What Happens if I Wasn’t Wearing My Helmet?

You should always wear a helmet on your motorcycle. California law mandates that all motorcycle drivers, and passengers, must always wear a helmet on a motorcycle. If you are in a motorcycle accident and weren’t wearing a helmet at the time, you may be held partly responsible for your injuries.

However, California is known as a “comparative negligence state.” This means you can still seek and recover compensation for your pain, suffering, and injuries, even if you weren’t wearing a helmet during your accident. We have assisted many clients in the past with this situation.
