There are unique laws for motorcycle accident insurance in Texas.
From Marlon Brando to Peter Fonda–America’s fascination with motorcycles has sky-rocketed over the past few years. Along with this trend, come more motorcycle accidents. More than 85 percent of these accidents result in death or serious injury. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 100,000 motorcyclists were killed in accidents between 1966 and 2000 and more than 50,000 injuries occurred last year alone.
Serious injuries occur more often in motorcycle accidents than in cars. The lack of a roof, doors, air bags, and seat belts make the chances of sustaining a traumatic injury dramatically increase. Injuries such as orthopedic injuries, traumatic head injury, or brain injuries, and disfigurement usually are the result in most accidents involving a motorcycle.
There are special laws in Texas regarding motorcycle accident insurance. If you are involved in such an accident, it may be wise to consult an attorney as soon as an accident occurs to ensure that you and your family are legally protected and to help you obtain just compensation.
