For obvious reasons, motorcycle operators are more likely to die in a motorcycle accident than automobile occupants. The NHSTA reports that there is a higher motorcycle accident fatality rate in Texas than the U.S. as a whole with 360 fatalities in 2005. Unfortunately, this number has increased over the past 5 years. There are still a disproportionately high number of motorcycle accidents in Texas, many with serious brain, neck and back, or spinal cord injuries. The majority of those fatally injured were not wearing a helmet. While there is no helmet law in the state of Texas (and it can be a volatile and controversial subject to require helmets) as there are in other states, it seems that they do provide some protection depending on the factors in the crash. Motorcycle fatalities accounted for 10% of all vehicle related fatalities in Texas during 2005.

One of the possible reasons for the increase in motorcycle accidents, injuries and fatalities is the increase in their popularity over the last decade and with that a larger number of riders not having the proper license or not having the proper safety course training necessary to ride safely. Approximately half of motorcycle accidents are related to alcohol and impaired riding. Intoxicated riding severely slows the reaction time and better judgment of a normally good rider and the smallest bump in the road can cause an accident when alcohol is involved.

About three quarters of motorcycle accidents may involve one or more vehicle(s) and therefore other liable parties. It is not uncommon for the driver of another vehicle to say they never saw or were unaware of the motorcycle before the accident. If you as a motorcycle rider have been seriously injured or a loved one has been killed in a motorcycle accident, seek legal advice regarding the accident.
