Facts About Motorcycle Accidents

Many motorcycle accidents are caused by a car, 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.
