According to Texas Traffic Crash Facts, about 10% of all Texas collisions involve hit and run accidents. Of that 10%, a significant number of those crashes do involve a motorcycle. Often times, these accidents result in serious or catastrophic injury to the motorcyclist, including traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, knee injuries, broken bones and fractures, and even death.
Many victims of hit and runs often think because the negligent driver that hit them fled they do not have legal rights and may not be able to attain compensation for their injuries or get their medical bills paid. The matter of the fact is this is not always true and motorcyclist victims do have legal rights and should in fact look into them and pursue them immediately after the crash.
