Motorcycle Accidents

According to the 2015 Traffic Safety Facts report by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there were approximately 4,976 motorcycle rider fatalities in the U.S., an 8% increase from the year before. An estimated 88,000 motorcyclists were injured in that same year, with most accident involving fixed objects, other vehicles, drunk drivers, and driver errors.

Unfortunately, defective parts played a factor in these motorcycle accidents.

Product Recalls

Federal motor vehicle safety standards set minimum performance requirements for vehicle parts that may affect a vehicle’s operations, including brakes, tires and motorcycle helmets. If the NHTSA discovers a defect, they can order the manufacturer to conduct a recall and contact anyone who may be impacted.

Below are a few of the most common motorcycle defects:

  • Brakes
  • Tires or wheels
  • Handlebar
  • Fuel line or tank
  • Engine

If a defect exists, manufacturers must contact all registered owners by mail and inform them of the steps to take to have their bikes repaired, at no cost to them.
