Motorcycle Accident & TBI Statistics

TBI-related deaths and injuries from motorcycle accidents are a significant economic and public health concern, as well as the source of devastation and pain for families across the country. Take a look at the following TBI statistics.

  • Motor vehicle crashes including motorcycle accidents are the second overall cause of TBIs, surpassed only by slip and fall accidents. (
  • Unhelmeted riders suffer about twice the percentage of head and face injuries as those wearing a helmet. (NHTSA)
  • Approximately six percent of hospital-treated riders in 2003-05 suffered severe TBIs in motorcycle crashes, and another 7.4 percent suffered a moderate TBI. (NHTSA)
  • Median hospital charges for motorcycle riders with severe TBIs are 13 times higher than the bill for riders who don’t have TBI. (NHTSA)
  • Nearly 5,000 people died in 2012 as a result of motorcycle accidents. One-hundred thirty of these fatalities were in Georgia. (NHTSA)

But TBI statistics may not be a major concern for victims and their families who are personally affected. Those who sustain a TBI may experience significant medical costs – such as hospital bills as one of the brain injury statistics above notes – and could require ongoing care. This can create financial burden for the victim and his or her family. Those wishing to recover compensation from an at-fault party should consult a lawyer.
