What to Know About Single-Vehicle Motorcycle Accidents Amid Increase in Motorcycle Accident Fatalities
Motorcycle riders are at an increased risk for crash and injury compared to drivers of other motor vehicles and the numbers have been going up in recent years. In 2020, 5,579 motorcyclists died in crashes, which was the highest number recorded and an 11 percent increase over 2019. These fatal accidents were responsible for 14 percent of all motor vehicle accident fatalities in 2020 and were more than double the number of motorcyclist deaths in 1997.
If you or a loved one was injured in a motorcycle accident because of the negligence of another, contact an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer as soon as possible. The injury lawyer can discuss your legal rights and calculate the value of your claim.
