Motorcycle Accident Attorney New Orleans

Motorcycle Accident Attorney

Motorcyclists are the most vulnerable drivers on road.  According to The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, “More than 80 percent of all reported motorcycle crashes result in injury or death.”

A motorcycle itself provides no protection. Rather, it leads to severe injuries. Falling off a bike is one of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents.

A motorcycle accident can be severe. Riders basically have no protection against strong impacts. In fact, even a small accident can cause permanent injuries or death in worst cases. Broken bones, paralysis, brain injuries, and severed limbs are common in motorcycle accidents.

HELMET LAWS AND STATISTICS

 

  • Helmet use is extremely important. In fact, serious head injury is common among motorcyclists. According to the NHTSA, in 2015, motorcycle helmets saved 1,772 lives. Helmets are estimated to be 37 and 41 percent effective respectively in preventing fatal injuries to motorcycle and pillion riders.
  • Motorcycle helmets have a sturdy outer shell that distributes the impact of a force to protect the skull and prevents sharp objects from piercing through. The crushable inner liner reduces the severity of an impact by absorbing the external injury that may otherwise reach the head and brain. With the use of a helmet, the severity of head injuries is reduced significantly.
  • According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, 19 states and the District of Columbia had laws in the books requiring all motorcyclists to wear helmets as of April 2016. In another 28 states, only people under a specific age (mostly 17 to 20) were required to mandatorily use helmets. In Louisiana, it is required by law to wear a helmet while riding.

In another 28 states only people under a specific age (mostly between 17 and 20 years of age) were required to wear helmets. In Louisiana, it is the law to wear a helmet while riding.

A National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) study covering 10 states found that when universal helmet laws, which pertain to all riders, were repealed, helmet use rates dropped from 99 percent to 50 percent. In states where the universal law was reinstated, helmet use rates rose to above 95 percent. In 2014, 10 times more unhelmeted motorcyclists died (1,565) in states that did not have universal helmet laws than in states that had universal helmet laws (151 unhelmeted motorcyclist fatalities), according to a NHTSA report.
