The Deadliest of All Motor Vehicle Accidents
Motorcycle accidents are not the same as other types of motor vehicle accidents. The risks involved with operating a motorcycle, causes of motorcycle accidents, injuries sustained, and liability issues all place motorcycle accidents into a unique category.
In 2013, there were over 5,000 motorcycle accidents throughout New York, resulting in 164 fatalities per the New York DMV. There are a number of factors that add to the risk of operating a motorcycle safely, including but not limited to:
- Limited visibility to other motor vehicle drivers
- Road hazards such as debris
- Potholes, rocks, mud, and sand;
- Decreased stability
According to a 2009 report by the Department of Transportation (DOT), fatalities caused by motorcycle accidents are approximately 40 times higher than fatalities caused by car accidents.
