Texas motorcycle accident leaves man critically injured

Every time the warmer weather rolls around, many media stations throughout Texas run motorcycle awareness campaigns to help remind motorists to share the road with these two-wheeled vehicles. Unfortunately, these campaigns are discontinued when fall approaches even though many bikers will continue to ride in spite of cooler weather and diminished daylight hours. As a result, motorcyclists may face an increased risk of being involved in a motorcycle accident that is caused by an inattentive motorist.

Recently, officials received a report of a collision involving a motorcycle and a pickup truck. According to the police report, a 20-year-old man was operating his motorcycle along a local road in a westerly direction. A motorist was approaching a crossroads at approximately the same time. The driver of of the truck then proceeded to attempt to complete a left-hand turn.

Unfortunately, the driver purportedly failed to notice the motorcycle approaching from the west. The two vehicles then collided. The motorcyclist suffered critical injuries and was transported for emergency care. The driver of the truck and one passenger were not harmed in the collision.

Texas officials stated that the pickup driver claimed not to notice the smaller vehicle in time to avoid the collision, and it is unclear if the driver will face any charges in relation to this serious motorcycle accident. The motorcyclist was wearing a helmet, but the injuries he suffered are described as life-threatening. If he survives, he will likely face a long recovery and may even suffer some type of permanent physical impairment. Individuals in these situations often sustain heavy monetary losses as well. A successfully filed personal injury -- or in the case of a fatal accident, a wrongful death -- civil lawsuit may allow the injured party (or surviving family) the opportunity to be awarded compensation for those financial damages.
