Everyone should have an actual helmet. Full face will also protect your teeth and jaw. Whatever you get should have a face shield to keep dirt and bugs out of your eyes.
Shortly after the accident I was thinking along the same lines, believe me. My new helmet will be a DOT approved motorcycle helmet. May as well be, all things considered. My old bike helmet was very good for what it was, probably one of the best, and certainly better than nothing at all. But I think I will go for an upgrade anyway.
