1 Helmet and ground surface information is based on information provided police and or coroners reports.

2 Safe Work Australia has designated a potential weight imbalance when the following factors are mentioned in coroners and police reports: more than one rider on bike, towing trailer, supplementary weight on bike (e.g. drums containing liquid chemicals). This is Safe Work Australia’s judgment only and does not necessarily represent any verdict handed down by a coroner.

3 Case status as listed on the National Coronial Information System as at 7 June 2013. Closed cases will not be updated.
