Fatal Motorcycle Accident Statistics
Motorcycle accidents are terrible tragedies that almost always harm the motorcyclist more than the other party involved. Motorcyclists are highly vulnerable in collisions and can easily sustain catastrophic and fatal injuries.
Motorcycle accidents can often lead to catastrophic and even devastating results. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s National Center for Statistics and Analysis, approximately 5,286 motorcyclists were killed in the U.S. in 2016.
Many injuries can result from a motorcycle crash, from road rash and traumatic tattooing to head and brain injuries. Motorcycle accidents also have serious effects on the involved party’s mental health, often resulting in emotional scarring. Motorcycle riders are encouraged to dress appropriately and wear a helmet every time they ride their motorcycle to prevent fatal injuries. Wearing helmets were estimated to be 37% effective in preventing motorcycle deaths.
