Motorcycles provide a sense of freedom and excitement that are not typically found by driving a regular passenger vehicle. Operating a motorcycle, however, comes with a greater risk of severe injuries or even death as a result of a collision.
According to the State of New Jersey’s Division of Highway Safety, motorcyclists are more than twenty-six times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a motor vehicle crash, and five times more likely to be injured. There have been nearly 13,000 accidents between 2009 and 2013 in New Jersey involving motorcycles.
Often injuries in a motorcycle accident can include fracturing arms and legs, brain damage, road rash, wrongful death, paralysis and other trauma.
