Austin Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
Protecting the Rights of Injured Riders
Motorcyclists are at the highest risk of injury in traffic accidents. They are exposed, even if they choose to wear a helmet and other safety gear. According to accident statistics from the National Highway Traffic Accident Safety Administration (NHTSA) from 2014, motorcyclists were 27 times more likely to lose their lives in traffic accidents than occupants of cars, trucks, and other vehicles. With this risk in mind, it is easy to see why riders have the most to lose when motorists are negligent or violate traffic laws.

What Causes Motorcycle Accidents?
Motorcycle accidents share the same causes as other traffic collisions, such as drunk driving, and also have some that are unique to motorcycles, such as potholes that can cause a rider to lose control. An accident may have one or more causes, and it is important for your Austin motorcycle accident lawyer to carefully investigate your case to identify exactly what occurred and who should be responsible for paying your claim.
The following are potential causes of motorcycle collisions:
- Drunk driving
- Driving too fast for current road/weather conditions
- Distracted driving
- Unsafe lane changes by motorists
- Motorists failing to check blind spots for motorcyclists
- Defective motorcycle or auto parts
- Road hazards, such as objects, potholes, or animals
- Traffic law violations
- Heavy weather, such as fog, rain, ice, or snow
