Fatal Motorcycle Accident Statistics
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 alone.
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.
Not every motorcycle accident victim walks away. Motorcyclists are much more likely to experience fatal injuries in a crash than passengers of other motor vehicles.
