HOUSTON MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT LAWYERS
Injured in Houston, TX? Call Wyly & Cook, PLLC!
Motorcycles can be a great way to commute on Houston’s busy streets and are the go-to form of transportation for thousands of people. As useful as motorcycles can be in cutting down travel time and gas money, they can also be incredibly dangerous to riders. There is very little to protect the motorcycle rider between the pavement, vehicle or object of contact other than the clothes and helmet he may be wearing. For this reason, motorcycle accidents are often catastrophic. Crash victims frequently suffer from broken bones, road burns, head and brain trauma, amputations, paralysis and sometimes death.
Injuries and Damages Suffered By Riders
More fatal accidents occur on motorcycles than any other type of vehicle. In a study conducted by the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration, over 5,000 fatal crashes occurred in 2008 alone. Riders that are not injured, often require hospitalization for their injuries and can face high medical costs, long-term recovery, and psychological damage. While most accidents are single-rider accidents, there are plenty of collisions that occur between a motorcycle rider and a negligent driver. If you have been injured because of another driver, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your injuries.
