Last year, there were over nine thousand motorcycle accidents in Texas – 459 were fatal. A motorcycle accident can have devastating personal, physical, and financial effects on its victim. A motorcyclist who is struck by a car or truck is likely to suffer serious injuries such as a back injury, brain injury, or spinal cord injury. Most motorcycle accidents are caused by careless drivers who simply do not see motorcycles until it is too late, especially during left turns.
