Motorcycle Accidents in Texas
In 2018, studies show that approximately 418 people sustained fatal injuries after being involved in motorcycle accidents. The leading cause of most motorcycle accidents is drivers not seeing motorcyclists on the road. When drivers are not regularly checking their rearview mirrors and blind spots, they’re more likely to accidentally strike motorcyclists.
