The National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA) reports that approximately 89,000 people were injured and more than 4,500 people were killed in motorcycle accidents in the United States in 2012. Although California’s perfect weather and beautiful scenery may be perfect to own and ride a motorcycle, the dangers are ominous and the lack of safety features in the event of an accident can be deadly.

Unlike other motorists, motorcyclists are more susceptible to serious injuries in an accident. The lack of safety features, such as steel frames, airbags and seatbelts, can leave motorcycle victims suffering devastating injuries or death.
Some reasons why motorcycles are inherently dangerous modes of transportation include:
- Only two wheels make a motorcycle very unstable in an accident.
- The smaller and lighter frame of a motorcycle makes it more vulnerable to a lighter impact resulting in greater injuries and damages.
- The rider has direct exposure to pavement and the road in an accident.
- A motorcyclist is more susceptible to poorly maintained roads.
Common Types of Motorcycle Accident Injuries
A motorcycle injury can physically, emotionally and financially impact the life of the victim and his or her family members. Motorcycle injuries are often more severe due to the inherently dangerous nature of the ride. Some common motorcycle injuries include:
- Broken or fractured bones
- Head and brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries, such as paralysis
- Neck and back injuries
- Scarring and disfigurement
