Motorcycle Accidents in Texas
In 2012, approximately 6,131 motorcyclists sustained injuries on Texas roads after being involved in serious collisions. Motorcyclists are highly likely to sustain serious injuries after colliding with passenger vehicles or trucks because their bodies are more exposed than occupants in other vehicles. Motorcyclists often sustain spinal cord injuries, broken bones, internal organ injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and more. Treatment can get very expensive depending on the type of injury and it’s severity. Therefore, if motorcyclists know they were not at fault for an accident, they should contact an experienced Texas personal injury lawyer immediately for legal assistance.
