Motorcycles have just as much right to the road as cars and trucks. Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents happen and because motorcycles offer little protection, motorcycle accidents can result in serious injuries.
The most recent data collected by Louisiana State University reveals that 86 motorcyclists were killed in road traffic accidents in 2013, up from 78 motorcycle deaths in 2012. The good news is that the use of motorcycle helmets increased. Out of the 2,023 motorcycle crashes in 2013 recorded by Louisiana State University, helmets were used a vast majority of the time.
What Are Common Motorcycle Injuries?
