Texas hit-and-run motorcycle accident causes injuries

Motorcycle accidents can be devastating, especially when they involve a larger vehicle. When such an accident takes place in front of loved ones, it can cause trauma beyond broken bones and bruises. A Texas woman recently watched as an SUV traveling in the wrong direction struck her husband while he was riding his motorcycle.

The woman saw the impact around 10 p.m. one evening and was horrified that the driver of the SUV did not stop to render aid. Friends called 911 for the 45-year-old Marine veteran, and he was rushed to the hospital for treatment. Meanwhile, witnesses found a side view mirror that had broken off the SUV in the accident. They photographed it and posted it on Facebook to help investigators locate the driver.

The victim told reporters of his disbelief that the driver of the SUV did not stop after striking his motorcycle, and that the driver seemed to be willing to leave him there to die. Fortunately, the man's injuries were limited to a broken pelvis and numerous scrapes and bruises across his body. Nevertheless, his injuries will require a lengthy hospitalization and months of rehabilitation.

Victims of Texas motorcycle accidents are not always so lucky. In many cases, injuries are life-changing or even life-ending. Families of victims are often left with mounting medical bills and, in the worst cases, funeral expenses. By contacting a personal injury attorney, those families often find satisfaction in filing a claim for compensation against the drivers believed responsible for their loved ones' injuries.
