Motorcycle ridership and serious injuries and fatalities from motorcycle accidents have all increased steadily in recent years.
There was a 61% increase in the number of motorcyclists in traffic crashes between 1997 and 2006, according to a report by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Motorcycle accident fatalities increased 129 percent during that time.

Serious Leg Injuries Are Common In Bike Wrecks
Injuries to the lower extremities – especially the leg – are the most common injuries sustained by motorcyclists treated in trauma centers, according to a study cited in the NHTSA report. Injuries to the head, chest and abdominal area were less frequent, but more severe.
Even serious leg, knee, ankle, foot and pelvic injuries are usually not fatal, but they can be disabling.
“Lower extremity injuries often lead to extended and costly medical treatment and permanent disability.” – National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
