Do mandatory helmet laws reduce fatalities for motorcyclists?

Motorcyclists throughout the country may not experience any hotter debate than the arguments for and against mandatory helmet laws. As many of our readers most likely know, Georgia is one of the states that have laws making it mandatory for all motorcycle riders and passengers to wear a helmet at all times. There are 18 other states that do so as well. But, the big question when it comes to these laws is, "Do mandatory helmet laws reduce fatalities for motorcyclists?"

That was, unfortunately, the result of a reported accident that occurred in nearby Polk County.

When negligence results it the loss of a loved one in Georgia

"Tragedy" is a word that is, unfortunately, being used all too frequently in America these days. It seems like President Obama is ordered flags to be flown at half-mast almost every other month because of a tragedy that plays out in some part of the country. As Americans we all grieve during these national tragedies, but it can be easy to overlook the fact that every day in this country there are families experiencing their own personal tragedies. A fatal car crash probably takes place every day in America, leaving a family grieving over the loss of a loved one.
