According to the U.S. Highway Safety Authority, the rate and number of motorcyclists who die each year on U.S. roads are rising radically. Motorcycle related fatalities rose 115 percent between the years 1997 and 2005. In one year alone (2005), motorcycle crash-related deaths increased by 13 percent making the death toll 4,553 that year. In fact, some of these statistics have been fed by the Conway and Myrtle Beach area. Dirk Derrick has the experience and knowledge to be the accident attorney to get your case settled the right way.
Several factors that contribute to the number of motorcyclist deaths each year include a rise in motorcycle ownership, an increase in motorcycle size and a decrease in rider experience. The increase rate of fatalities has actually overtaken the increase rate of motorcycle registration. On top of this, the injury and death rates among middle-aged motorcyclists have increased faster than ever. In 2004, motorcyclists were 34 times more likely to die in a motor vehicle traffic accident than a passenger in a car (per vehicle mile traveled). Not to mention, 8 times more likely to be injured in total. Dirk Derrick is a motorcycle accident attorney who knows the latest trends and facts about motorcycle incidents.
