Fatal Motorcycle Accident Statistics

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), approximately 11% of all road accidents in the United States are caused by motorcycles. Eighty-two thousand motorcyclists were injured, and 4,985 died in 2018.

Given that motorcycle riders are 16 times more likely to be injured or killed in a car accident than passengers in enclosed vehicles, this is not a surprising number.

Major concussions can be prevented with the use of helmets. The effectiveness of motorcycle helmets in preventing fatalities is 37%. Despite this, the rest of their bodies may still be at risk.

Distracted driving, speeding, drunk driving, reckless driving, inclement weather, wrong-way driving, and failure to obey traffic laws are common causes of motorcycle accidents.
