NJ Accident Lawyers at Console & Hollawell React to New Motorcycle Crash Data from the U.S. Government Accountability Office
Date:12/4/2012

Marlton, NJ (PRWEB) December 04, 2012

Motorcycle crashes kill thousands of riders annually in the United States, and a new government report is showing their true financial toll. Costs from injuries and fatalities directly attributed to motorcycle accidents totaled $16 billion in 2010, according to a report issued by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO).* Researchers stated the full cost of these collisions are most likely higher than this already astronomical amount because of the difficulty in measuring long-term medical expenses of survivors. In New Jersey, accident attorney Richard P. Console Jr. sees the struggles injured victims face every day as they progress through their medical treatment.

Long-term medical treatment can be very expensive without recovering deserved compensation.”

GAO* data stated motorcyclists are 30 times more likely to die in traffic-related accidents than those traveling in passenger vehicles. In 2010, there were 4,502 people killed and more than 82,000 people injured in motorcycle crashes across the United States. Broken down, GAO stats* showed the individual cost for a motorcycle crash resulting in a fatality was $1.2 million, whereas the cost of an accident causing injury varied from $2,500 to $1.4 million. Injury costs can range higher than those of motorcycle crashes resulting in death due to the long-term expenditures for medical care and the basic needs of those who survive. More people are surviving crashes thanks to proper safety equipment, including helmets, whi
