Motorcycle Accident Statistics in Arizona
In Arizona, motorcycle crashes accounted for just over one percent of all vehicle crashes in the state in 2020. This might not seem like a large number of wrecks, but this comes out to over 2,000 motorcycle accidents that year. That’s at least 2,000 people who could have been hurt or suffered from other damages in those crashes.
According to the Arizona Department of Transportation’s 2020 crash report, here are the numbers of moto wrecks in our state that year:
- 161 fatal crashes, and 160 people killed
- 1,819 injury crashes, and 1,921 people injured
- 346 property damage only crashes
Of these crashes, most of the more dangerous crashes that caused injuries and death were in urban areas compared to rural areas. This could be because there are more intersections in urban areas, which are the most dangerous places for motorcyclists, as well as other vehicles.
When you look critically at these reported numbers, you can see that the number of injuries are significantly higher than the number of property damage only crashes. In crashes with more protection, like car accidents, property damage is more common. However, motorcyclists are more likely to suffer from injuries in their collisions, as shown by the data.
This means that you’ll likely need the help of a motorcycle accident lawyer after you’ve been hurt in a crash. At Buckingham & Vega Law Firm, we’ll help you financially recover from your wreck so that you can focus on your physical and emotional healing.
