Motorcyclists are vulnerable on the road. They are not as big as other vehicles and they do not have the same level of protection. This makes motorcycle accidents especially dangerous, and they can result in catastrophic injuries. In many cases, motorcyclists are left with life-altering injuries and permanent damage. In the worst cases, they may lose their lives.

To do this, you need the help of an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer. Our team at The Ricky Rod Law Group can serve as your advocate. We can help you seek the compensation you need and deserve.
Why Are Motorcycle Accidents So Common?
Motorcycle accidents are unfortunately common in Texas due to a variety of factors:
- Distracted Driving: One of the leading causes of motorcycle accidents in Texas is distracted driving. Drivers who are not paying attention to the road often fail to see motorcyclists, leading to accidents.
- Left-Hand Turn Accidents: These accidents occur when a vehicle making a left-hand turn collides with a motorcycle. The driver may fail to yield the right-of-way to the motorcyclist.
- Head-On Collisions and Speeding: Both of these factors contribute significantly to the prevalence of motorcycle accidents in Texas.
- Impaired Driving and Road Hazards: Drivers under the influence of drugs or alcohol pose a significant risk to motorcyclists. Additionally, road hazards such as potholes, debris, and slick surfaces can lead to accidents.
- Aggressive Driving: Tailgating and other forms of aggressive driving pose a particular risk to motorcyclists.
- Low Visibility: It's often difficult for drivers in cars to see and judge the speed of motorcycles.
- High Population Density and Weather Conditions: Texas has a large population and diverse weather conditions, both of which can increase the risk of motorcycle accidents.
- Excessive Speed: In some areas, like Houston, excessive speed has been noted as a primary cause of crashes.
