Motorcycle Accident Statistics
Although a variety of laws protects motorcycle riders, motorcycle accidents are still an inevitable occurrence. According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) statistics, motorcycle riders have 16 times the risk of injury and 35 times the risk of a fatal crash compared to car passengers.
Motorcycle accidents often lead to serious injuries and, in some cases, even death. Motorcyclists are highly vulnerable in collisions and can easily sustain catastrophic and fatal injuries.
