How to Choose a Motorcycle Helmet

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that motorcycle helmets saved 1,829 motorcyclists' lives in 2008, and that 823 more could have been saved if all motorcyclists had worn helmets.Motorcycle accidents can be fatal, especially if you aren't wearing a helmet, or didn't choose a helmet that fits you properly. Here are three tips on how to correctly choose a motorcycle helmet: 

  • Choose one up to industry standards: It's important to make sure your helmet is up to the Department of Transportation (DOT) or Snell industry standards. If your helmet has a DOT or Snell stamp on it, it means it has undergone testing and been approved to protect you as it says it should.

  • Pick the right size: When choosing a motorcycle helmet, try on a few sizes to find one that fits. When trying one on, the entire interior liner should come in contact with your head. Try shaking your head back and forth to make sure the helmet doesn't move around. If you can remove the helmet easily, it's most likely too big. If your nose or chin touches the face-shield, it's too small. Make sure that your helmet is snug, but not uncomfortable.

  • Choose one based on the riding you do: There are many great helmets, but it's important to choose one that matches your motorcycle needs. If you are doing long rides, you should pick a helmet with advanced features that help you enjoy wearing it for long periods of time. If you are doing short rides, you can go without some of the extra bells and whistles.

The most important thing to remember is always wear your helmet when riding your motorcycle, to avoid serious, life-threateningmotorcycle accidents. Even if you are careful when riding your motorcycle, others might not be. If you or a loved one were the victim of a Texas motorcycle accident, you deserve justice and compensation.Contact Texasmotorcycle accident attorneys at the Kyle Law Firm today and set-up your free, no-obligation consultation.
