MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS AND BASIC SAFETY

Everyday motorcycle accidents result in serious injuries to motorcycle drivers and passengers. Other drivers on the road should take extra precautions around motorcyclists.

  • Motorcycle crashes killed 4,502 people in 2010.
  • Motorcycle-related deaths have increased by 55% since 2000.
  • Motorcycle crash-related injuries and deaths totaled $12 billion in one year in medical care costs and productivity losses.

Research shows that the risk of motorcycle crashes injuring the rider is approximately 4 times higher than passenger car crashes injuring a person inside a vehicle.

Some of these accidents are caused by other drivers failing to take basic safety precautions. While motorcyclists have the same rights on the road as other vehicles, some drivers do not exercise the care needed to avoid accidents with motorcycles and share the road.

Vehicles on the road must take extra care to allow motorcycles space to drive, never try to share a lane with a motorcycle, do not tailgate motorcycles, check blind spots for motorcycles, and remember that road conditions which are minor annoyances to other vehicles can pose major hazards to motor­cyclists.

McGraw & Strickland have represented those injured in motorcycle accidents, including those injured by the negligence of others on the road. If you need help with your motorcycle case, call McGraw & Strickland at: (575) 323-1529.
