Of any type of accident, motorcycle accidents seem to have the largest percentage of serious injury and fatalities. Statistics reveal that approximately 77% of motorcyclists are hit in the front of their cycle, and only 7% are struck from behind with over 80% of all motorcycle crashes resulting in serious personal injury or death.
Most often, drivers say that they did not see the motorcycle before the crash, which is why there is a high level of impact delivered directly on the body causing serious injury, permanent disability and even death. This is obviously because if the driver did not see the cycle, then the driver had no time to slow down or slam on the brakes prior to impact. Every year, more than 2,000 motorcyclists are killed in accidents with cars. Jeffrey H. Penneys, Esq. handles motorcycle accident settlements on a daily basis.
