Can I Collect A Financial Recovery For My Injuries Even Though I Wasn’t Wearing A Motorcycle Helmet?
In Florida, motorcycle helmets are not required if you have a minimum of $10,000 in medical insurance coverage and you are 21-years-old or older. However, wearing a motorcycle helmet can help protect you from serious brain injuries, spinal cord injury, head trauma, and it can reduce your chances of suffering brain damage and permanent disabilities.
Although Florida law does not require you to wear one, it is wise to wear a helmet on every ride to help reduce your chances of suffering a serious injury. If the motorcycle accident caused you injuries, regardless if you had a helmet on or not, you may be entitled to a financial recovery.
Not wearing a motorcycle helmet does not bar you from collecting financial compensation for your injuries in the crash. If you are injured and sought medical care following your wreck, you should be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, physical therapy, rehabilitation, lost income, pain and suffering and more.
In order to find out what compensation you may be entitled to after your South Florida motorcycle accident, you should talk with Broward County accident attorney David Benenfeld at 954-677-0155 and get your questions answered in a free consultation.
