Motorcycle Death & Crashes

I enjoy riding my motorcycle.  Today with cell phones and distracted driving, riding a motorcycle has become more dangerous.  I know all to well what’s it’s like out there on the roadways while riding a motorcycle.  If you’ve been in a crash on your bike, if someone claims they did not seen you, call me.  413.499.6626. I’ll take care of you and your case.

According to National Highway Traffic Safety Agency (NHTSA) the number of motorcyclist crash-related fatalities has more than doubled during the past 10 years.  According to the Federal Highway Administration study, in 2011 alone, nearly 4,462.00 people lost their lives in motorcycle crashes. That is twice the number of deaths that occurred in 1997.

Motorcycle deaths are increasing year after year while auto deaths are slowly decreasing.

The famous HURT report found the following common causes of motorcycle crashes:
