Motorcycle accidents historically involve a high rate of injuries and fatalities even though motorcyclists represent a minority of drivers. Since motorcycles do not have the weight of an automobile, or safety features such as a roof, airbags or seatbelts, motorcyclists sustain more serious injuries and more fatalities than those involved in car accidents. As a matter of fact, approximately 98% of all motorcycle accidents result in injuries or death.
Over 80% of motor vehicle accidents involving a motorcycle are not the motorcyclist’s fault. Motorcycle accidents are usually the result of the limited visibility of the motorcyclist to other drivers, road hazards, such as potholes or uneven pavement, motorcycle defects and adverse weather conditions.
