Poor weather and traffic collisions

The consumption of alcohol, fatigue, and speeding all contribute to the prevalence of motor vehicle accidents across the country. However, there are other factors that cause these crashes too, such as poor weather conditions. Our law office knows that weather in Texas can be unpredictable and unfortunately, it can also lead to a deadly crash. From fog to icy roads and strong winds, weather events increase the likelihood of a motor vehicle collision in many ways.

Statistics on large truck crash injuries

In 2012, 135 large truck accident fatalities were reported in Texas alone, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. While fatal large truck wrecks are a serious concern, these accidents also cause a large number of injuries as well. In Dallas, and across all other parts of the state, it is worth pointing out that injuries can destroy the lives of victims in a myriad of ways. From interfering with a victim's ability to work to causing an incredible amount of physical pain, there is a wide range of potential problems that can come along with a truck collision, even if those involved are fortunate enough to stay alive.

As a motorcyclist, you may have a wide variety of stressors, such as operating your motorcycle during inclement weather or the risk of being hit by a distracted driver. However, there are many other reasons why these accidents can occur, threatening the lives of motorcyclists and also leading to lifelong injuries. For example, if your motorcycle is not aligned properly, you could find yourself in an accident.
