Motorcycle Accidents.

In recent years, motorcycles have become an increasingly common sight on our Kentucky roads and highways. More and more Kentuckians have fallen in love with the unparalleled experience of travelling on the back of a motorcycle. With that experience come challenges all riders know well.

According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), motorcycles made up 2.5 percent of all registered vehicles in the United States in 2005. It may surprise you to learn, motorcycles actually accounted for and even lower number of total vehicle miles traveled - 0.4 percent. While motorcycles accounted for less than half of one percent of vehicle miles traveled, motorcyclists accounted for 10.5 percent of total traffic fatalities.

The fatality rate for motorcyclists was 5.4 times the fatality rate for passenger car occupants and per vehicle mile traveled, motorcyclists were about 37 times as likely as passenger car occupants to die in motor vehicle traffic crashes.

Some of these numbers can be attributed to motorcycle riders who lacked proper training, but many motorcycle riders are injured and killed every year by the carelessness of other drivers. If you, or someone you love, has been injured on a motorcycle due to the negligence of another driver, it is important you contact an attorney immediately. If you have lost someone you love due to the negligence of another, you need someone to stand by you and your family through this trying time.
