What Should Motorcyclists Watch Out for when Buying a Helmet?

By Breyer Law Offices on November 8, 2010

Arizona motorcycle accidents often lead to major head injuries that can be fatal or disable the victim for life. In Arizona, riders are only required to wear a helmet only if they are under the age of 18. However, it has been consistently proven that wearing a helmet greatly increases survival rates among motorcycle accident victims. Helmets also significantly reduce the likelihood of the rider suffering a traumatic brain injury. If you are going to ride a motorcycle in Arizona, it is in your best interest to purchase a helmet and to ride with caution.

There is no point in getting a helmet if you are not going to get one that will properly protect you. Any motorcycle helmet you use should have a Department of Transportation (DOT) sticker on the back. This is proof that the helmet has been tested and that it will function properly in the event of an Arizona motorcycle accident.

There are many different types of motorcycle helmets, but only some of them may work properly for you. There are several steps you can take to make sure you buy the right motorcycle helmet. Make sure you find a helmet that fits snugly and one that remains stable when you shake your head back and forth. Full-face helmets should grip the top of your head and your jaw and cheeks. Remember that sizes differ between companies, so it is important to try on a helmet and to really test it out before purchasing it. Put the helmet on your head, strap it snugly to your chin and then grab the rear of the helmet and try to remove it. If the helmet does not come off then it is the right helmet for you.
