Aggressive & Effective Representation for Motorcycle Crash Victims
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration monitors traffic-related accidents throughout the United States and provides specific data on motorcycle accidents. The Administration defines a motorcycle as a moped, two or three-wheeled motorcycle, off-road motorcycle, scooter, mini bike, or pocket bike.
In 2013, motorcycle riders accounted for 14 percent of all traffic fatalities in the United States. Over 4,600 people were killed riding motorcycles in that year. When thinking about purchasing, renting, or borrowing a motorcycle it is imperative that riders know the serious dangers and risks. A collision, turnover, or accident can be both financially and emotionally devastating for motorcycle riders and their loved ones.
But perhaps the single greatest indicator as to whether a motorcycle rider survives a collision is the presence of a protective helmet. Helmets are estimated to be 37-percent effective in preventing fatal injuries to motorcycle riders. In other words, for every 100 motorcycle riders killed in crashes while not wearing helmets, 37 of them could have been saved had all 100 worn helmets.
Despite motorcycles being perfectly legal, the presence of car and truck drivers makes riding a dangerous activity. Those that fail to operate cars in a reasonably prudent and safe manner can be held liable for the harm they cause to motorcycle enthusiasts.
