Motorcycle Accidents: Information & Statistics
There is nothing as exhilarating as being able to enjoy the scenery and beauty of nature while out on the road driving a motorcycle. Unfortunately, a bad patch in the road is not the only danger facing a motorcycle rider. Over 5,000 motorcyclists and their passengers are killed every year in the United States, and another 100,000 sustain injuries.
As a motorcycle affords no protection for rider or passenger, even a low speed collision can have tragic consequences. Most collisions with other vehicles occur because the driver of the vehicle didn't register the presence of the bike. If you have been injured or lost a loved one, consult a Phoenix personal injury attorney as soon as possible. A legal professional can provide you with the high-quality counsel and comprehensive protection that you and your family need if you are seeking to file a wrongful death or
personal injury claim.
Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
In approximately 66% of motorcycle crashes that involved a fatality, drivers were speeding or driving recklessly. Only 25% of fatal accidents involved failing brakes or failed steering attempts. In an accident where the other driver was so distracted that he or she failed to grant right of way, that driver may not be able to give a correct report of the accident to the investigating officer.
