Motorcycle Accident Statistics in Texas
We can look to statistics surrounding motorcycle wrecks in our state to show how likely it could be to be injured in one of these collisions. The Texas Department of Transportation released a report that notes the number of injuries that occurred in our state and what level each of the injuries fell under. Here are the statistics of motorcyclist fatalities and injuries in Texas in 2020:
- 173 total injuries and fatalities
- 222 unknown injuries
- 1,222 non-injuries
- 1,704 possible injuries
- 2,687 non-incapacitating injuries
- 1,856 suspected serious injuries
- 482 fatal injuries
When you examine the levels of injuries and the number of people in each level, you can see that compared to non-injuries involved in the crashes, there are far more people who are mildly, seriously, and fatally injured. The number of people who were injured in any way from a moto wreck is five and a half times larger than those who weren’t injured at all in a collision.
This shows that drivers and passengers on motorcycles are five and a half times more likely to be hurt when they’re in a collision on their bike than they are to come out of the scene unscathed. This is because people riding on motorbikes are more exposed than their counterparts inside regular motor vehicles. This means that a collision is more likely to impact a motorcyclist’s body directly or could throw them from their bike and cause even more trauma on that impact.
When you’ve been struck on your motorcycle and suffered injuries and other damages, you shouldn’t be responsible for those costs. Our Brownsville, TX motorcycle accident attorney is here to help you recover exactly what you deserve from the negligent party.
