Below are some motorcycle accident statistics that have been provided by the firm to encourage motorcyclists and drivers to be safe while out on the road:

  • Each year, motorcycle accidents lead to thousands of fatalities in the United States. In 2015, it is reported by the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration that 4,976 people died during motorcycle accidents.
  • In 2015, the majority of people who died during motorcycle accidents were over the age of 40.
  • Statistics prove that when people wear helmets and protective riding gear, they significantly reduce their chance of being injured if they are involved in a collision with another motor vehicle.
  • According to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration, motorcyclists that do not wear helmets are 40% more likely to suffer a fatal head injury if involved in an accident. Only 15% of riders who do not wear helmets will sustain non-fatal injuries if involved in an accident.
  • Of all injuries, head injuries are the leading cause of death for those involved in motorcycle accidents.
  • The National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration also reports that wearing a helmet can reduce a person's chance of dying during a motorcycle accident by 37%.
  • The University of Southern California conducted a study of 3,600 participants and discovered that wearing a helmet is the single most important factor in surviving a motorcycle accident.
  • In 2015, the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration reported that 88,000 people were injured during motorcycle accidents in the United States.

Types of Motorcycle Injuries

Once motorcyclists have been involved in accidents, it is not surprising that they can be seriously injured. In fact, the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration reports that each year, thousands of people are injured after being involved in motorcycle accidents.

After a motorcycle accident has occurred, people may escape with minor injuries, or they may leave the accident in critical condition. Motorcycle accidents are responsible for countless head injuries, brain injuries, back injuries and spinal cord injuries every year. Injuries like these demand pervasive medical treatment and in some cases, sufferers may learn that their injuries are permanent, which means they will never have the quality of life they once had.

Why You Need a Motorcycle Injury Lawyer

People who have been injured during motorcycle accidents owe it to themselves to have their cases reviewed by a skilled personal injury lawyer, especially when they have strong suspicions that their accidents were caused by third party negligence. In some cases, people may be eligible for filing personal injury claims, which would allow them to seek monetary damages from negligent parties. Damages may cover things like medical bills, lost income and property damage and may also cover things like pain, suffering and emotional trauma. While money cannot rid people of their injuries, it can make their recovery process a little bit easier and less overwhelming.

The Palm Spring motorcycle accident lawyers at Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. are highly trained in both personal injury and motorcycle accident law.

Recent Reviews & Testimonials

  • Cohn & Swartzon helped me to receive greatly needed medical care.

    “I was recently hurt in a really bad car accident. I did not have health insurance but Cohn & Swartzon helped me to receive greatly needed medical care. They also helped me get a replacement car quickly so that my wife could continue to drive to work while I was at home, getting better. I could not have done it alone, and I am very grateful to them.”

  • I would highly recommend Cohn & Swartzon to anyone in need of honest, knowledgeable, and hard fighting attorneys.

    “It was such a pleasure to be represented by Cohn and Swartzon recently. I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of honest, knowledgeable, and hard fighting attorneys. After a car accident which involved numerous injuries, I couldn't handle the stress of dealing with insurance companies. They completely took over for me. They negotiated with the insurance companies and as a result of their determination, I received a very fast and fair settlement. All during this process, they kept me updated on all the proceedings, always returned my phone calls promptly and answered any questions I had. The entire staff at Cohn and Swartzon were always courteous and helpful. Thank you ever so much!”


  • He was always available and always returned my phone calls.

    “It is my pleasure to recommend the law firm of Cohn & Swartzon. I was recommended to Jason through an attorney friend of mine who suggested that I see him because of the sensitivity of my case. I met with him and instantly saw the compassion and professionalism that was instilled in him. He took on my case which was an emotional and difficult one. He handled us with care, step by step, and I watched him fight hard in court and win. He was always available and always returned my phone calls. He was always straightforward and kept us in the loop. He was very informative. I will never forget what he did for our family. Two years later, I had another emergency occur in our family and he returned my call that evening and again took care of everything. I have recommended Cohn & Swartzon to family and friends and will continue to do so. They were there for my family when I needed them and the professionalism and expertise says it all.”

  • They made me feel comfortable.

    “I was in a car accident that resulted in injuries, time off of work, and repeated visits to medical providers. I sought the assistance of Cohn & Swartzon to assist me in recovering my lost wages and help with paying my medical bills. The firm was so friendly and really educated me about how auto insurance and medical insurance works when you're involved in an accident. They made me feel comfortable with the process and more importantly I never had to deal with negotiating with the insurance companies for any of my medical bills. I was able to recover my lost wages, my medical expenses were paid in full, and I received a very good recovery for my pain and suffering. I have definitely recommended this law firm to family and friends many times and they all have been pleased with their service, knowledge and expertise.”

  • They were completely honest, and offered great advice.

    “I highly recommend Cohn & Swartzon. When I decided to retain the Firm, I initially spoke with Attorney Jason D. Cohn. He was very knowledgeable and helpful in explaining what sort of personal injury case to expect. With the assistance of Attorney Saar Swartzon, Cohn & Swartzon were able to get me a $28,000 settlement. I was very pleased with the Firm's persistence and hard work. The attorneys always kept me informed about how my case was going, they were completely honest, and offered great advice. They listened to my concerns and needs, and always made me feel like I was a high priority client. Everyone at the Firm is very friendly and caring, both as one's legal representation, and simply as individuals. Thanks again!”
