Motorcycle Accidents – Minor and Serious Injuries
The following statics are startling. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, (NHTSA):
80% of motorcycle accidents result in injury or death, compared to only 20% for car accidents.
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 93,000
motorcyclists injured during 2012, a 15-percent increase from 81,000 in 2011.
There can be no doubt that motorcycle fatalities are on the rise. At Makofka and Makofka, we share your passion for motorcycles and riding, and we are very concerned by the above statistics. We have seen first hand how motorcycle crashes affect peoples lives. We have been to the hospitals, and we have stood at the bedsides as our clients lay there suffering.
