What you need to do after a car accident

Car accidents are a lamentable regularity for drivers. In fact, an article by Forbes estimates that the average American will be involved in three or four accidents in their lifetime, a traffic collision roughly every 17.9 years.

Over 6 million car accidents happen annually and 3 million accidents result in injuries. In the U.S. more than 90 people die in fatal car accidents each day. Not only are accidents deadly, they are expensive. The average insurance claim for an injury accident claim is $23,450.

Will self-driving cars reduce motorcycle accidents, too?

Most industry experts believe it is only a matter of time until the majority of cars on the road are autonomous, or self-driving. Tech companies, carmakers and others have invested over $80 billion and counting in self-driving vehicle technology.

Some skepticism remains, of course. It is hard to put your life in the hands of new technology. And in the case of motorcycle riders, part of the fun is having control over the machine. Many riders may be reluctant to give up control of the bike. It is likely one of the reasons why carmakers are focusing on sedans and commercial vehicles; the market for those vehicles is likely higher, at least initially, than for motorcycles.
