Motorcycle collisions will cause difficulties and extra stress on the rider involved and family members.  The injured rider likely will wonder how they will pay the surmounting hospital bills, receive future medical care and be reimbursed for their time off work.  Our motorcycle injury attorney, Shawn Haven Dove can help put your mind at ease with answers to these questions and professional guidance through this difficult process.

Arizona Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Motorcycle accidents can result in significant injuries due to the lack of protection a motorcycle provides, especially if a helmet is not worn.  The common injuries that occur include:

  • Head and Brain Injuries (TBI)
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Road Rash Injuries
  • Burns
  • Loss of Limb Injuries
  • De-gloving

Arizona Motorcycle Crash Statistics and Causes

In 2016, there were 3,179 motorcycle crashes in Arizona, and 142 of them were fatal and 2,417 reported injuries.   Some of the most likely causes of motorcycle accidents are the following:

  • Other drivers’ negligence
  • Speeding
  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Uneven or badly paved roads
  • Weather conditions
  • Failure to see

Safety Tips.

Always wear a helmet.  In Arizona, helmets are only required if the rider is 18 years or younger, but helmets prevent many deaths each year.  Over half of the fatalities in motorcycle accidents, the rider was not wearing a helmet.  Wear protective clothing such as a visible helmet and motorcycle jacket, pants, boots and gloves.

Riders should also note the worst times to ride their motorcycle.  In Arizona, motorcycle crashes occur most often on Saturdays.  The peak time is between 4:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m.    Always avoid riding while impaired as a large number of crashes are due to intoxication.
