Helmets Save Lives
A reminder from the RI motorcycle accident attorneys at The Bottaro Law Firm: Wear your helmet every time you ride your motorcycle. The statistics don’t lie. Helmets save lives! Do your part to educate your loved ones. Wear your helmet and encourage family and friends to do so as well.
Head injury is the leading cause of death in motorcycle crashes. Compared to those wearing a helmet,
- a motorcyclist not wearing a helmet is 40% more likely to die of a head injury.
- a motorcyclist not wearing a helmet is 15% more likely to suffer a nonfatal injury.
Helmets reduce the likelihood of a crash fatality by 37%.
