New York Motorcycle Accident Injury Statistics

Motorcycle crashes are among the most deadly types of traffic collisions in New York City. According to a report issued by the NYC Department of Transportation, motorcycles make up only 2 percent of all registered vehicles in the city, yet they account for 14 percent of all fatal motor vehicle accidents. The New York Department of Motor Vehicles reports that there were a total of 180 fatal motorcycle accidents in 2010, along with 4,747 that resulted in some form of injury. Statistically, a motorcycle rider’s chance of dying in an accident is 18 times greater than the risk of death for an automobile occupant.

According to statistics provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the following injuries are those that are most often sustained in serious motorcycle accidents.

  • Leg and foot injuries: 30 percent
  • Head and neck injuries: 22 percent
  • Torso injuries: 20 percent
  • Arm and hand injuries: 18 percent
  • Shoulder injuries: 8 percent

Other common injuries include broken or crushed limbs, skin abrasions (road rash), traumatic brain injury, and paralyzing spinal cord injuries such as paraplegia and quadriplegia. Motorcycle accidents often end in fatalities, as well.
