Texas Motorcycle Accident Facts & Statistics
There were nearly 420,000 registered motorcycles in Texas in 2021. Despite representing a relatively small portion of all registered vehicles (approximately 22 million in the entire state), motorcycle accidents kill and injure a significant number of people. In 2021 alone:
- 521 motorcyclists died in fatal collisions, up from 412 motorcyclist deaths in 2019
- There were 2,139 serious motorcycle injuries
- 3,013 minor injuries were recorded in motorcycle crashes
There were 4,489 total motor vehicle accident fatalities in the state of Texas. Fatal motorcycle accidents represented nearly 12% of all road deaths despite only making up around 2% of all registered vehicles in the state of Texas.
May through October is considered to be the deadliest months for motorcycle riding in Texas, which is why the personal injury lawyers from Buckingham & Vega Law Firm urge all motorcyclists to exercise additional caution during these months.
Motorcycle Accidents in Houston
In 2019, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) identified Houston as the most dangerous city for motorcyclists, with more fatalities than any other city in the state. This is the sad reality that we have witnessed in our years of representing motorcycle accident victims and their families.
