How Motorcycle Accidents Happen
Many drivers involved in crashes with motorcycles say that they did not see the motorcyclist. Motorcycles are smaller and less visible than cars and trucks. Unfortunately, many drivers are only looking for large vehicles such as cars and do not remain alert for motorcycles, bicycles or pedestrians.
Busy Intersections in McAllen are especially dangerous for motorcyclists. Drivers often turn left into the path of oncoming motorcyclists because the driver failed to see the motorcycle or misjudged its approaching speed. When this occurs, the motorcyclist may be unable to avoid hitting the automobile. Bikers are often thrown from the motorcycle in these collisions and may sustain broken bones and serious head injuries including traumatic brain injuries.
When motorists attempt to change lanes and fail to see a motorcycle in the adjoining lane, the motorcyclist may be struck by the vehicle or forced off the road to avoid a collision. The failure of drivers to recognize motorcycles in traffic is a leading cause of motorcycle accidents and injuries such as head injuries and fractures.
In Texas, 443 motorcyclists died in crashes in 2015, the most recent year of complete data, and thousands sustained injuries. Nearly a fourth of the riders killed were between the ages of 20 and 29, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. A much higher percentage of motorcycle crashes involve injuries than auto accidents. Motorcycles provide riders little protection in the event of a crash.
