Houston Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), "Between 2001 and 2008, more than 34,000 motorcyclists were killed and an estimated 1,222,000 persons were treated in a U.S. emergency department." Motorcycle riders are vulnerable to some of the worst accidents possible on the road. According to Trafficsafety.org, "Motorcycles are far less crashworthy than closed vehicles. They are also less visible to other drivers and pedestrians and less stable than four-wheel vehicles. Operating a motorcycle requires a different combination of physical and mental skills than those used in driving four-wheel vehicles. Motorcyclists and their passengers are more vulnerable to the hazards of weather, traffic and road conditions than drivers in closed vehicles."
Without the natural protection that is afforded to an occupant of a passenger vehicle, motorcyclists can suffer some of the harshest and most brutal types of injuries, including
spine injuries leading to
road rash and even the
loss of limb. These are not only physically painful - they are expensive to treat and can be emotionally damaging. According to the CDC:
- Motorcyclist death rates increased 55% from 2001 to 2008
- Motorcyclist treated injuries have risen from 120,000 in 2001 to 175,000 in 2008
This is a distturbing trend. If you are a victim of such a situation or if your loved one passed away in a motorcycle accident, it is important to remember that you are not without hope - there are places for you to turn to get the healing you need to help put your life back on track once more.
