Will Bad Economy Drive Down NH Motorcycle Accident Rates?

A recent article in the Detroit, Michigan news could have interesting ramifications for New Hampshire motorcycle accidents. The article cites a recent study showing fewer traffic crashes in 2008 than in prior years, citing the poor economy as a factor in fewer crashes. Unemployment and worries about fuel costs means that fewer drivers are on the road, which could partially explain the drop in crashes.

However, the interesting part of the article comes near the end, when the author states that motorcycle crashes rose slightly due to drivers choosing this mode of transportation in order to save fuel and defer the costs of vehicle ownership. If motorcycle accidents are truly on the rise, more and more individuals will be seeking the advice of experienced personal injury attorneys in New Hampshire as they struggle to deal with the physical, emotional, and financial consequences of motorcycle accidents.
