Motorcycle Accident Statistics

2020 was the deadliest year yet for motorcycles, with 5,458 people killed due to motorcycle-related traffic collisions. According to national experts, this represents a 9% increase over 2019 and the highest number of motorcycle fatalities in history.

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. Motorcyclists often get from accidents are road rash, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and bone fractures.

In this case, a broadside accident took place. A “T-Bone” crash is a commonly used term for a broadside motorcycle accident. When one vehicle “crashes into the side of another vehicle,” the term “broadside” is used to describe the impact. When two automobiles collide in a T-Bone style, the results can be disastrous, especially if one of the vehicles is a motorcycle.

When a motorcycle is involved in a broadside or T-bone crash, the rider is frequently ejected. Motorcycles, unlike passenger cars and commercial trucks, have no protective steel frame around them. Additionally, if a motorcyclist is ejected from the motorcycle, there are no airbags to protect them. When a motorcycle crashes, it’s common for the rider to sustain injuries to their neck, back, legs, arms, and other body parts, as well as internal and external injuries.
