Motorcycle Rider Risks

Motorcycle Rider Risks

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has reported that in 2011 there were 4,612 motorcycle fatalities and 81,000+ motorcycle injuries. Because motorcycle riders are not physically protected like automobile drivers, the risk of severe injury and death is increased 35x in motorcycle accidents.

Motorcycle Accidents: A Variety of Causes

Use of Helmets

A large number of motorcycle fatalities are a result of brain injury. In 2008, in 43% of all motorcycle fatalities, the rider was NOT wearing a helmet. The California Vehicle Code makes it mandates use of a helmet. Violation of this law may limit a rider’s recovery for damages after an accident. In the event of an accident, it is important for injured motorcyclists to have effective legal representation and receive proper medical attention as soon as possible.
