In Michigan, about 114 motorcyclists die and another 3,020 motorcyclists are injured in Michigan motorcycle accidents every year. In a crash, a helmet can help protect your brain, your face, and your life.
When you are in an accident, a helmet plays an important role in keeping you safe. A helmets main purpose is to absorb the force of impact to your head. The more impact-energy absorbed, the less there is to reach your head and cause serious damage.
Although helmet safety laws are different from state to state, it is important to always wear a helmet. When you don't wear a helmet, you are leaving yourself open to serious injury, ranging from mild scratches and bruises, to more severe head injuries and even death.
Even though a helmet is the best protective gear you can wear while riding a motorcycle, you may still be injured after a Michigan motorcycle accident. If you are injured, you should speak with an experienced Michigan motorcycle attorney immediately to find out about your rights.
