Motorcycles are popular in Texas. However, hundreds of motorcyclists die on the state’s roads each year.
These accidents have several contributing factors including alcohol use, distraction, road debris, dangerous lane changes, and unsafe turns.
Motorcyclists often suffer serious injuries, and some are deadly. Bikers can suffer head and brain injuries, spinal cord trauma, broken bones, internal bleeding, road rash, and facial injuries.
Bikers are not always responsible for the injuries they suffer. If someone else’s negligence contributed to the crash, that person can be held responsible.
Injured people and the families of surviving can file civil legal action to recover their-accident related losses.
This is typically done with help from a car accident lawyer.
