What is the main cause of death in Washington motorcycle accidents?

Head and brain injury occurs in a large portion of motorcycle accidents and are the primary cause of death in most fatal motorcycle accidents.  This is not to say however, that all head injuries suffered by motorcyclists will be fatal.  The number of those who die as a result of a motorcycle accident are a small fraction of the total motorcycle injury accidents. That's why it is so important to wear a helmet and why Washington state law requires all motorcycle riders wear a helmet.
