Motorcycle accidents are one of the most dreadful accidents you can suffer, especially if you’re not wearing a helmet. Cruising through open roads brings a freedom that many riders enjoy. Unfortunately, that sense of freedom comes with a risk. Head injuries are the leading cause of death in motorcycle accidents. Consequently, all motorcyclists need to wear helmets on the road. Although it is not a legal requirement in all states, wearing a helmet significantly reduces the risk of suffering from a severe brain injury in an accident. If a car driver or another motorcyclist was in the accident, you may need a personal injury lawyer in Sacramento.
In 2016, there were 5,286 motorcycle riders killed in traffic accidents, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), where 94% were riders, while 6% percent were passengers. Wearing a helmet is the best way to protect yourself while riding a motorcycle.
