Recent Outer Loop Motorcycle Accident Highlights Fact That Even When Riders Do Everything Right, They Are At Risk

A recent fatal accident involving a motorcycle being struck by a car on the Outer Loop illustrates the need for motorcycle riders to continue to ride defensively. As most riders know, the best way to keep yourself healthy is to assume that car and truck drivers are not going to operate their vehicles with your safety in mind.

Everyone should share the responsibility of making the road safe

It shouldn't be that way. All drivers should share responsibility for being safe on the road, but motorcycle riders know that too often that is not the truth and that assuming a driver sees you could be a fatal mistake.

The crash took place on the 1900 block of Outer Loop at 11:00 am as the motorcycle rider was attempting to turn left into the UPS Hub. The driver failed to yield, striking the rider as he turned left. The rider was taken to the hospital, but soon died due to the injuries he suffered in the accident.

Drivers Still Fail To See Motorcycle Riders

Like so many motorcycle accidents, this accident could probably have been avoided if the driver had been more attentive. The accident happened at 11:00 am. There were no reports of drugs or alcohol being involved. It seems that the main factor that contributed to this accident may have been the fact that one vehicle was a motorcycle and drivers often simply do not see motorcycle riders until it is too late.

Spring Is Here, Be Safe

As a motorcycle rider, it is easy to get excited about Spring arriving and enjoying the warm weather on your motorcycle. But, we caution everyone who is out riding to also keep an eye out for inattentive drivers who may be distracted or who fail otherwise to see you and drive with your safety in mind. It is all too easy for someone else to cause an accident that could leave you seriously injured or worse. 

If you or anyone you care about has been hurt in an accident while riding a motorcycle, it is always best to work with an attorney who understands and respects motorcycle riders.
