Motorcycle Accidents

Free Case Review

Almost two-thirds of motorcycle accidents are caused, not by motorcycle riders, but by other drivers on the road. Unfortunately, this means that no matter how attentive motorcyclists are when riding on Texas roadways, they are still at high risk of being injured or killed in a motorcycle accident in Corpus Christi. If you have suffered injuries caused by a motorcycle accident in Texas, don’t hesitate to contact a qualified Corpus Christi motorcycle accident attorney. Our skilled personal injury lawyers at Bandas Law Firm can help you protect your legal rights and pursue fair and timely reimbursement for your injuries.

Common Causes of Texas Motorcycle Accidents

The most common cause of motorcycle accidents in Texas is the failure of motorists to detect motorcycle riders on Texas roadways. In fact, more than half of all motorcycle accidents occur because the driver simply didn’t see the motorcycle coming. Because of their small profile and unique riding pattern, motorcycles are sometimes harder to spot on the road, especially if motorists are driving distracted. Other common causes of Texas motorcycle accidents include:

  • Wet or icy weather conditions
  • Hazardous road conditions
  • Vehicles pulling out in front of motorcycles, causing them to overbrake and slide
  • Left turns at intersections
  • Drivers changing lanes

Typical Motorcycle Accident Injuries

For every mile they drive, motorcycle riders are about 21 times more likely to lose their life in an accident than a driver or passenger in a car. Motorcyclists are also about four times more likely to suffer injuries, due in large part to the fact that motorcycles offer riders far less protection than passenger vehicles do. Besides the risk of fatality, motorcycle riders are also at risk of suffering the following injuries upon being involved in a motorcycle accident:

  • Head injury
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Back and neck injury
  • Whiplash
  • Broken bones or fractures
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Amputation
  • Lacerations
