Convincing Recent Study Could Entice Motorcyclists to Use Their Helmets

Experts In This Article

Motorcycle Helmet Study

According to a recent study done by the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, helmets have more benefit than protecting against head injuries. While this is crucial to protect against head traumas, many Orlando motorcyclists not obligated by the law to wear a helmet avoid doing so for a number of reasons.

One of the most common reasons found by the study is that the majority of bikers who chose not to wear a helmet usually had some level of intoxication. With alcohol in their blood stream, no matter how minimal, there is an increase in the risk of crashing and needing the helmet they chose not to wear.

If you are ever in doubt of whether or not to put on your helmet, here are a few of the ways the study found that you can save yourself from pain, injury, and high medical costs:

  • Lowered risk of fatalities
  • Lowered risk and severity of head injuries
  • Lower cost of medical treatments
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Reduced need for extended medical care
  • Lowered risk of long term disability

When injuries are not enough to persuade motorcyclists to put on their helmet, the high costs of injuries sustained in an Orlando motorcycle accident, combined with longer hospitalization times and necessity of longer term medical treatments, can sometimes be more convincing.
