Motorcycle Injury Law Firm in Orange County

Using a helmet is perhaps one of the greatest steps a motorcyclist can take to reduce their risk of injury in a motorcycle accident. In fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that helmet use saved the lives of 1,829 motorcycle riders in 2008 alone. Furthermore, they estimate that an additional 832 lives could have been saved if the involved motorcyclists had been wearing a helmet. Experts believe that helmets are 37 percent effective in preventing fatal injuries to motorcycle riders and 41 percent effective for their passengers.

Wearing a Helmet Is Mandatory in California

While some motorcyclists wear helmets voluntarily, understanding the importance of their safety features, some will only wear them if required by law. Currently, only 20 states — including California — and the District of Columbia require all motorcycle riders to wear helmets. Another 27 states only require minors to wear helmets. Illinois, Iowa and New Hampshire do not have helmet laws.

All motorcycle helmets sold in the U.S. are required to meet minimum motorcycle safety standards, with some offering greater protection than others. A DOT-compliant helmet offers the most protection.
