Motorcycle accidents are similar to car accidents but have a far higher rate of serious and fatal injuries. In 2007, the number of motorcycle riders killed on U.S roadways reached 5,154, an all-time high. Injuries resulting from motorcycle accidents typically result in long periods of recovery time and extensive medical bills.
Although Motorcycle accidents often arise from the negligence of the drivers involved, tire and other defects have also caused motorcyclists to lose control and crash. Additionally, defective helmets have been linked to the cause of serious injuries and death.
