In Miami, the Perazzo Law Firm shares insight for understanding the different types of motorcycle helmets available and how they protect you in the event of a motorcycle accident.

A helmet is a motorcycle rider’s best friend and should always be worn when riding no matter what. It is the only thing protecting your head from severe and sometimes permanent injury. Thus, purchasing a quality helmet and understanding how they work in the event of a motorcycle accident is fundamental. Much in the same way a baseball player chooses which glove to buy, a motorcycle rider must choose the helmet that best fits his/her head and budget. There are many different types of helmets which come in different styles and with different price tags. Obviously, the more expensive the helmet, the better the quality and chances of reducing the injuries sustained after a motorcycle accident. Since the human head is the heaviest part of the body, it is only natural that this part of the body will strike the ground with the most impact and usually first. Thus, making sure the helmet fits properly and is strapped onto the head tightly is vital to guarantee it does what it’s meant to do, protect your brain. According to statistics, motorcycle helmets save an average of 2,000 lives per year and could have saved over 1,000,000 lives had they been worn by riders involved in accidents.

It’s important to highlight that the lifespan of a motorcycle helmet is five years, that’s if it hasn’t suffered impact or been damaged as a result of a motorcycle accident. It may be difficult to understand why the helmet has a lifespan but it simply comes down to the materials used to manufacture the interior and exterior of the helmet. The materials used to manufacture helmets include polycarbonates or fiberglass, which begin to deteriorate after time. Also, the interior linings begin to wear and lose their effectiveness. Though it may seem like a waste to toss your favorite helmet, it is highly recommended to guarantee maximum protection in the event of a motorcycle accident in which your head hits the ground hard. If in doubt, check the DOT expiration date to check when your helmet expires. The helmet will begin to get old as soon as the rider places it on his/her head and exposes the helmet to the natural elements such as sunlight, wind, and rain. The Miami motorcycle accident lawyer, Jonathan Perazzo, personal injury attorney and founder at the Perazzo Law Firm, has vast experience striving to be the best motorcycle accident lawyer for his motorcycle accident clients and families. Among the bodily injuries incurred by motorcycle accident victims, the head area is the only part of the body that can be protected after a collision or fall. Though elbow and knee pads might prevent cuts and abrasions, the helmet protects the brain from long-term injuries that can greatly diminish the motorcycle accident victims quality of life, and lead to a devastating array of physical disorders and pain.

MIAMI CAR ACCIDENT LAWYER SHARES INFORMATION ON CAR ACCIDENTS INVOLVING ROAD SERVICE VEHICLES AND OTHER MOTORISTS

Many times, motorists have to pull over to the side of the highway and wait for a road service vehicle. While this may seem safe, it is in fact a potentially dangerous moment given the speeds at which other motorists are driving. When combined with poor weather conditions or poor visibility, the chances of an accident always increase. Though some motorists may be able to change a flat tire, many cannot, and very few drivers will be able to repair a busted radiator or replace a dead battery on the highway. When the vehicle is beyond repair by the driver, the only option is to request a road service and wait. However, the wait can be deadly if special precautions are not taken by the driver and its occupants. In Miami, the personal injury staff of car accident lawyers, understand accidents that occur while waiting for a tow truck or mechanic to help them get their vehicle off the highway. In most cases, other drivers will not notice vehicles stopped on the shoulder of a highway or side of a road, and when this happens, rear-end collisions are very common. It’s a known fact that drivers are very often operating vehicles while using their cellphones to read or write text messages. In fact, texting and driving is now the second most common cause of car accidents, with the first cause of car accidents being drinking and driving. Sometimes, drunk driving together with texting and driving make for a deadly combination. The Perazzo Law Firm has handled numerous cases in which drivers are crashed into while waiting for road service because they are simply not detected in time by distracted or drunk drivers.
