According to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), deaths from motorcycle crashes have more than doubled in the past decade. Over 100,000 people are killed in motorcycle crashes each year. The yearly number of motorcycle deaths is more than twice the annual number of fatalities in all aviation, rail, and marine accidents combined. Head injuries are the leading cause of death in motorcycle crashes.
Unlike drivers of automobiles and trucks, motorcycle riders have very little protection and are more vulnerable to injury when involved in accidents. As verified by NTSB statistics, injuries to bikers are often fatal or lead to permanent injury. In addition to head injuries, bikers often sustain broken bones, torn muscles and ligaments, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, internal organ damage, burns, and loss of use of limbs.
