Will not wearing a helmet affect my motorcycle accident claim in Florida?
People who come to us with motorcycle accident cases many times were not wearing their helmet and ask if that will affect the case. The answer is maybe. Florida statutes were changed years ago and basically provide that if you’re 21 years old and over, you don’t have to wear a helmet. Under different kinds of circumstances, you’re supposed to wear a helmet. Whether you’re required to or whether you are not required to, it can affect your case. When we speak to motorcycle riders, we tell them to make sure you wear your helmet. It’s safe. If you don’t, your injuries will be worse. A jury likely will understand that you were not wearing your helmet and may hold that against you. It can hurt your case. It won’t eliminate your case. Don’t think you don’t have a case simply because you were not wearing your helmet. If you’ve had such a case in northeast Florida or southeast Georgia, call us. We’ll sit down. We’ll go over those issues and all the other issues connected with your case and figure out how best we can help you.
