Motorcycle Accident Statistics.
Although motorcyclists represent only two percent of drivers on the road, motorcycle accidents comprise eight percent of accident-related fatalities. Motorcycle riders in accidents involving other vehicles have a staggering 98 percent chance of sustaining an injury! Tragically, most motorcycle accidents could not have been avoided by the motorcycle rider and could have easily been avoided by the driver of the other vehicle. That’s why you need an experienced motorcycle accident attorney if you or a loved one is involved in a motorcycle accident.
Motorcycles do not have the weight, protective enclosure or safety features automobiles have, so injuries sustained tend also to be more severe than those of the driver of the other vehicle. Motorcycle accidents often involve bone fractures, brain injuries, burns and amputations.
There does not need to be a collision with another vehicle for the motorcycle rider to potentially recover compensation. If the other vehicle cuts off the motorcycle and causes it to veer off course and crash, the other vehicle’s driver may be held responsible.
