Butts County Motorcycle Accident Attorney
Motorcycles offer a liberating alternative to cars, and many people enjoy the freedom they afford. Motorcycle accidents, however, are exceptionally dangerous. When you’re on your bike, you have nothing but your helmet to help protect you from the immense impact of an accident, which leaves you exceptionally vulnerable to serious injuries. If someone else’s negligence leaves you injured in a motorcycle accident, reach out to a Butts County motorcycle accident lawyer today.
Motorcycle Accidents: The Statistics
Motorcycle accident statistics, as shared by the Insurance Information Institute (III), tell a grim story. Consider the following:
- In 2018, nearly 5,000 motorcyclists died in traffic accidents.
- In 2018 – per vehicle miles traveled – motorcyclists were 27 times more likely to die in traffic accidents than were the occupants of passenger vehicles.
- Since 2009, the motorcycle fatality rate per 100 million miles traveled has steadily risen from 21.46 to about 25.
When you are on your bike, you are more difficult for other drivers to see – especially drivers who engage in negligent practices, such as driving while distracted, speeding excessively, driving aggressively, driving while impaired, and drowsy driving. Nevertheless, drivers are charged with driving safely in relation to actual traffic on the road, which includes looking for, seeing, and accommodating motorcyclists like you.
