Statistics Show Those Involved in Motorcycle Accidents Are Likely to Suffer Preventable, Life-Altering Consequences
Cleveland, Ohio—May 3, 2016 -- A new infographic published by Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA offers sobering statistics for motorcycle enthusiasts. With its demonstrated leadership in the areas of motorcycle and motor vehicle accidents, product liability, and personal injury, the firm compiled recent studies that illustrate how harm caused by motorcycle accidents is often preventable, and often severe enough to be life-altering.
According to MotorcycleRoads.com, Ohio is ranked fifth in motorcycle registrations nationwide and is one of thirty states with partial helmet laws, only requiring individuals age 17 and younger to wear a helmet. The firm’s infographic demonstrates that 39% of Ohio motorcycle riders in accidents were un-helmeted, and of those, 65% ended in fatality. Additionally, according to studies cited in the infographic, most accidents occur in the summer, so this infographic is quite timely. The infographic “Ohio Motorcycle Injury & Statistics” contains alarming statistics and outcomes, as well as safety tips; it is available for immediate download.
