Due to the lack of protection motorcyclists possess when sharing the road with other vehicles, motorcycle accidents are more likely to result in serious injury or death.

Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Even though motorcyclists are viewed as reckless riders, accidents involving these individuals are often caused by car and truck drivers. They have an obligation to be aware of their surroundings at all times, especially when motorcycles are around them. However, motorcycle accidents typically occur due to the negligence demonstrated by drivers of passenger vehicles. While they may walk away from an accident unscathed and with minimal damage to their vehicle, motorcyclists often suffer significant damage to their motorcycle, serious injuries and even death.
The following are common acts of negligence which contribute to motorcycle accidents in Texas:
- Driving while intoxicated
- Distracted driving, commonly due to phone usage while operating a vehicle
- Failing to check blind spots for motorcyclists prior to changing lanes
- Failing to come to a complete stop prior the streetlights turn red
- Running a red light or stop sign without seeing an approaching motorcyclist
- Failing to yield right-of-way to the motorcyclists
