Q: I am about to go to a bike rally in Missouri and want to have the best helmet possible to stay protected on my ride to and from the event. What should I look for when purchasing a bike helmet to keep me protected in case of a Missouri motorcycle accident?

A:

Motorcycle helmets are one of the most critical pieces of safety gear you can own as a rider. Because your body is so exposed to trauma while you ride, protecting the most fragile and vital part of your body in case of a collision is crucial to lowering your risk of serious injury or fatality.

Choosing the right helmet is an important decision. Here are some factors to consider as you shop:

  • Look for the DOT certification. If a helmet meets the strict safety standards of the U.S. Department of Transportation, it will have a DOT certification sticker or tag. These are the helmets that provide you the most protection.
  • Find a lightweight helmet. If you are riding out of town to a rally—or for any extended period of time—you will want a lightweight helmet. This can still keep you protected without weighing on your neck causing fatigue.
  • Choose the perfect fit. The way your helmet fits is important. If a car hits you, having a helmet that is too big can cause the helmet to fly off and it will not be able to do its job. Try on a variety of shapes and sizes to find the perfect fit for your head. Naturally, this also means you should not buy or use second-hand helmets,

Helmets are crucial safety gear. If you were hurt in a motorcycle accident in Missouri, you deserve to be compensated for your injuries. Contact a Missouri motorcycle crash lawyer today at Price and Randle LLC by calling 888-573-2670 to learn more about how we can help you.
