More than 6000 motorcyclists die annually across the United States due to fatal crashes. Here in the Garden State, we see countless victims left with fatal injuries due to auto accidents on our roadways.
Motorcyclists are particularly susceptible to fatal injuries during accidents because they lack sufficient protection. Even with helmets, the rest of their bodies remain completely exposed, making them highly vulnerable to severe and deadly injuries.
