If you were injured in a motorcycle crash without a helmet, you may be wondering if you can still recover compensation. Watch this video to find out.
Can I recover compensation for a motorcycle accident if I wasn’t wearing a helmet?
We were recently asked by a person who had been injured in a motorcycle wreck case whether they could recover damages for their injuries even though they had not been wearing a helmet. The answer is, potentially, yes. Under Georgia law, a person is required to wear a helmet when they are riding a motorcycle. However, the failure to wear a helmet does not automatically extinguish a personal injury claim. In that scenario, your own personal negligence in not wearing a helmet gets weighed against the negligence of the person who caused the accident. It’s important to investigate these claims from the beginning and preserve all necessary evidence to make sure that you can present that claim in the most effective manner.
If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident of any sort and you need help working through the claim, please give us a call so we can help you through the process.
