Number of Motorcycle Accidents on the Rise Since 2003

Thinking about finally getting that motorcycle you’ve always dreamed about? Do these lower gas prices entice you to ride your motorcycle more often? Recent motorcycle accident stats should make you reconsider – since 2003, motorcycle-related collisions and fatalities are up 23% 1.

In 2008, motorcycle accidents reached a peak before dropped over the next two years. Then from 2010 through 2012, accidents & fatalities spiked again. Specifically in Los Angeles County, collisions are up 15% while fatalities are up 59% – an alarmingly high spike in fatalities. The cause of these increased fatalities can’t be blamed for increased registrations either – there was only a 5% growth in registrations between 2010 and 2012.

Why Are They on the Rise?

One leading theory behind the rise in motorcycle wrecks and fatalities is an increase in new and inexperienced riders. With gas prices lowering and the economy beginning to grow, some people may have an increase in disposable income, allowing them to (re)kindle some hobbies such as recreational riding.

We here at the firm of Scott J. Corwin, A Professional Law Corporation urge motorcycle riders of any experience level to take safety courses. By keeping up with the latest information about bikes, riders can ensure themselves the safest riding experience.

Actions to Take After a Motorcycle Collision

Unfortunately, even the safest of riders is susceptible to an accident. As one ex-motorcycle rider quips, “It’s not if you are going to be in an accident, it’s when.” If you or a loved one are in a motorcycle collision, know what to do with some easy-to-follow steps:

  1. Call 911 and ensure everybody’s well-being is addressed
  2. As long as all people involved are safe, exchange contact and insurance information with the other party/parties in the accident
  3. Take notes & photos of the accident
  4. If you find yourself to be in the accident due to the negligence of someone else, call an attorney 2

With today’s rising number of collisions and fatalities, motorcycle riding is becoming more and more dangerous. We recommend attending safety courses – especially for new or rusty riders – to ensure riders are as prepared as possible before taking the road. And should you wind up in an accident, we can help.
