Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle Accidents

As more people enjoy the appeal of motorcycles, the number of motorcycle accidents on Texas roadways will increase. Unfortunately, many people fail to see motorcycles on the road, making injuries inevitable.

Motorcycles also do not offer safety features such as seatbelts and airbags, or even protection on all four sides. As a result, these collisions often cause serious injuries and death. Many injuries from motorcycle crashes are life long, requiring the injured person to need medical care for many years.  Scott Brann has been riding motorcycles most of his adult life.  His Texas driver’s license includes a motorcycle license. He knows that drivers of cars and trucks too often just ignore motorcycles.  It is estimated that approximately 80% of crashes between motorcycles and car and truck drivers are not the motorcycle riders' fault, but riders often pay the price with lasting physical injuries. 

Motorcycle accidents can be caused by the following:

  • Driving while intoxicated (DWI)
  • Talking or texting while driving
  • Street racing or aggressive driving
  • Failure to maintain vehicle
  • Running a red light or stop sign
  • Tailgating
  • Failure to control speed
  • Driving while tired or while taking prescription medications
