Choosing a Motorcycle Helmet

Traumatic head injury is the leading cause of death in motorcycle accidents, but wearing a helmet can significantly reduce that risk. In fact, helmet use may have been able to prevent 37 out of every 100 motorcycle fatalities.

While helmet use can help you in the event of an accident, it cannot prevent an accident from happening altogether. If you or someone you love has been involved in a motorcycle accident, you know that the results can be painful and tragic. You do have legal options for seeking the compensation that you deserve.

Motorcycle Fit

Not every motorcycle helmet is the same. The most important factor in choosing a helmet is ensuring that it is approved by the Department of Transportation. The Snell Memorial Foundation also ranks helmet safety for high-impact situations and can add another mark of safety to a helmet. The following considerations should be made when purchasing a motorcycle helmet:

  • Internal helmet size
  • Helmet comfort and fit
  • Inclusion or lack of facial coverage
  • Visibility
  • Ventilation
  • Weight
  • Helmet noise

Each of these factors affects your ability to focus on the road and enjoy your ride safely. Your helmet should never be a distraction.
