Of these motorcycle accidents, 176 resulted in fatal injuries for the motorcyclist or the passenger of the motorcycle. When a motorcyclist is involved in any type of accident, the injuries are usually more serious than if involved in a crash while driving or occupying other types of vehicles, even if safety gear is worn.
Serious injuries can include broken bones and other fractures, internal hemorrhaging, spinal cord injuries, and brain injuries. These types of injuries can affect a motorcycle rider for the rest of his or her life.
