Motorcycles accidents generally result in serious injuries to both drivers and riders. According to a study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motorcyclists are about 35 times more likely suffer a fatal accident than a passenger of a regular car.
However, injuries can be reduced or even prevented if drivers and riders take certain precautions. One of the best precautions is to wear a helmet. According to numerous studies, helmets reduce the chance of a fatal injury by nearly 40%. For this reason, many states across the country have passed laws requiring helmets for motorcyclists.
