I was injured in a Florida motorcycle accident, but I wasn’t wearing a helmet. Can I still recover damages from the other driver?

“Yes. The helmet would affect if you had a head injury and I think it would take away some of a head injury damages as a contributory negligence. But that same example, I often have clients that have a foot injury. If they have a foot injury whether or not they have a helmet on or not has nothing to do with whether their foot would have been injured. So, simple answer is yes. “
