Fatal Motorcycle Accidents in Louisiana
The unfortunate truth is that the fact that motorcyclists are completely exposed during collisions means that they are four times more likely to suffer injuries in accidents than other drivers. When compared to other types of vehicle accidents, motorcycle accidents are 28 times more likely to end in fatal injuries compared to other vehicles based on the miles traveled.
