Injured Without a Helmet
I Was Injured in a Florida Motorcycle Accident, but I Wasn’t Wearing a Helmet. Can I Still Recover Damages?
Yes, assuming the other driver was at fault for causing the crash or negligent and causing the underlying crash, yes, you can certainly make a claim and a recovery, even if you didn’t have a helmet on. Now, your claim or your recovery could be reduced by your comparative negligence for not having a helmet on assuming your injury was caused by not having the helmet on. The important thing to know is that yes, you can make a recovery if you didn’t have a helmet on but the claim could be limited or reduced by the failure to have the helmet on.
