Motorcycles are fun to ride, and statistics suggest more people are riding them. Data from the NHTSA found there were 8.6 million private and commercial motorcycles on the highways of the United States in 2015 compared to 8 million the previous year. However, the likelihood of a serious injury or death when in a collision is very high. Motorcycles account for less than 2% of registered vehicles in the United States but weigh in at 85% of all traffic deaths. Many reasons account for this. Motorcycles offer less protection for their riders than other vehicles on the road and have a less visible profile. This leaves the rider with a higher risk of a collision with a careless driver. If you have been injured because of a negligent driver you need an experienced attorney to help you get your life back. Call Milam Law Firm today.
