Motorcycle Accidents in Texas
Motorcycle accidents in Texas claim the lives of more than 400 people every year. Countless others are left with serious injuries that negatively impact their lives. The fact that motorcyclists have little more than helmets to protect them during crashes means they are likely to sustain spinal cord injuries, broken bones, and even back injuries that require extensive medical care.
These and other injuries often require immediate medical attention. In some cases, victims have to go through long-term care. Not only are injuries incredibly painful and debilitating, but they are often costly to treat. No one is able to completely prepare for the aftermath of a collision. The time following a crash can be extremely confusing. Being forced to deal with painful injuries is only made worse by the towering financial consequences both victims and their families endure.
