Wearing a Helmet for Motorcycle Safety

Proper helmet use by motorcyclists can help prevent injuries and fatalities and can also decrease the cost of medical care in the event of an accident. Although they cannot provide full protection in every situation, helmets are designed to protect a rider’s head during a crash impact and can reduce injuries and fatalities.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident due to the negligence of another party, you may be entitled to legal compensation for your suffering. Contact the Iowa motorcycle accident lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C. at (515) 705-0233 to discuss your legal options.
