Motorcycle Accidents In Utah
In 2016, the Utah Department of Transportation reports that 1,168 motorcycle accidents occurred, resulting in 1,014 injuries and 41 deaths. Although motorcyclists account for 1% of all accident victims, they make up nearly 15% of all traffic-related fatalities. Unfortunately, these numbers continue to increase year after year across our state.
Unfortunately, those involved in motorcycle accidents often suffer severe injuries due to the fact that they are more vulnerable to the impact of vehicles than most other travelers on the roadways. Those injured in motorcycle accidents are able to file personal injury lawsuits against at-fault drivers to obtain compensation for their accidents. Although no amount of money can take away the pain a victim experiences in the aftermath of their accident, it can help to alleviate some of the financial burdens they are left to deal with.
