For many motorcycle riders, there is nothing more enjoyable or exhilarating than hitting the open road. But, even the most skilled and experienced motorcycle driver is at risk for a traumatic motorcycle accident when other drivers are reckless or negligent. Motorcycles are less stable and less visible than cars and often have high performance capabilities. When motorcycles crash, their riders lack the protection of an enclosed vehicle, so they’re more likely to be injured or killed. Tragically, a total of 4,295 motorcyclists died in 2014 from fatal crashes. In facts, the federal government estimates that per mile traveled in 2014, the number of deaths on motorcycles was over 27 times the number in cars.
