Austin Motorcycle Accident

Accident and Injury Lawyers

The recent deaths of an Austin police commander and her husband keep motorcycle safety fresh on the minds of the Austin people. Road conditions, speed and alcohol play major roles in motorcycle accidents. In 2001 there were 242 fatal motorcycle accidents in Texas alone. With the overcrowded Austin interstates, motorcyclists are especially vulnerable due to the size comparison of the motorcycle with an average sized motor vehicle. Motorcycles are more difficult to see making collisions on Austin Highways more likely.
