- Motorcycle Drag Racing Injuries
The Arizona Department of Transportation reported 170,160 motorcycle registrations across the state, while there were 3,260 total accidents. These accidents accounted for 2,604 injuries and 145 total fatalities.
Motorcycle drag racing takes place when two motorcyclists line up at a drag strip with a starting line. Once these drivers are signaled to begin, they race an agreed upon distance to a finish line. The first person to reach this finish line is the winner.
As motorcycles are already dangerous vehicles to operate on our roadways, driving them at an increased speed and racing against another motorcycle instantly increases a chance of becoming injured. Of course, these injuries are less relevant in organized motorcycle drag racing events, as there is an increased amount of safety and medical staff on hand.
At Phillips Law Group, our Phoenix motorcycle accident attorneys believe that the when a person becomes injured as the result of the negligent actions of another person, that injured individual may be entitled to compensation for their losses and damages.

Consequences of Motorcycle Drag Racing
The national Highway Traffic Safety Administration has changed the definition on how they would track a crash involved in drag racing. In 2009, they would begin to determine this by identifying if one individual was charged with racing, the crash would be considered drag racing.
Some of the consequences of motorcycle drag racing include:
- Compound vehicle
- Insurance cancellation
- Insurance increase
- Jail time
- Reckless driving charges
- Speeding charges
While many illegal motorcycle drag racers are now using GPS systems, radios, and police scanners to identify motorcycle racing hot spots where police and law enforcement are not present, it has been increasingly difficult to catch these elusive and fast motorcycles.
Motorcycle Drag Racing Injuries
Driving motorcycles alone place the rider at an increased danger of becoming injured in an accident. However, when a motorcyclist decides to test their maximum speed limit against another rider, it greatly increases that individuals chance of becoming seriously injured in an accident, often resulting in permanent paralysis or death.
Some motorcycle drag racing injuries include:
- Broken bones
- Burn injuries
- Dental injuries
- Dislocated joints
- Loss of limb
- Nerve damage
- Orthopedic injuries
- Permanent paralysis
- Road rash
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Wrist injuries
If you have been injured by a motorcycle drag racer, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses and damages, and it is recommended to contact an established motorcycle accident attorney.

Liz was great
Two family members were in a bad wreck a couple of years ago, and as a result called Phillips Law to represent them. Montana Thompson was the attorney assigned to the case with the help of Nemo Farr as legal assistant. Mr. Thompson litigated a very generous settlement for both my stepdaughter and her son. Because my grandson is a minor, I decided to act as conservator for him to ensure the settlement was safe and secure. Montana helped with that process, but it was Nemo who went way above and beyond the call in finding a financial institution to use for the restricted account. There were some glitches in that process but Nemo helped navigate them with a calm expertise which belies his age. I would consider them both great representatives of the level of commitment to their clients and assets to their firm.
Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value As someone who is familiar with the inner workings of the auto insurance industry I can whole heartedly endorse Steven J. Jones and Phillips law group as someone I would want on my side should litigation take place. They handled my case professionally, honestly, and with satisfactory results which I would not have expected without enlisting their help.
The lawyers here are of top quality. Especially Trey Dayes, who was always respectful and hard-working.
Jon Jamieson was amazing to work with . He came through with all of his promises.
