Studies show that the head, arms and legs are most often injured in a motorcycle crash. Protective clothing and equipment serve a three-fold purpose for motorcyclists: comfort and protection from the elements; some measure of injury protection; and through use of color or reflective material, a means for other motorists to see the motorcyclist.
Although we are motorcycle lawyers, we are motorcyclists first. We believe every rider should have the right to choose what safety equipment, if any, they want to wear. That being said, we strongly encourage all of our clients and readers to use proper safety equipment to reduce the risk of motorcycle accidents and injury.
