I was injured in a Florida motorcycle accident, but I wasn’t wearing a helmet. Can I still recover damages from the other driver?

Return to FAQ Videos


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.
