Motorcycle accident injuries can be the most serious injuries to sustain. And deaths due to motorcycle accidents are more common than other types of vehicle accident injuries. Motorcycles are not as visible as passenger cars. Motorcycle accidents in the freeways are due to lane changes, other drivers hardly see them.
In 2003 alone, over 67,000 motorcyclists were injured in traffic crashes and 3,661 were killed. This represents a twelve percent rise over the 2002 reported fatalities of 3,270 and a four percent rise over the 65,000 motorcyclist injuries reported that same year.
More than two percent of all registered vehicles in the United States were made up of motorcycles in 2002. Of those involved in a crash, motorcyclists were six times more likely to be injured than passenger car occupants, but were shown to be 27 times more likely to die in a traffic accident than passenger car occupants.

Motorcycle injuries can be expensive, as well as physically and emotionally traumatic for motorcyclists and their family members. The injuries sustained in a motorcycle injury can be extensive, to say the least. Head injuries are all too common, as are other extensive injuries because of the exposure of the body when riding a motorcycle. Emotional scars can be as difficult to heal from as the physical ones when a severe injury occurs, and all this must be taken into careful consideration before deciding to settle with any insurance company.
