Still recover damages if not wearing a helmet?

I was injured in a New York motorcycle accident, but I wasn’t wearing a helmet. Can I still recover damages?

If involved in a New York motorcycle accident and you weren’t wearing your helmet, you do have options. You can still recover money from the offending vehicle, but understand that there will be a defense that you failed to mitigate your damages by failing to wear a helmet. It’s important that you wear a helmet while riding a motorcycle, but it is not impossible to maintain an action if not wearing a helmet while operating a motorcycle.

You may be entitled to a settlement. Don't wait until it's too late
