Motorcycle Accidents

 

As motorcycle popularity has increased, so too have accidents involving motorcycles. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2012, 4,957 motorcyclists were killed in motor vehicle traffic crashes—an increase of 7 percent from the 4,630 motorcyclists killed in 2011. There were also 93,000 motorcyclists injured during 2012, a 15-percent increase from 81,000 in 2011.

 

Victims of motorcycle accidents often suffer catastrophic injuries, traumatic brain injuries, burn injuries, other personal injuries, and sometimes death.  Data analyzed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration shows  in 2012, motorcyclists accounted for 15 percent of all traffic fatalities, 18 percent of all occupant (driver and passenger) fatalities, and 4 percent of all occupants injured.  Of the 4,957 motorcyclists killed in traffic crashes, 93 percent (4,625) were riders and 7 percent (332) were passengers. In 2012, motorcyclists were 26 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in motor vehicle traffic accidents and 5 times more likely to be injured than a victim in a car crash.

 

Motorcycle accidents have the potential to negatively impact your health, your family, your job, and your quality of life. Even an apparently minor motorcycle accident may result in serious injuries.  If you have been hurt because someone was negligent, you are entitled to compensation for your injuries, including pain and suffering, past and future medical bills, and lost income.  The attorneys at the Santana and Carlos Law Firm, P.C. will assist motorcycle accident victims and their families, and will obtain justice and accountability through large settlements and verdicts from individuals, corporations, and businesses responsible for the accidents.
