Facts About Motorcycle Accidents
Many motorcycle accidents are caused by a
truck or SUV making a left turn in front of a motorcyclist's right-of-way
at an intersection. Most often the accident is caused by the driver of
the car or truck failing to see the oncoming motorcycle approaching. In
nearly half of all motorcycle accidents, the driver's view of the
motorcycle is limited by glare or obstructed by other vehicles. In these
cases, the motorcyclist has less than 2 seconds to successfully complete
an evasive maneuver to avoid the collision. According to the National
Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), based on data gathered
in 2004, motorcyclists were nearly 34 times more likely to die and 8 times
more likely to be injured in a motor vehicle crash than were passenger-car
occupants. Motorcycle riders between the ages of 16 and 24 are most likely
to be involved in a motorcycle crash.

Motorcycle crash studies indicate that motorcycle riders are typically
not at fault in multi-vehicle crashes. Motorcycle crash studies reveal
that motorcyclists involved in accidents had an average speed of less
than 30 mph before the crash and a crash speed of only 21.5 mph. Insurance
companies use unfair tactics when handling motorcycle accident cases.
