According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a motorcyclist’s risk of a fatal crash is 35 times greater than the driver or occupant of a passenger car. The NHTSA also reports that 75% of motorcycle accidents involve another vehicle. Too often, other motorists fail to detect motorcyclists.
A motorcycle accident can result in severe injuries such as broken or fractured bones and head trauma. Another common injury is road rash, a skin abrasion which is caused by being dragged along pavement or concrete. Road rash is extremely painful and can result in permanent scarring, and in some cases, the need for skin grafts. These injuries often require lengthy recovery time, resulting in high medical bills and lost time from work.
