Motorcycle Accidents in Texas
In 2012, motorcycle accident fatalities made up 15 percent of all traffic accident fatalities in the nation. Sadly, most of these accidents were caused by negligence, which means they could have been avoided. When drivers are distracted, under the influence, or fatigued, they’re likely to be less aware of their surroundings and more prone to striking an oncoming motorcyclist, especially if the motorcycle is located in their blind spot.
