Soft tissue injuries can also debilitate motorcyclists

This blog has discussed how easy it is for a Houston, Texas, motorcyclist to suffer a serious brain or spine injury on account of a speeding driver or distracted driver who simply does not see, or does not have time to stop for, the motorcyclist.

Injured motorcyclists may need help getting compensation

Motorcycle accidents rarely end well for the motorcyclist and anyone riding with him or her. The reason is that even if the rider is wearing the proper safety equipment, one's helmet and protective clothing are often not enough to absorb the full brunt of a collision with a much heavier car or truck.

Texas motorcycle accident fatalities in 2016

Motorcycles are very popular in Texas. This may be because of the state's large area, and many miles of open, flat roadways, the relatively mild climate, or perhaps even the tradition of Texans being independent thinkers. Whatever the reason, many Houston residents, like those throughout the state, enjoy hopping on a motorized, two-wheel vehicle and hitting the road. These individuals do need to be aware, however, that there is an inherent risk every time they go for a ride.

Houston motorcycle accident leaves one dead


Most Houston residents are aware that motorcycles can be more dangerous than other types of vehicles. Their small size can make them harder to see on the road, their narrower base makes them unsteady, and they lack the protection drivers of other vehicles enjoy. Still, many Texans enjoy riding, and the state certainly has its share of people willing to take those risks for the thrill of the ride. In most cases, motorcyclists believe that a terrible accident won't happen to them

Fighting misplaced assumptions after a motorcycle accident


Contrary to what many people might think, riding a motorcycle can be safer than driving a passenger vehicle. Motorcycles tend to be more maneuverable than cars, and motorcyclists don't have to worry as much about blind spots due to their greater field of peripheral vision. However, there are those who will still harbor some misplaced assumptions about people who ride motorcycles. They might think that motorcyclists are "thrill seekers," or that they are more prone to violate traffic laws. These assumptions on their own might not be a big concern to our readers, but they can be difficult assumptions to overcome in the aftermath of a motorcycle accident.
