There's never a good time for someone to get hurt, and a motorcycle accident can happen suddenly and without mercy. When a person is thrown from the motorcycle after an impact, he or she might suffer from road burn, head injuries, broken bones or other serious complications. It's important for drivers of all types to take this seriously, as driving with distractions or behaving negligently increases their risk of being in an accident.
Motorcycle accidents can be devastating to families; many are fatal, and others cause long-lasting injuries that require care for months or years. According to 2015 statistics from the Insurance Information Institute, there were 4,975 people killed in motorcycle crashes. That's an increase of 8.3 percent since 2014, a sign that motorcycle safety and awareness should still be a concern for all drivers.
