Motorcycle Accidents Your Injury, Our Fight

Amarillo, TX Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Being in a collision while riding a motorcycle can cause serious injuries. When you ride your motorbike, even if you’re wearing the proper clothing and a helmet, you’re still more exposed than if you were riding in a car. In the event of a crash, another vehicle will directly collide with your body. If the impact throws you from your motorcycle, the force of you hitting the ground can cause you even more injuries.

When you were paying attention and riding safely, the wreck wasn’t your fault. Our Amarillo, TX motorcycle accident lawyer can help you recover compensation for the damages that you suffered as a result of someone else’s negligence. You shouldn’t be responsible for the costs of your injuries and other related bills when you weren’t the one at fault.

If your or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident, contact our dedicated team of Amarillo attorneys.

Motorcycle Accident Statistics for Texas

Texas is a great state for motorcyclists. Its wide open spaces and generally warm climate allow riders to use their bikes almost year-round. While this is enjoyable and lets you get more use out of your motorcycle, it also opens a larger window for you to get injured on your motorbike because you’re riding it more.

In 2020, there were many injuries and fatalities from motorcycle accidents in Texas. The Texas Department of Transportation released a report detailing the specific amounts of injuries and fatalities that were recorded that year from crashes involving motorcycles. Those statistics are:

  • 482 fatalities
  • 1,856 suspected serious injuries
  • 2,687 non-incapacitating injuries
  • 1,704 possible injuries
  • 1,222 non-injuries

In many other statistics, like car accidents, the non-injuries are usually much higher compared to the number of injuries and fatalities. However in the motorcycle accident statistics, you can see that the values are much closer, and that non-injuries are much less frequent than injuries. This is likely because motorcyclists are much more likely to be injured in a crash than those inside a regular vehicle.

These numbers show that it isn’t rare for motorcyclists and their passengers to get seriously injured or pass away from collisions with other vehicles. That’s why safety is essential—it helps prevent wrecks as much as possible and gives you the best chance at not getting seriously injured.

When a crash has already happened, though, and it wasn’t your fault, our Amarillo, TX motorcycle accident attorney is prepared to work for you in getting you justice. We’ll represent you and ensure that the other party is held responsible for all the unnecessary harm they’ve caused you.
