Traffic accident statistics show that motorcyclists have a 50 percent higher chance of being involved in an accident than automobile drivers. Even though it is often the negligence of others that causes motorcycle accidents, the motorcyclist is generally the person to incur the most serious injuries.
According the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the number of crash-related motorcyclist deaths has more than doubled in the past decade. In 2015, the NHTSA reports a tragic 4,976 fatalities resulting from motorcycle-involved accidents.
