Newer Helmets Can Halve Risk of Serious Injuries for Cyclists

Bloomberg News reports a study by Virginia Tech and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety examined how bike helmets can reduce concussions, finding that “Urban-style helmets – which have nearly solid covers with few vents – and those that haven’t adopted the latest anti-concussion technology were more than twice as likely to result in injuries.” Bloomberg reports that statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration show that there were 81,000 emergency visits in 2015 due to bike-related injuries, and 840 cyclists were killed in accidents involving motor vehicles in 2016, the highest figure since 1991.

From the news release of the American Association for Justice.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
