Are motorcyclists more likely to pass away in a crash?

Whenever a collision occurs on the road, the outcome can be perilous. Unfortunately, this is particularly true for those who ride a motorcycle. In Hartford, and in all other parts of Connecticut, there are quite a few reasons why motorcyclists face particularly perilous outcomes when they are involved in a traffic accident. Not only do many loses their lives, but scores of motorcyclists are never able to return to their previous quality of life after a collision. If you ride a motorcycle, it is crucial to be aware of the multiple hazards you face every time you take to the road.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration states that information from 2014 shows motorcyclists were 27 times more likely to pass away in a deadly accident in comparison to those who were riding in different types of vehicles, such as cars and trucks. The NHTSA raises awareness about some of the different ways that motorcyclists can try to avoid an accident and increase the chances of survival if they are involved in a crash. For example, you should always wear a helmet that fits you properly and is compliant with regulations. Moreover, you should avoid riding a motorcycle after consuming drugs or drinking too much alcohol.

Unfortunately, many accidents occur because of the negligence of another and it is vital for injured motorcyclists to examine their options after a collision. Sometimes these accidents occur regardless of how cautious a motorcyclist is, and it is especially upsetting when a motorcyclist passes away or sustains a debilitating injury because of someone else’s careless behavior.
