Unfortunately, because of their speed, when motorcyclists are injured in accidents, the injuries tend to be severe. All too often, Louisiana drivers simply do not pay close enough attention to motorcyclists, which results in accidents that could have been avoided.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, approximately 2,000 motorcyclists are killed in accidents each year, with another 50,000 people injured. A motorcyclist is almost 16 times more likely to die in an accident than someone in a car that is in a collision.
