Fatal Motorcycle Accidents in Idaho

Ada Co, ID - George Simitzes Identified in Fatal Collision on Knox Ave

An accident can rapidly transform a carefree motorcycle ride into a tragedy. Over the last several years, the Idaho Transportation Department reported that 1,759 motorcycle wrecks occurred in Idaho, leading to 121 fatalities and 1,426 injuries. Idaho was the site of 356 motorcycle incidents in one recent year alone, which claimed the lives of 23 individuals and caused 297 injuries.

A motorcycle collision often ends in serious, sometimes permanent, injuries that have far-reaching consequences for an individual's life. Tragically, and even more frequently, motorcyclists die in collisions, leaving their devastated families to pick up the pieces of their lives.

Idaho adheres to the conventional fault-based system in determining liability for monetary losses and damages arising from motor vehicle collisions, which also encompasses motorcycle accidents. In Idaho, a comparative negligence system determines liability for a motorcycle accident. Each person involved in the accident has ascribed a percentage of culpability in accordance with their conduct preceding the incident. The percentage in question establishes the monetary compensation that an individual is entitled to receive in return.
