Anyone who rides a motorcycle is aware of the inherent danger of the vehicle and lack of protection in an accident. Motorcycle riders and passengers pay for the freedom of their rides in physical exposure to cars and hazards of the highway. A recent report underscores the growing risks of bikers on American roads.
In April, the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) released a preliminary report on motorcycle accident and injury during 2012. While motor vehicle deaths have declined in the last several years, annual motorcycle fatalities are close to a record high. In 2012, 168 motorcyclists died in North Carolina, while 5,000 died across the nation the same year.
Points to consider from the GHSA report:
In North Carolina, the universal helmet law is again under attack. Ride safe, and do not ride impaired. Wear your helmet. If injured by the negligence of others, speak with North Carolina attorneys who support motorcyclists and understand the need for compensation to get you back on the road.
