Motorcycle Accidents in Texas
Motorcycle accidents are very common in Lubbock, and studies show that in 2017, over 500 motorcyclists lost their lives on Texas roads. Most motorcycle accidents occur when drivers fail to check their rearview mirrors and blind spots before switching lanes on highways. Motorcycle accidents also occur frequently at Texas intersections when drivers fail to yield the right-of-way to oncoming motorcyclists. It’s easier for motorcyclists to sustain more severe injuries than occupants inside of enclosed vehicles.
