Not every accident is the same. For instance, the types of vehicles involved will increase the likelihood of injury. Similarly, the use of various types of vehicles affects the likelihood of injury which may cause an emotional impact for you and your loved ones. Statistically, motorcyclists are about 37% more likely than passenger car occupants to die in traffic crashes and 9 times more likely to be injured in an accident compared to vehicle drivers. Additionally, every 16 minutes, a person is killed or seriously injured in accidents involving large trucks such as:18-wheelers, tractor-trailers or semi-trucks; making one out of every eight traffic fatalities a trucking collision.
