At Thomas J. Henry, our Houston motorcycle accident attorneys know how influential a crash can be on a client and their family’s everyday life. If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, you are aware that the results can often be catastrophic and in some cases deadly.

Drivers in cars can sustain serious and life-threatening injuries in crashes, but motorcycles lack airbags and other essential safety features that can save a passenger vehicle motorist’s life. When a motorcyclist is struck by a car, severe injuries are common.

In 2015, Texas was third in leading the nation in motorcyclist fatalities at 443. According to the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), there were 500 motorcyclists (operators and passengers) killed in 2016. 53% of motorcyclists killed were not wearing helmets at the time of the crash.
