Would It Make A Difference To The Case Whether Or Not The Person Wore A Helmet?
Wearing a helmet is obviously a very smart thing to do while riding a motorcycle; someone not wearing one could hurt a lot more and possible even die without one when they have an accident. If someone is riding a motorcycle, they should use every means necessary to protect themselves, just as they would if they were riding in a car and chose not to wear a seatbelt.
Not wearing a helmet doesn’t doom the case, especially if the injuries they received had nothing to do with their head, but it certainly is helpful if they are wearing a helmet.
Whether or not you were wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, you can sustain serious injuries. Contact our offices to speak with an experienced attorney about what types of compensation you may be eligible to receive.
