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

You can still recover damages from the other driver if you’re injured in a motorcycle accident, yet you were not wearing a helmet. It’s extremely important for every motorcycle rider to wear a helmet. However, if you do not, Florida is a comparative fault state. It is up to the jury to determine the percentage of fault attributed to the at-fault party and also what types of percentage of fault you might carry for failing to wear your helmet. Just because you didn’t wear a helmet doesn’t mean you can’t obtain justice.
