Motorcycle Riders Can Suffer Severe Injuries

Motorcycle accidents have increased dramatically in recent years as increasing numbers of baby boomers have purchased the bike they've always dreamed of owning. More bikers on the road means more serious accidents.

A Growing Trend

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that motorcycle accident fatalities per 100 million miles travelled have risen from 20.99 in 1997 to 39 in 2006. In Iowa, 54 motorcycle riders were killed in accidents during 2007. There were 13 motorcycle accident fatalities in Nebraska that year.
