We advise all motorcycle riders to wear a helmet while riding at all times and to have passengers wear one as well. In Arizona, riders and passengers under the age of 18 must wear a helmet. Although adults are not required to wear a helmet wearing one is the most effective way to protect against brain injuries and fatalities. Helmet use has been found to be 67% effective in preventing brain injuries and 37% effective in preventing death. If you do not wear a helmet and you are in an accident you are three times more likely to suffer from brain injuries. Not wearing a helmet could also hurt your case if you need to file a claim for compensation.
