We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.
Personal injury is a regular occurrence following motorcycle accidents. Victims often need emergency medical care and multiple surgeries. As a result, injured riders may be forced to take time away from work and endure a major loss of income during their convalescence.
Data rendered from a statistical analysis shows that Utah observed 1,734 significant motorcycle accidents in 2014. These accidents resulted in 1,979 victims being severely injured. In that same year, 86 motorcycle-involved accidents took place during which 88 people died.
Critical injuries, like those that affect the brain or spinal cord, and even fatalities can be caused by a motorcycle accident. This is especially true if another vehicle was involved. This is because motorcycles do not provide their operators with any of the safety features that are enjoyed by the occupants of passenger vehicles. These features include seat belts, roll cages, and airbags. Their absence leaves riders vulnerable to serious internal injuries as well.
