Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists are on two wheels rather than four, so they’re certainly not as stable as other vehicles, and they present a different and smaller profile in traffic. Motorcyclists do not have a steel body and frame around them to help absorb an impact. There are no specially designed crumple zones, restraint systems or air bags to protect them either. Motorcyclists are completely exposed to injury. Even a light impact with a moving motorcycle can cause severe injuries or death. According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration’s 2014 statistics, motorcyclists were 27 times more likely to die in an accident than occupants of passenger vehicles per mile traveled, and five times more likely to be injured. There were 4,586 motorcycle accident fatalities that year with about 92,000 injuries. Feel free to contact me to discuss your accident, and I’ll tell you what I can do for you.
