Our motorcycle injury lawyer represents motorcyclists injured in Michigan motorcycle accidents. The injuries suffered in these accidents many of times result in very catastrophic injuries. Although, there are different views on whether or not helmets do protect the safety of the biker, we would like to share with you some interesting statistics reported by the Centers for Disease Control Prevention (CDC).
Motorcycle Accident Injuries and Helmet Facts

Helmets are estimated to prevent 41 percent of fatal injuries for motorcycle passengers.
Helmets saved over 1,800 rider’s lives in 2008
Benefits of Wearing A Motorcycle Helmet
Wearing a motorcycle helmet may or may not help prevent less serious injuries to the motorcyclist injured in the motorcycle accident; however, reports do show that there are benefits of wearing a motorcycle helmet. These benefits include:
Reduced risk of head injury by 69%
