A Biker Injury Attorney Can Help You Obtain the Compensation You Deserve
All automobile accidents are serious, with car crashes being some of the most frequent. That said, motorcycle collisions are often much more severe due to a motorcycle's pavement proximity, its speed, it being difficulty to see and a biker's lack of protection compared to other vehicles.
Motorcycle Crash Statistics
Some revealing statistics:
- In 2008, there were 2,387 two-vehicle fatal crashes involving a motorcycle and another type of vehicle. In 41 percent (985) of these crashes, the other vehicle was turning left while the motorcycle was going straight, passing or overtaking the vehicle.
- Per vehicle mile traveled, motorcyclists are about 37 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a traffic crash.*
