Motorcycle Accidents in Texas
Hundreds of motorcyclists are injured throughout Texas every year. Most motorcycle accidents happen when drivers aren’t aware that motorcyclists are in their vicinity. When drivers switch lanes without checking their blind spots, they often hit oncoming motorcyclists. Most motorcycle accidents occur at intersections when drivers make left turns in front of oncoming riders.
Motorcyclists easily sustain injuries after being hit by vehicles since their bodies are exposed. If they were not at fault for a collision, motorcyclists can file personal injury lawsuits against liable parties for compensation.
