Motorcycle Accident Lawyers in Phoenix

Motorcycle Crash Overview

Every year over 50,000 motorcyclists are injured and nearly 2,000 of those are killed in traffic accidents. A large percentage of these injuries and deaths could have been avoided if helmets were worn by the riders and passengers. Statistics show in 2001, there were almost 3,200 deaths and 60,000 injuries due to motorcycle accidents. Of those injured, 7,000 were between 15 and 20, and of those killed, 36% were between 16 and 29. Male riders made up 90% of those killed.

Collisions with Vehicles

In comparison to drivers and passengers in a car, motorcyclists are 21 times more likely to die in a crash and 4 times more like to be injured. Motorcycles account for less than 2% of registered vehicles in the United States, but weigh in at 85% of all traffic deaths. Speeding was the factor in 39% of fatal motorcycle crashes in 2001. That is about twice the amount for drivers of cars and trucks.

Helmet Laws

The simple act of wearing a helmet reduces the rider’s risk of a deadly accident by 29%. In addition, it reduces the chance of a brain injury by 67%. Even though there is considerable documentation on the effectiveness of wearing a helmet, many riders still choose not to wear them. This is especially true when the state laws don’t require their use. Studies show that between 34% and 54% of riders actually wear a helmet. But in states that require their use, 98% of motorcyclists wear them. Unfortunately, less than half of the U.S. requires the use of a helmet.

Motorcyclists are required to abide by the same speed limits as other vehicles on the road. They are expected to drive at a speed that is reasonable and prudent.
