Motorcycle Wrecks in Arizona
Motorcycle accidents in Arizona have more than doubled in the last 25 years across the state, per the latest data published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Furthermore, recent crash statistics indicate that one in seven fatalities on roads nationwide occurred on a motorcycle. Due to the nature of riding, motorcyclists are far more vulnerable to serious injuries or even death than vehicle drivers, even while wearing helmets and protective gear.
Whether it’s long-term physical issues and costly medical bills or lost wages from time spent recovering, motorcycle crash victims suffer from tragic, unforeseen circumstances.
