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.

The following are the most common injuries associated with motorcycle accidents:

If you or a loved one have been hurt in a motorcycle crash, you need a motorcycle accident attorney with the expertise and legal resources necessary to assist you in resolving your case. Contact Thomas J. Henry immediately if you were injured in a motorcycle accident due to the negligence of another motorist.

The most common causes of motorcycle accidents are:

  • Speeding
  • Objects/items that obstruct the roadway
  • Motorists not seeing the motorcycle
  • Mechanical issues
    • A defect in a motorcycle’s design or manufacturing can easily cause an accident; this could be the basis for a product liability case.
