Corpus Christi, TX Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Corpus Christi, TX Motorcycle Accident LawyerCorpus Christi can be a beautiful place to take a ride on a motorcycle. You have the Gulf of Mexico on one side of you, and the city on the other. Having the sun and warm Texas air swirling around you while on the road can be exhilarating and freeing, but it can also be one of the most devastating experiences of your life when you’re struck by another vehicle while riding.

Our Corpus Christi, TX motorcycle accident lawyer can help you get justice when you’ve been in a collision you didn’t cause. Even if you were being as safe as possible on your motorbike, another driver’s negligence could quickly turn into a deadly situation for you when they crash into you.

Since you’re more exposed on your bike than they are in their vehicle, the injuries you suffer can be far worse than what they incur. At Buckingham & Vega Law Firm, we’re prepared to investigate what caused your accident and who was at fault so that you can get justice for what you’ve been through.

Texas Motorcycle Crash Statistics

On average, one motorcyclist died in a crash in Texas every day in 2020. Even though motorcycle wrecks in general reduced by two percent that year, fatalities increased by 17 percent in that same year. In fact, motorcyclist fatalities make up 12 percent of all traffic fatalities in the state. That might seem like a small percentage, but there are far less motorcyclists on the road compared to regular vehicles.

Additionally, the Texas Department of Transportation released a report of motorcyclists who were injured and killed in crashes in 2020. Here are the different levels of injury and the number of victims from Texas motorbike wrecks that year:

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

Comparatively to other accidents, like car and truck accidents, the numbers for victims who suffered injuries compared to non-injuries are much larger. This is because riders and passengers on motorcycles are more exposed when they are on the bike.

When someone crashes into them, they are more likely to be injured because their bodies are directly impacted by the vehicle. If they are thrown from the motorcycle, the impact of the pavement can create even more injuries.
