Fatal Motorcycle Accidents in Atascocita
Even the most cautious motorcycle riders are at an increased risk of an accident when compared to the occupant of a car or truck. According to statistics recently printed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motorcycle riders are five times as likely to sustain serious injuries than the occupants of the other people involved.
Due to the fact that there is no protection between a rider’s body, the roadway, and other vehicles, injuries are often catastrophic or even fatal.
