Motorcycle Accident Facts
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), motorcycle accidents account for 14% of all traffic fatalities, though motorcyclists represent a mere 3% of the entire registered motor vehicle fleet in the United States. While motorcycle accidents aren’t quite as common as car accidents, when they do occur, a motorcyclist is about 28 times more likely to die than those in passenger vehicles.
That said, there were a total of 4,985 motorcycle accident-related deaths in 2018 alone, and even that staggering number is a 5% decrease from the year prior. Studies reported by the NHTSA show that drunk driving plays a large part in many of the incidents, as does failure to wear a helmet.
While motorcyclists can certainly take extra measures to protect themselves by wearing helmets, avoiding lane splitting, and driving sober, sometimes events unfold beyond the motorcyclist’s control. If you find yourself dealing with the aftermath of a damaging motorcycle accident caused by someone else’s negligence or mistake, you may have a personal injury claim.
Types of Motorcycle Accidents
As with any motor vehicle accident, several different conditions and circumstances can lead to a crash. However, some types of crashes are more common than others.
Common types of motorcycle accidents include:
- Left-turn accidents
- Lane-splitting accidents
- Blind-spot-related accidents
- Head-on collisions
- Mechanical malfunctions
- Accidents caused by road hazards
- Drunk driving accidents
- Reckless driving accidents
- Distracted driving accidents
- Collisions with stationary objects
The degree of severity in any of these accidents can depend on several factors, like the speed of the vehicles involved, the road conditions, and the size of the other vehicles involved. The resulting injuries can be catastrophic in any motorcycle accident, if not deadly. Common types of injuries can range from road rash to broken bones, spinal damage, or head trauma. In any case, it is always crucial to seek medical attention and call an attorney to determine your next step.
