I got hurt in a motorcycle accident, but I wasn’t wearing a helmet. Can I still pursue compensation?

Yes, but the amount of compensation might be affected, or even blocked, if the other driver’s lawyers can prove your injuries were worse because you weren’t wearing a helmet. The law in New York state is clear: All motorcycle drivers and passengers must wear a helmet and eye protection.

If you were seriously injured in an accident and were not wearing a helmet, you should speak with one of our knowledgeable attorneys right away to discuss your legal options.
