roadways simply because they do not have steel cages encompassing them like with other vehicles. For this reason, accidents in which they are involved tend to be far more devastating. When victims lose their lives in these collisions, they often leave behind grieving families and friends. In some cases, surviving family members can contact a Texas wrongful death attorney to hold wrongdoers accountable for the loss of their loved ones.
