What are your thoughts on these motorcycle accident statistics?

As a motorcyclist, you hope you never become a statistic. You hope that you drive your bike, day in and day out, without incident. Even so, you know that you could be involved in an accident at some point. This is why you do whatever you can to stay safe and protect yourself.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration collects a variety of data related to motorcycle accidents. Here is one statistic that you should always keep in mind: In 2012, 4,957 motorcyclists were killed in an accident.

As if this number is not enough to scare you, there is something else to think about: During the same year, 93,000 motorcyclists were injured in motor vehicle traffic crashes.

While there are many types of motorcycles, the two-wheeled variety are involved in most accidents. These types of bikes accounted for more than 90 percent of all motorcycles involved in fatal accidents.

When broken down by month, this means that approximately 400 people are killed in a motorcycle accident monthly. It also breaks down to approximately 7,750 injuries per month.

Motorcyclists need to understand that the roads are not always a safe place. Even if you are following the rules of the road and driving in a cautious manner, another person could make a mistake that causes an accident. And since you are at a disadvantage due to a lack of protection, the risk of an injury or death is much greater.

If you are ever involved in a motorcycle accident, don't wait to receive medical treatment. Acting fast is a critical step in your recovery.
