Arizona motorcycle accident injuries can be severe. We can help
Arizona’s wide-open highways are ideal places to ride a motorcycle. Unfortunately, accidents happen. And when they do, motorcycle accident injuries in Arizona can sometimes be very severe, especially if the motorcyclist is not wearing a helmet. In Arizona, only people under 17 years old are required to wear a motorcycle helmet.
In 2011, there were 2,980 motorcycle accidents in Arizona, according to the state Department of Transportation. Of those accidents, 2,553 people were injured and 132 died that year in Arizona.
