As motorcycle enthusiasm increases in the United States and Pennsylvania, so too do the number of catastrophic motorcycle accidents and motorcycle crash fatalities. Motorcycle accident victims are 27 times more likely to die in a motor vehicle accident and six times more likely to get hurt, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
Approximately 88,000 people were injured in motorcycle accidents in 2013.
Additionally, motorcycle fatalities accounted for about 14 percent of all motor vehicle accident fatalities in the US. Motorcycle accidents contribute to serious injuries including spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, amputation and even wrongful death. Accident victims may not be able to work and earn money needed to support their family or pay the costs of recovery.
Motorcycle drivers have little protection when colliding with a motor vehicle (whose driver is protected by seatbelts, airbags and the large metal frame of their vehicle). In addition, common road hazards such as potholes, black ice or slick roads provide much greater risk for motorcycle drivers than automobile drivers. Motorcycle drivers are extraordinarily exposed on their bikes with only a leather jacket and a helmet between their bodies and the pavement.
