Austin Motorcycle Accident Statistics
Motorcycle crash statistics specific to Austin are not readily available. However, we can extrapolate a great deal from statewide statistics that are reported by the Texas Department of Transportation. In 2015, there were nearly 8,200 accidents involving motorcycles in the Lone Star state. 454 of those accidents were fatal, and there were 459 motorcycle accident fatalities total. Given this information, it is clear that motorcyclists face serious dangers on the road. This is all the more reason to hold accountable those who injure motorcyclists through negligent or reckless actions.
What to Do if You're Involved in a Motorcycle Accident
Immediately after a motorcycle accident occurs, the first order of business is to ensure that everyone is physically okay. You or someone else at the scene should call 911 right away. Once you've been cleared medically, your next call should be to an experienced motorcycle accident attorney. Call them before speaking to the insurance company because the adjusters will almost certainly try to push you into an unfairly low settlement. If you speak to law enforcement, provide only the basic facts.
