Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Killeen
Texas highways are great for riding a motorcycle. There’s plenty of open highway, fresh air and wildflowers growing along the roadways. But in a moment’s time, a joyful motorcycle ride can turn deadly. All it takes is one motorist who is too busy texting to pay attention to the road and suddenly, you are tumbling through the air.
The NHTSA's Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) has reported that there were 2,897 motorcycle deaths in the year 2000. Just eight years later in 2008, there was a huge increase and 5,290 fatalities were reported. That’s a 54% increase and authorities contribute those increases to several key factors. They include:
- No helmet laws in many states
- Baby boomers retiring. With so many citizens over 60 now, Baby Boomers are buying that big Harley they always wanted and touring America. The number of bikers over 50 who are killed each year has been gradually on the rise.
- Reckless driving-Bikers often dart in and out of traffic.
- Speeding-Bikers love to break the speed limits. Though it can be exhilarating to soar down the highway at 85 mph, if you hit a rock or slick spot, you can instantly become a motorcycle fatality statistic.
- Visibility-Bikers are difficult to see.
A motorcycle rider has no protection surrounding them like a motorist does. If they get hit at any speed, they go down hard on the pavement. Though many motorists try to be careful when on the road with a motorcycle, there are many others who don’t pay attention at all. If a driver becomes distracted adjusting the radio, setting the GPS or talking on the phone, then accidents can occur. In a moment’s time, you can have an accident that will radically change your life. Severe injuries like these may take months or years to heal.
