Motorcycle Accidents in Texas
In 2017, approximately 499 motorcyclists lost their lives on Texas roads. Most motorcycle accidents happen at intersections due to drivers making left turns in front of oncoming motorcyclists. Because drivers inside of passenger vehicles are more protected than motorcyclists, they are less likely to sustain injuries. However, motorcyclists often suffer severe injuries that could result in fatalities.
