If I was not Wearing a Helmet in a Motorcycle Accident, Can I Still Receive Damages?

Posted by: Personal Injury Attorney  

If I was not Wearing a Helmet in a Motorcycle Accident, Can I Still Receive Damages?Driving a motorcycle through the roadways of Southern California can be one of the most enlivening and relaxing experiences that a rider will ever go through.  Unfortunately, every single time that an individual gets on their bike, they are at serious risk for life-altering or even life-threatening injuries.  This is especially true for those that do not wear a helmet while riding, and these individuals will need our experienced motorcycle accident lawyer in Los Angeles by their side the moment that one of these collisions takes place.

 

Within the state of California, any number of parties can be found partially responsible for an accident.  In some instances, as many as a half dozen different groups have been found at fault and therefore responsible for a percentage of the damages.  This includes those that are currently riding without their helmet, an illegal act within the state of California for any riders on a motorcycle while on a public road.

If a rider is in fact severely injured and their injures were exacerbated by the fact that they were not using a helmet, they may be responsible for the increased cost of their medical bills.  If the other party was primarily at fault, the rider may still receive a percentage of compensation from the insurance company or the driver themself.

No matter how hopeless a situation may seem, no rider should ever attempt to take on the legal system or an insurance company on their own.  Our Los Angeles personal injury attorney is here to get every one of our clients compensation as quickly and efficiently as possible.
