I was injured in a Florida motorcycle accident, but I wasn’t wearing a helmet. Can I still recover damages from the other driver?
If you’re in a motorcycle accident, while you’re not wearing a helmet and it’s not your fault, you still can recover damages from the other person. In Florida, you’re not required to wear a motorcycle helmet. However, if it could be proven that not wearing the helmet caused you to have more severe injuries, then you can be charged with comparative negligence, which would reduce your award.
