Motorcycle Crash Deaths Mean High Costs for New Hampshire Families

The loss of a loved one in a motorcycle accident imposes an immeasurable mental and emotional toll on the families left behind, as everyone who has lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident knows. However, these accidents also impose financial costs on families.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 34 New Hampshire motorcyclists lost their lives in crashes in 2005, the last year for which data is available. The average cost of these bikers’ last medical bills alone amounted to $10,861 per person – a total cost for one year of $369,000. These costs include the costs of rescue workers, transportation to a hospital, and emergency room, intensive and inpatient care for what are often severe injuries.

Medical bills can be steep, but the amount of money lost when a family member dies in a motorcycle crash is even higher. The CDC estimates that work-loss costs per person in 2005 were, on average, $1,074,712 in New Hampshire. This number represents the money that would have been earned to pay for a home, education, retirement or other important family milestones, if the fatal accident had not intervened.

While an award of compensation can’t restore a lost loved one to life, it can help families meet the heavy financial costs that come with a fatal motorcycle accident.
