Motorcycle Accidents in Texas
Unfortunately, thousands of motorcyclists are killed annually throughout the nation. The number one cause of almost every motorcycle accident is a driver’s inattention. Because motorcycles are way smaller than passenger vehicles and trucks, it’s easier for them to get caught in the driver’s blind spot, and if drivers are inattentive, it’s easy for them to strike motorcyclists.
