I Wasn't Wearing My Helmet at the Time of My Motorcycle Accident. Will I Have a Valid Claim?
Georgia law requires motorcycle operators and their passengers to wear helmets that meet the minimum standards set forth by the Georgia Department of Public Safety. But you and your passenger are not barred from making a personal injury claim just because you weren’t wearing your helmets. The key factor will be in establishing the negligence of the other party and then determining whether your failure to wear the helmet directly contributed to your injuries.
