According to the National Highway Traffic Administration, approximately 91,000 Americans are injured and more than 4,000 are killed each year in motorcycle accidents.

Unlike other vehicles, motorcycles provide a more dangerous ride for their operators. The lack of safety features, such as a seatbelts and airbags, can leave riders susceptible to serious injuries and even death. There are many features that make a motorcycle an inherently dangerous type of transportation, such as:
- There are only two wheels, which can make a motorcycle very unstable in the event of an accident.
- A motorcyclist is susceptible to making direct contact with the road when involved in an accident.
- A motorcycle has a lighter and smaller frame, making it more vulnerable to even the lightest impact and resulting in even greater injuries and damages.
- A motorcyclist is more vulnerable to road defects and poorly maintained roadways.
This inherently dangerous design of a motorcycle can lead to serious physical and emotional injuries in the event of an accident. Motorcycle victims are more susceptible to injuries that can have serious impacts on all aspects of their lives and the lives of their loved ones. Some common injuries suffered by motorcycle accident victims include:
- Fractured or broken bones
- Serious head and brain injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Road abrasions
- Scarring and disfigurement
The cost to medically treat any of these serious injuries can wreak financial havoc for the victims and their families.
