Austin Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
Updated August 21, 2019
Motorcycle accidents can be life-threatening and life-changing. There are plenty of statistics that show the dangers of motorcycle accidents and the severe injuries that can result. These motorcycle accidents can have tragic results that can devastate people’s lives.
Just over the weekend, we learned of the tragic news that Austin resident and famed Longhorn and NFL running back, Cedric Benson, was killed in a collision between his motorcycle and a minivan. He was only 36. Reportedly, his passenger was also killed in the crash and two others injured. Incidents like this remind us how vulnerable motorcycles are to impacts from larger vehicles.
Approximately four out of every five riders will be seriously injured in a motorcycle accident. As you can see, the odds for a minor accident are not in your favor. Motorcycles leave people in a vulnerable state, as there is nothing between your body and the road’s surface, leaving you exposed to many different injuries.
Motorcycle accidents happen for many different reasons. Frequently, though, it is just because other motorists are simply not paying attention to their surroundings. Talking and/or texting while driving cause many of today’s accidents. Some of the most common reasons for accidents in Texas are as follows:
- Distracted driving;
- Poor vehicular maintenance;
- Debris on the road; or
- Ice/bad weather conditions.
