Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Louisiana Motorcycle Crash Statistics

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), motorcycle fatalities accounted for 14% of all motor vehicle crash deaths in 2020. In Louisiana, motorcycle accidents are a significant concern, with the state recording over 90 motorcycle fatalities annually. Understanding these statistics underscores the importance of protective measures and comprehensive insurance coverage.

States with No Helmet Laws

Some states have relaxed helmet laws, allowing riders the option to ride without a helmet. For example, Illinois and Iowa have no helmet laws, while states like Texas and Florida have partial laws requiring helmets only for riders under a certain age or with less insurance coverage. However, riding without a helmet significantly increases the risk of severe head injuries and fatalities in crashes.

In Louisiana, all motorcycle riders are required by law to wear helmets. This mandate aims to reduce the severity of injuries and fatalities. However, riders injured without a helmet may still make claims and file a lawsuit if necessary to recover insurance from their injuries. If you are involved in a motorcycle accident in Louisiana, several remedies are available:

Navigating insurance claims can be complex, especially when dealing with severe injuries and multiple parties. Consulting with an experienced motorcycle accident attorney can help ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.
