What is the Major Cause of Death in Motorcycle Accidents?

Posted on

When riding your motorcycle, you can be very vulnerable to negligent drivers and the life-threatening accidents they can cause. If you or your loved one has been injured – or worse – in a motorcycle accident that was caused by another driver’s negligence, you shouldn’t put off consulting with an experienced South Carolina motorcycle accident attorney.     

Head Injuries

While motorcycle accidents can cause many life-threatening injuries, one of the leading causes of fatal motorcycle accidents – according to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA) – is head injuries, including traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). 

  • More than 80 percent of all motorcycle accidents lead to the motorcyclist suffering a serious injury or death. 
  • Head injuries are a leading cause of death in motorcyclists.
  • TBIs are among the some of the most serious and most expensive injuries a victim you can have.
  • A brain injury can lead to permanent disability and a lifetime of the medical expenses that go along with that.
