I was injured in a Florida motorcycle accident, but I wasn’t wearing a helmet. Can I still recover damages from the other driver?
If you’re injured in a motorcycle accident, but you weren’t wearing a helmet you can still recover damages. Florida law does not require that you wear a helmet if you carry insurance. So, the fact that you were not wearing a helmet is not going to bar your claim. If your injuries involved a head injury, then there will be some comparative fault or there will be an argument that there may have been comparative fault, but it’s not a bar to your claim. Always have a lawyer take a look at your case, and make sure you have a viable claim.
