motorcycle accident


Motorcycle enthusiasts are particularly susceptible to injury due to the lack of protection from external forces. Head injuries, paralysis, internal bleeding and often times death can result from contact with a fixed object, impact from a car or truck, seat ejection or skidding along a concrete surface.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):

  • 11% of all roadway accidents that occur in the United States involve motorcycles.
  • Motorcyclists are 35 times more likely to be involved in a deadly accident than those in passenger cars.
  • Head injury is the leading cause of death in motorcycle accidents.
  • In 2006, 88,000 motorcyclists were injured in highway accidents alone.
