Motorcycle Helmet Safety Our Goal: Winning & Winning Big

Motorcycle Helmet Safety

Accident Lawyer Serving the Injured Nationwide

In 2006, 4,935 motorcycle riders were killed riding motorcycles. Motorcycles remain of the most fuel efficient and cost-effective modes of transportation and they are here to stay. With the current economic climate, more and more people are turning towards motorcycles as an economical way to travel. Unfortunately, a substantial amount of motorcycle accidents are caused by driver negligence on behalf of the motorist. A motorcyclist can be doing everything right and he or she can still be struck by another driver who fails to see them. If you were involved in a motorcycle collision, you should seek the advice of a Houston auto accident attorney as soon as possible.

Motorcycle Accidents and Helmet Use

Studies have proven that the use of a motorcycle helmet is the single critical factor in the prevention and reduction of head injuries. To date, there has not been any link to helmet use and accident causation. Helmets do not reduce critical traffic sounds and they do not limit the rider's visual field. Motorcycle riders who are involved in accidents show a significantly lower head and neck injury for all types of injuries and at all different levels of severity. Furthermore, the full facial helmet increases protection, thus significantly reducing facial injuries.

The state of Texas requires riders under the age of 21 to wear a motorcycle helmet, whereas riders above the age of 21, helmet use is optional as long as they have taken a motorcycle safety and training course and has proof of health insurance. In Texas, not wearing a helmet is considered a secondary offense, meaning a police officer cannot pull you over solely for the reason to see if you have medical insurance, completed the safety course, and are above the age of 21.

How the Doan Law Firm Can Help

Although helmets are not required for motorcycle riders above the age of 21 in Texas, the law doesn't change the fact that wearing a helmet can significantly reduce your chances of sustaining traumatic brain injuries, and increase your chances of surviving a serious accident. Regardless if you were wearing a helmet or not, if you were injured in a motorcycle accident due to someone else's negligence, you should contact an attorney from The Doan Law Firm. When motorcyclists are injured as a result of the carelessness, or recklessness of another driver, they have a right to seek monetary compensation for their injuries. Contact the firm to schedule our no-obligation consultation where an attorney can review the details of your case and give you direction from there.
