There were 501 Texas motorcyclist fatalities in 2017 and 52% of those who were fatally injured were not wearing helmets. What does this mean? It means that if you want to increase your chances of surviving a motorcycle accident, wear a helmet! Even though wearing a helmet increases your chances of surviving a motorcycle accident and may help to decrease the severity of your injuries in a motorcycle accident, helmets do not prevent all motorcycle injuries and deaths. In 2017 over 5,000 motorcyclists were injured in the State of Texas. And as you are likely aware, motorcycle injuries can be severe and devastating.
While you cannot predict and prevent all motorcycle accidents, there are some common causes and factors in many motorcycle accidents. Knowing these causes and factors, some of them listed below, may heighten your awareness and caution in certain circumstances.

After I was severely injured, I didn’t know what to do next. One of my colleagues recommended reaching out to Dorothy for representation. When I finally did, I didn’t regret my decision — I received tremendous support and she treated me like family. She brought the best outcome and I’m amazed at the passion she brings into her work. I would recommend her services without any reservation.
I’ve always known that I needed an insurance policy to protect me if I got into a car accident.

Dottie secured a fair and equitable settlement, and I’d recommend her to anyone in need of good counsel and representation.
