Motorcycle Accident Statistics
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports the number of motorcyclists killed in crashes rose 7 percent in 2012, with 4,947 riders killed in fatal motorcycle accidents and approximately 93,000 injured in crashes.
Motorcyclists face serious risks any time they take to the open road — often the direct result of the actions of other drivers. No matter how seasoned a rider, when a negligent driver is nearby, the potential for a serious or fatal accident is extremely high. A high percentage of motorcycle injuries and deaths are the result of the actions of a negligent vehicle driver. Distracted driving, speeding, inattentive driving, drunk driving, and drivers who simply fail to notice a motorcyclist is nearby can leave an innocent rider suffering serious, catastrophic, or fatal injuries.
On average, there are about 268 motorcycle accidents every day across the USA. In all, motorcyclists account for 15 percent of all fatal car accidents, and 18 percent of occupant fatalities, while making up only 3 percent of the registered vehicles in the country. These shocking numbers have led the agency to calculate that motorcyclists are currently 26 times more likely to die in a traffic accident and 5 times more likely to be injured than passenger vehicle drivers or their occupants. This leaves many families grieving the loss of a loved one, or accident victims are dealing with the consequences of a serious injury.
