May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month
At The Yost Legal Group, Baltimore, Maryland Accident and Personal Injury law firm, we advocate for the rights of injured motorcycle riders. Attorney Tom Yost himself is a huge motorcycle enthusiast.
We take rider safety extremely seriously, which is why it is so important to the attorneys at The Yost Legal Group to stress the importance of wearing a motorcycle helmet as bikers return to Maryland’s roads and highways this summer.
The most important thing a biker can do to protect themselves is to wear their helmet. Here are some statistics that illustrate the life-saving power of modern motorcycle helmets:
- Maryland is one of 19 states in the U.S that enforce mandatory helmet laws for all riders, regardless of their age.
- The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that the lives of 34 Maryland riders were saved by a motorcycle helmet in 2012 alone.
- Studies have shown that riders that wear a helmet are 29% less likely to be killed in an accident and 3x less likely to suffer a traumatic brain injury than riders who do not wear helmets.
May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month, and The Yost Legal Group is doing our part to bring attention to this important campaign by sharing some important facts and information about motorcycle helmets.
To highlight the importance of wearing a helmet, we took a look at how the motorcycle helmet has evolved and improved over time. Learn more about the evolution of the motorcycle helmet, and make sure you choose a helmet that is right for you before you get back on your bike this summer!
