Many drivers fail to see motorcyclists on the roads and thus injuries are inevitable. As more and more people enjoy the wind-in-your-hair appeal of motorcycles, there will be an increase in the number of motorcycle accidents on Texas roadways. Motorcycles do not offer the safety features of other motor vehicles such as seatbelts and airbags, or even protection on all four sides by barriers of metal. This results in the vast majority of motor vehicle collisions causing significantly more serious injuries and death. Often times, these injuries are lifelong, requiring the injured person to need medical care for many years, if not the remainder of their life.
Like automobile accidents, motorcycle accidents can be caused by the following:
- Driving While Intoxicated (Drunk Drivers)
- Texting/emailing/talking on the phone while driving
- Street-racing or aggressive driving
- Failing to maintain vehicle
- Running a red-light or stop sign
- Following too closely
- Failing to control speed
- Driving while tired or side-effects of prescription medications
