In motorcycle accidents, the chance of injury is extremely high. More than 98% of collisions result in some form of bodily damage. Motorcyclists and their passengers are more vulnerable to harm than drivers in passenger vehicles.
Nearly 75% of motorcycle accidents are collisions, usually with a car. In most cases, the driver of the passenger vehicle was at fault because they did not see the motorcycle until it was too late. Despite the use of proper safety equipment and defensive driving techniques, motorcycle accidents usually result in severe injury or death.
