Bicycle accident attorneys have always encouraged parents to insist that their children wear helmets when riding their bikes to protect them when they wipe out or are struck by motorized vehicles. A recent study conducted by the Journal of Pediatrics clearly shows how important helmets are in saving kids lives. The objective of the study was to determine the correlation between bicycle helmet laws and bicycle accident-related deaths sustained by children struck by cars. Florida has a bike helmet law on the books, but parents don’t always enforce it with their kids.
