Delaware Motorcycle Accident Facts & Statistics
In Delaware, as all other states, motorcyclists are more vulnerable on the road and are more likely to be injured or killed than car occupants. Delaware motorcycle accidents cost millions of dollars annually. Research shows that these costs come from motorcycle accident issues such as emergency services, medical costs including rehabilitation, property damage, loss of market productivity including lost wages, loss in household productivity and insurance costs, including claims and the cost of defense attorneys.
If pain and suffering is figured in that number increases by millions more dollars spent annually. In Delaware it is rare that a motorcycle accident claim does not have a pain and suffering component.
Injuries Seen In Delaware Motorcycle Accidents
All types of motor vehicle accidents have the capacity to inflict life altering and sometimes fatal injuries. This is particularly true of motorcycle accidents as there is no metal shell to live as with a car. Motorcycles do not have the safety feature of an airbag deploying. As the rider is so physically exposed even an accident at a lower speed can result in road rash injuries, brain injuries (even with a helmet on), spinal cord injuries, amputation and broken bones. Many motorcycle accidents result in accidental death aka wrongful death.
