Motorcycle Accidents in Texas
Information from the Texas Department of Transportation states that in 2019, 412 motorcyclists lost their lives in Texas due to fatal accidents, and over 1,800 sustained serious or debilitating injuries. Texas is one of the most dangerous states for motorcyclists in the US, along with Florida and California. The Lone Star state usually ranks first or second in terms of the most dangerous state for motorcyclists. Motorcycle accidents are much more dangerous than regular car accidents, as motorcyclists have little to no protection against the elements or the road if they’re involved in a collision.
