Motorcycle Accidents Attorneys in Texas
Compared to automobile drivers, motorcycle riders are always at a higher risk of getting injured in road accidents. Even with their helmets and protective gear, they are still exposed to a greater chance of injuries. Automobiles have airbags, seat belts, and other safety features that ensure the well-being of drivers. The car’s body offers protection to the occupants in the event of collision or impact. Motorcycle riders do not get the benefit of these defensive elements.
The law allows motorcycle riders to recover compensation for injuries suffered as a result of accidents as well as those arising from the defects in their motorcycles. In addition, motorcycle riders may file claims for compensation to make up for the lost wages and costs relating to medical treatment, rehabilitation, and other expenses stemming from the accident.

Risks of Motorcycle Riding
The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that in 2005 over 4,500 motorcycle riders were killed in road accidents in the U.S. In Texas alone, about 360 motorcycle riders died.
For motorcycle accident victims, there is a great risk for:
- Brain damage
- Broken bones
- Disfigurement or mutilation
- Loss of limbs or limb functions
- Spinal cord injuries
- Wrongful death
This is particularly true in high-speed collisions or violent impact accidents.
