Motorcycle Accident Statistics
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. Some injuries that motorcyclists often get from accidents are road rash, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and bone fractures.
But there is a way to avoid sustaining fatal injuries in the event of a traffic accident. Motorcycle riders are encouraged to dress appropriately and wear a helmet every time they ride their motorcycle to prevent catastrophic injuries.
Wearing helmets were estimated to be 37% effective in preventing motorcycle deaths. Some of the common causes of motorcycle accidents are distracted driving, speeding, drunk driving, reckless driving, bad weather, wrong-way driving, and failure to observe traffic laws.
