Houston Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
Were You Injured In A Motorcycle Accident?
At the Hollingsworth Law Firm, our Houston motorcycle accident attorneys and support staff provide the critical legal resources our fellow Texans need to pursue results inside and outside the courtroom.
Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents are quite common in Texas, and most of these crashes are the result of negligent drivers who fail to look for and recognize the riders in traffic.
Sadly, distracted drivers — and those who simply do not check their surroundings before changing lanes or making turns — are causing motorcycle accident fatalities every day, according to the Texas Department of Transportation.
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, either as the operator or a passenger, because of another driver’s negligence, contact our Harris County personal injury lawyers today to get the help you need.
Collectively, our skilled Houston personal injury attorneys have spent more than three decades working on both sides of the courtroom, gaining unparalleled experience of the inner workings of some of the world’s largest insurance companies, and transforming that knowledge into wins for our clients.
We can pursue the same results for you and your family.
Our skilled legal staff offers services in English, Spanish, Portuguese, and Mandarin because we believe in inclusion, fairness, and justice. It is only possible to successfully represent the people in our communities when we can successfully represent all people.

What are the Most Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Texas?
Forty two percent of all fatal motorcycle crashes that involved another motor vehicle involved a vehicle turning left while the motorcycle was going straight. Even though the riders have the right of way in these scenarios, drivers cannot accurately gauge the speed or distance of the rider, which leads them to falsely believe they can turn ahead of them.
Other common causes of motorcycle accidents in Texas include:
- Distracted driving
- Head-on collisions
- Impaired driving
- Rear-end collisions from traveling too close to riders
- Road hazards
When a motorcyclist is hit by a much larger vehicle, the rider often suffers catastrophic injuries that change their lives. In addition, there were 482 motorcycle operators and passengers that were killed on our Texas roadways last year alone, which left family members reeling from their sudden losses.
If you were hurt in a Texas motorcycle accident or lost a loved one to negligence, contact our skilled personal injury attorneys and wrongful death attorneys in Houston today for help.

Can I Pursue Financial Recovery from a Negligent Driver if I Was Not Wearing a Helmet?
The Texas Department of Transportation states all riders must wear a helmet if they are under 21. While all riders are encouraged to wear a helmet for safety, you may ride without one if you are over 21 and meet an eligible helmet exemption.
If you were injured by a negligent driver and are not legally obligated to wear a helmet while riding in Texas, it should have no bearing on your personal injury case.
