Motorcycle Accident Statistics
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) regularly compiles statistical data about motorcycle accidents in the United States. According to data compiled by the NHSTA, there are on average approximately 1000 fatalities from motorcycle collisions every year in America. Of these, between 10 and 20 percent occur within Ohio. A number of these incidents are caused by the negligence or recklessness of another.
Ohio Motorcycle Accident Law
In Ohio, drivers owe a duty of reasonable care to those that they share the road with. At times, driver’s responsible for a motorcycle accident will claim they didn’t see the motorcycle, when in reality, they were simply not paying attention. These type of injuries are unique in that they frequently result in severe head injuries, multiple broken bones, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries and severe organ damage.
