MOTORCYCLES ACCIDENTS SHOULD ALARM YOU – THEY’RE MORE COMMON THAN auto accidents

Motorcycle Accidents Statistics 

It is not well known that motorcycle accidents numbers can be triple that of automobile figures in some places. Of the entire state of Washington, only 3% of road users own motorcycles. But, the Washington Traffic Safety Commission shows staggering numbers. Motorcycles equal 15% of all traffic fatalities in Washington.

Another set of data has revealed that there were a total of 2,138 motorcycles accidents that occurred in the state of Washington in 2018. The injuries you may suffer from a motorcycle accident can be much more dangerous than an auto accident. This is because you do not have any other protection other than your helmet.

It can be costly, nerve-wracking, and traumatizing. That is why here at the Law Offices of Michael Clark, we tell motorcycle riders to keep their eyes on the road because they are much more prone to accidents.
