Motorcycle Accidents in Kansas City
When compared to the occupants of a car or truck, even the most conservative of motorcyclists have considerably higher odds of enduring injuries during an accident. According to recently verified data assessed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, people who ride motorcycles are five times more likely to be seriously injured than others involved in the crash.
When you consider that riders have no protection between their body, the asphalt, and other vehicles, the injuries they receive are often critical or fatal.
Data shows that the state of Missouri saw 1,734 motorcycle accidents with some extent of injury in 2014. These collisions left 1,979 victims to deal with significant physical injuries. In that same year, 86 motorcycle accidents occurred that abruptly ended the lives of 88 people.
