Motorcycle Accident Statistics

At The Daspit Law Firm, we recognize that motorcycle accidents can have a devastating impact on the life of the injured rider, or of the surviving family members in the case of a fatal motorcycle crash. One of the most important things to know about this type of accident is that the odds are heavily stacked against the rider and any passengers on the bike. A report published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) found that in fatal collisions between automobiles and motorcycles, the rider or motorcycle passenger dies in 98 percent of cases, while a driver or passenger in the automobile loses his or her life in only 2 percent of such accidents. This disparity constitutes a great injustice, in light of the fact that other research from the NHTSA has found that car drivers are at fault in two out of every three crashes between autos and motorcycles.

Not only are motorcycle riders usually not to blame for their accidents, but they are also far more likely to suffer serious injury or death. According to statistics provided by the Texas Department of Transportation, there were 5,740 motorcycle accidents resulting in catastrophic injury, in addition to 2,078 accidents resulting in less-serious injuries. In comparison, there were 52,243 serious injury car accidents and 88,684 resulting in relatively minor injuries. These figures show that whereas serious injuries are slightly more than half as common as normal injuries in car crashes, they are 2.76 times more common in motorcycle accidents. Furthermore, injuries occurred in only 37 percent of car accidents, as compared with a staggering 83 percent of motorcycle accidents. In addition to the thousands of motorcycle riders and passengers who were injured in Texas in 2012, another 467 lost their lives in fatal motorcycle crashes.

Claim Compensation for Your Houston Motorcycle Accident

As soon as possible after you have suffered an injury or have lost a loved one in a motorcycle crash, contact us to discuss the situation and learn whether you have grounds to sue. If the other driver is to blame for causing the accident, we may be able to help you claim financial compensation by filing a personal injury or wrongful death claim. Our Houston personal injury lawyer has extensive experience with investigating accident cases and pursing claims on behalf of his clients, and he knows how to get results.

Let us guide you through the claims process and fight to protect your right to fair compensation. You simply cannot count on the insurance company to treat you fairly in paying on your claim. They will most likely attempt to deny you compensation by demonstrating that you are to blame for your crash or seek to minimize your claim through arguments that your injuries and economic losses are not as great as they actually are. Contact our office for a free case evaluation so that we can advise you of the value of your claim and begin working on an individualized strategy for you.
