Study Finds Helmets Protect More Than Just Bikers’ Heads

As the number of motorcycles on the roads increase, so do motorcycle accidents. A new study shows that bikers who use a helmet while riding not only protect themselves from possible head injury and trauma but are also safeguarded from face-related harm. Dr. Joseph Crompton, a surgeon from the University of California, who led the study, referred to the National Trauma Data Bank for information regarding the study and utilized hospitalization records of more than 46,000 bikers. The study showed that riders who wore helmets had a 60% less chance of suffering facial injury.
