Injured in a Motorcycle Accident Without a Helmet
Can I sue for damages if I wasn’t wearing a helmet in my motorcycle accident?
In Florida, when you?re driving you will often notice someone on a motorcycle. They may not be wearing a helmet ? you?re not always required to. If you?re on a motorcycle and involved in a motorcycle accident, I obviously recommend that you wear a helmet. It?s for your safety. If you?re making a claim for injuries that somebody caused to you while you were on your motorcycle, and they?re telling you that you weren?t wearing a helmet and shouldn?t be compensated, you need to keep in mind that there are many ways around this.
Are you even claiming head injuries? If you?re not claiming head injuries, and you didn?t hit your head, why does it matter if you were wearing a helmet? These are the things that we can help you with. Obviously, if you?re involved in a motorcycle accident, take pictures. Make sure you go see a doctor; you need to document your injuries, and you need to start the healing process. You need to make sure you contact a lawyer that?s got the experience in motorcycle accident cases, too.
