Modern motorcycle helmets are built light, strong, and even affordably. Beyond just the obvious, here are three reasons why you need to wear your motorcycle helmet in the event of an Orange County motorcycle accident.
- It’s the law. The California motorcycle helmet law mandates that you cannot operate or ride on a motorcycle in the state without a helmet. Failure to wear your helmet, or even wear a helmet that is not up to spec, can result in a ticket.
- It’s common sense. Brain injuries can wreck your life. Helmets help prevent brain injuries. In fact, wearing a helmet gives you a much better chance of coming out of a motorcycle accident without serious injury, or in the case of a severe accident, coming out alive. Wearing a helmet makes sense.
- It helps with your case. If you or a loved one has been injured in an Orange County motorcycle wreck caused by a negligent driver, you may be eligible to recover damages for your medical bills and more. However, the insurance companies won’t just cut you a check. You may need to fight them in court, and the fact that you were not wearing a helmet will play poorly in your case.
