Non-helmeted motorcycle accident victims at risk for TBIs

Motorcycle owners have the option of not wearing helmets in Hillsborough when they are cruising the streets. However, those who choose to forgo these safety devices are more likely to suffer from traumatic brain injuries than riders who wear them.

Unhelmeted motorcycle victims face huge medical costs

There is a dark side to motorcycle ownership that many people need to be aware of. Hillsborough residents who do not wear helmets can have larger medical bills than those who are using a helmet at the time of a crash. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention points out that health care costs are significantly higher when bikers without a helmet incur a brain injury. Unhelmeted motorcyclists are also charged at least 13 times more for medical care.
