Helmets & Motorcycles
The Importance of Helmets
Wearing a helmet while riding is a vital action in promoting your safety and that of your passengers. Helmets have been proven to help protect against head injury, brain injury and in some cases, even death. Although you may still sustain injury, your chances of coming through an accident with reduced damage are much better if you are wearing a helmet. In fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates the effectiveness of preventing fatality to be such that in each 100 deaths caused by a motorcycle accident, 37 lives could have been saved if a helmet had been worn. If you have suffered injuries in a motorcycle accident, a Flint motorcycle accident lawyer may be able to help whether you were wearing a helmet or not.
Motorcycle Accident Attorney in Flint
While it is always of the utmost importance that you wear a helmet no matter the location, conditions or time of day, this is not a guarantee against injury. There are cases in which helmets may have design or manufacturing defects, or have been imperceptibly damaged before sale. At Michigan Biker Law, we have the knowledge to determine if this appears to be the case, and if so can investigate further. This will help to discover whether or not a liability seems to exist on behalf of the manufacturer or seller. A legal benefit to wearing a helmet is that a properly fitting, nationally approved helmet helps to show that you are a responsible rider. It also helps to demonstrate that any damage inflicted is due to the actions of the other party and the subsequent effects created. All of these factors may help in the pursuit of compensation.
Contact a Flint motorcycle accident attorney to fight for your right to compensation, whether or not you were wearing a helmet during your motorcycle accident.
