Fred T. Polacek
Providence, RI Motorcycle Accident Attorney
Fight For Compensation For Your Injuries
At the Law Offices of Fred T. Polacek we understand how devastating a motorcycle accident can be. Each year numerous campaigns are promoted to raise awareness on safe riding for motorcyclists and for other motorists to be on the lookout for motorcycles. Despite the actions to raise awareness on this issue accidents still occur due to oblivious drivers that share the road with motorcyclists.
According to the Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) in 2019 the highest number of fatal motorcycle accidents occurred in Providence County (3) followed by Washington County (3). And there was one each in Newport and Kent Counties. On a national scale 40 percent of motorcycle fatalities involved people not wearing helmets. Unfortunately, Rhode Island does not have a universal helmet law – state law only requires motorcycle operators under age 21 to wear a helmet. Additionally, all new motorcyclists, regardless of age, must wear a helmet for one year after the date their motorcycle license is issued (TITLE 31 Motor and Other vehicles CHAPTER 31-10.1 Special License for Motorcycles, Motor Scooters, and Other Motor Driven Cycles SECTION 31-10.1-4 § 31-10.1-4 Required equipment.).
