Motorcycle accidents are more fatal compared to car crashes. Motorcycle riders are not protected by the car around them, and can be thrown from the motorcycle during the crash. Injuries typically associated with a motorcycle crash involve concussions, brain damage, road rash, nerve damage, bone breaks, and facial disfigurement.
According to the NHTSA 13 out of every 100,000 car drivers are involved in a fatal collision, and 72 out of every 100,000 motorcyclists die in a motorcycle crash. Motorcyclists are 26 times more likely to die in a traffic accident compared to a car driver.
