Getting accurate information starts by choosing a trusted source, and our West Virginia motorcycle accident lawyers are immersed in these laws on a daily basis.

west virginia motorcycle fatalitiesThe winding pathways and sharp drop-offs along U.S. Highway 33 between Harman and Seneca Rocks in Pendleton County make it one of the most dangerous sections of road in the state.

There are regular calls to enhance the safety features on that mountainous stretch. Increased reliance on GPS navigation has taken more and more truckers through this shortcut connecting Interstate 79 with Interstate 81. If you’re taking this scenic route, exercise considerable caution.

Data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration showed that Clay County had the highest rate of motorcycle fatalities per 100,000 in 2014 at 11.18, followed by Ritchie County (9.99) and Hampshire County (8.52).

Still, the number of fatal motorcycle accidents remains low—no county has had more than five in a single year since 2010. In West Virginia and most other states, riding safely is more about how you ride than where you ride.
