If you are involved in a motorcycle accident, your chances for serious injury are significantly higher than the driver or passenger of a car, truck, or SUV. Because of your physical exposure to the road, other objects, and other vehicles, your injury risk is increased by almost 8 times, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Your risk for death is even higher; per the NHTSA motorcycle riders in 2008 were 39 times more likely to die in a fatal crash per mile traveled than the driver or passenger of a car. Motorcyclists are often ignored, unseen, or considered a nuisance or hazard on the road by other motorists, which allows for negligence and wrongdoing on the part of these drivers resulting in serious and even fatal crashes.
