The Importance of Wearing a Helmet on a Motorcycle

The Cochran Firm's personal injury attorneys always urge motorcyclists to wear helmets when they enjoy their motorcycles. There is nothing in the world more important than your health and your safety.

Motorcycle accidents are always dangerous, but they're particularly devastating when the motorcyclist is not wearing a helmet. To ride a motorcycle without a helmet, even when doing so is legal in your state, is to put yourself in danger of a lethal injury, even if you do everything right.

There are legal reasons to wear a helmet as well. While laws vary by state, your helmet status at the time of the accident will likely have an effect on your ability to pursue compensation. You will still be able to file a suit if you were injured while not wearing a helmet, but an opposing personal injury attorney will likely argue that you sustained some injuries as a result of your own decisions.

So wear a helmet when at all possible. It could save your life, and it could make your pursuit of justice and compensation more successful.

If you've been hurt and need an experienced personal injury attorney, please contact The Cochran Firm today for a free consultation.
