Motorcycle Accidents in Arizona
More than 2,700 motorcycle accidents take place throughout the state of Arizona each year. Riders are left vulnerable to the impact of motor vehicles because they maintain little protection from harm while riding. Although motorcycles can be enjoyable to ride, doing so comes with significant risks to riders. The fact that so many motorists sharing the road engage in reckless and negligent actions while operating their vehicles means riders on these compact vehicles are likely to experience the negative consequences. As a result, many of these accidents result in debilitating injuries that force victims into hospitals.
In many cases, injured motorcyclists require extensive medical treatment for their injuries. Regrettably, there are numerous cases where motorcyclists pass away as a result of their injuries. Every year, more than 900 motor vehicle accidents in Arizona cause the death of at least one person involved. When motorcycles are involved in these accidents, the chances of catastrophic and fatal injuries are drastically increased. These vehicles leave riders without adequate protection, which can be life-threatening during collisions. When victims lose their lives in accidents, due to the negligence of other drivers, it is crucial that their families contact a wrongful death attorney in Arizona as soon as possible.
