According to The Hurt Report, the failure of motorists to detect and recognize motorcycles in traffic is the predominate cause of motorcycle accidents. Whether an accident occurs as a result of a car making a right or left-hand turn, a u-turn, a lane-change, or rear ending a motorcycle, it is rarely the cyclist fault.

Motorcycles have the Same Right to the Road as Cars and Trucks
North and South Carolina clearly states that motorcycles are entitled to full use of a lane and no motor vehicle shall be driven in such a manner as to deprive any motorcycle of the full use of a lane. Nonetheless, many motorcycle accidents are caused by car drivers that fail to:
Recognize that motorcycles have equal rights to the road.
Follow traffic rules.
Yield the right of way.
Provide adequate cushion between their car and motorcycle.
See motorcycles in traffic.
The Hurt Report states that, the likelihood of injury is extremely high in these motorcycle accidents. Ninety-eight percent of the multiple vehicle collisions result in some kind of injury to the motorcycle rider. Forty-five percent result in serious injuries.
Helmet law or not, crivers of cars need to be more careful as more and more mortorcycles are introduced to our roads. Over 120,000 extra motorcycles on the road in the first six months of the year.(a record)
These are Moms, Dads, Sons, Daughters and Grandparents. Please pay attention, a helmet is still no match for your car.

No, just where my server connects. Are you really a greaser? A legal one? I spent a day in Mexico once long ago and a few days there 2 years ago. No wonder so many slide across the border, a real cesspool, the inhabitants are what floats.

This statistic is just like the other it does not show if the injuries where head injury related or not.
And you will not get a true answer on this because that type of injury is usually left out of the articles unless it is head injury.

A good helmet, not a novelty, is going to be a polycarbonate blend. Different materials are woven together to absorb impact. As the energy from impact is transfered over the entire helmet as opposed to just the point of impact. Of course you probably already knew that.
