Motorcycle Accidents in Tucson
In the year 2011, there were 3,058 reported motorcycle accidents, according to crash statistics provided by ADOT. A total of 2,553 individuals were injured in these crashes, and 132 were killed. The percentage of fatalities in motorcycle crashes is more than 15 times the percentage of fatalities in car accidents. This is due the fact that motorcyclists have very little protection in a collision, even when wearing quality gear, whereas a motorist is encased in their vehicle and has the protection of a seat belt and air bags.
Serious Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Even when a motorcyclist is not killed in an accident, they are still likely to suffer serious injury. Broken bones and severe road rash are very common, as are brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. Such injuries require extensive medical treatment, which in turn result in high medical bills, both of which can turn an accident victim's life upside-down.
