Facts about Motorcycle Accidents
In Ohio, all motorcycle riders under 18 are required to wear a helmet, as are riders with a “novice license.” However, helmets are only 37% effective for drivers and 41% effective for passengers in preventing fatal injuries. In 2011, 4,612 motorcyclists were killed, while 81,000 were injured nationwide. The risk is high for riders, and it’s vital that you go to an experienced and dedicated law firm to represent you if you are involved in a motorcycle accident.
