Motorcycle Accident Statistics

Riding on a motorcycle is risky. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that the rate of fatal crashes for motorcycles is 5.5 times higher than it is for automobiles, and that a motorcycle rider’s risk of dying in a crash is 35 times greater per mile traveled than it is for a car driver or passenger. According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, motorcycle accidents accounted for only 1.8 percent of all traffic crashes statewide in 2011, while causing 11.3 percent of all traffic fatalities in the same year.

However, a large percentage of all motorcycle accidents are caused by car and truck drivers, not motorcyclists themselves. This fact has been demonstrated by the landmark Hurt Report, a research study that was commissioned by the NHTSA. According to the Report, approximately two-thirds of all collisions involving motorcycles and automobiles are caused by the car driver’s failure to yield right of way to the motorcycle rider. No matter if this failure is intentional or accidental, the results can be disastrous for the rider. If you have been injured or have experienced the wrongful death of a loved one, contact Kansas City’s motorcycle accident lawyer for dedicated legal representation. We believe that no one should be forced to pay the price for an accident that they did not cause, and we are ready to take action for you.
