Orange County Motorcycle Accident Statistics
A report on Sullivan County Traffic Safety Data prepared in 2015 shows just how dangerous motorcycle accidents can be to the rider. Data compiled over a three-year period from 2011-2013 show an average of 1,749 motor vehicle crashes per year, with 31% of those crashes involving injury or death. When only motorcycle accidents are considered, it is revealed that injury or death occurred in 90% of motorcycle crashes, three times the injury and fatality rate among other vehicle accidents.
Helmets were used in 86% of those crashes, so lack of helmet use cannot be blamed for the tragically high number of injuries in the Sullivan County motorcycle crashes. Motorcycle riders simply lack the protection in a crash that motor vehicle occupants enjoy. Cars are made safer every year, but motorcyclists remain at the mercy of others on the road. Sadly, after 50 years of improving safety records, the rate of traffic accidents has begun to climb every year for the last three years, most likely due to distracted driving caused by cell phone use and other in-vehicle distractions. Distracted driving car accidents have especially taken a toll on motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians, as distracted drivers are less likely to notice their presence until it is too late to avoid a collision.
Given the severe nature of injuries inflicted in motorcycle accidents, it is especially important to get the help of a successful personal injury lawyer with experience recovering compensation for victims of catastrophic injuries in negligence cases. At the Law Office of Taran M. Provost, PLLC, our Goshen motorcycle accident attorneys work to secure a settlement that accounts for the full range of medical costs and other legal damages.
