Motorcycle Crashes in Hamilton County
Motorcycle collisions can happen in an instant and leave riders suffering from severe injuries. Motorcycle accidents often leave victims with expensive medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and other damages. The Ohio State Highway Patrol reports statistics related to many types of collisions across the state each year, including motorcycle collisions. In 2017, the OHSP found that there were 3,826 motorcycle crashes reported across Ohio. These collisions contributed to 157 deaths. OHSP data revealed that motorcycle injuries were more likely to involve those from the ages of 51 to 55, while motorcycle fatalities primarily involved those from the ages of 21 to 25.
Motorcyclists, even when they follow the necessary safety protocol, have little protection when colliding with a motor vehicle, and this places them at greater risk of suffering serious to life-threatening injuries in the event of a collision. Common road hazards that are just slight inconveniences for passengers of larger motor vehicles, such as potholes, ice, cracks, or slick roads are a much greater risk for riders than drivers. Ohio motorcycle crashes can leave riders paralyzed, as amputees, or with other types of permanent disability that can greatly impact their ability to live their lives as they once could.
