Three Dead After New Braunfels Accident Involving Two Motorcyclists

Posted on in Motorcycle Wrecks

New Braunfels Personal Injury AttorneyNearly half a million motorcycles are registered in Texas. The warm weather and scenic landscapes make it a perfect destination to enjoy the road on a motorcycle. Unfortunately, motorcyclists are almost 30 times more likely to pass away in a traffic accident than those in passenger cars. Fatal motorcycle accidents are not uncommon in the Lone Star State. Just recently, two motorcyclists and one pick-up truck occupant died in a collision on Farm-to-Market Road 306. It is unknown at this time what the exact cause of the accident was or whether negligent driving may have played a role in the crash.

Investigators Believe Speeding May Have Contributed to Fatal Crash

Collisions involving motorcyclists often lead to catastrophic or life-threatening injuries – especially when motorcyclists are not wearing a helmet. The exact cause of the recent collision is still being investigated. However, a representative for the Texas Department of Public Safety has stated that speeding around a corner may have led to the tragic accident.

Speeding is a common contributor in fatal and injury-causing accidents in Texas and throughout the United States. While most people are used to driving a few miles above the speed limit, it is important for every driver to remember that speed limits exist for a reason. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that speeding is a contributing factor in over a quarter of all fatal traffic accidents.

Legal Options for Injured Motorcyclists and Families of Deceased Motorcyclists

Violating the speed limit is against the law. When a driver is speeding and causes someone else to be injured in an accident, that driver may be liable for damages. If you were hurt in a motorcycle crash or a loved one was killed in a motorcycle accident, you may be able to pursue compensation for medical bills, lost income, funeral and burial expenses, pain and suffering, and more. A skilled personal injury attorney with experience in motorcycle crash claims can help you explore your options for pursuing compensation. Sometimes, a settlement can be reached with the at-fault driver’s insurer that adequately covers damages. Other times, legal action in the form of a personal injury lawsuit is needed to hold the driver accountable and recover monetary damages.
