How many motorcyclists are hurt each year?

In a recent post, we reviewed the number of motorcyclists whose lives are saved as a result of helmets. However, it is vital to remember that many motorcyclists are hurt in these accidents and the injuries can interfere with their lives in all sorts of ways. Not only do such injuries often lead to lost wages or even an inability to return to work ever again, but they can also cause a great deal of pain, result in limited mobility or a life-long disability, and leave victims with costly medical expenses.

According to data provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, estimates show that 88,000 people sustained injuries in a motorcycle crash during 2015. Fortunately, this reflects a decrease in the number of motorcycle crash injuries in comparison to 2014, which saw 92,000 injuries, according to estimates. When it comes to motorcycle accidents, the likelihood of an injury is especially high for various reasons. Unfortunately, motorcyclists are particularly vulnerable when they are struck by a larger vehicle. Even when a motorcyclist wears a helmet properly and takes every possible precautionary measure to avoid an accident, their entire life could be thrown into chaos because of the reckless decisions of an irresponsible driver.

If you were recently injured in a motorcycle crash, you could be having a hard time paying bills due to missing work or struggling with other challenges. If so, it is important to carefully review which options may be available, such as legal action, depending on the details of the wreck.
