Seeking Maximum Compensation For Accident Victims In Central Texas
While riding a motorcycle is a more practical way to travel, it does come with higher risks since motorcycle riders are less protected from impacts than those in cars or trucks. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2017, 5,000 motorcyclist deaths occurred. Out of those 5,000, 39% of the bikers were not wearing helmets.

What Are Texas Motorcycle Laws?
In the state of Texas, there are several regulations set by the Texas Department of Transportation. These include:
- In the state of Texas, a biker under the age of 21 must wear a helmet.
- Only after completing a safety course or having appropriate insurance can a rider over the age of 21 be permitted to drive without a helmet.
- To receive a motorcycle license, every motorcycle driver is required to complete a department-approved training course.
- Texas requires all motorcyclists to go through a safety inspection.
- In Texas, all drivers must have valid registrations and acceptable insurance.
Even if you were not in compliance with a law, you might still have the opportunity to recover compensation for your damages under the state’s comparative negligence laws.
