For starters, the helmet law requirements vary from state to state. In RI, if you are under 21 years of age or have had your motorcycle license for less than a year, you are required to wear a helmet. Passengers are required to wear a helmet at all times. In MA, all drivers and riders of motorcycles, by law, must wear helmets. If you were involved in a motorcycle crash as the result of another vehicle’s negligence and you were not wearing a helmet, our law firm would argue on your behalf that not wearing a helmet even when required to do so by law has no bearing as to the negligence or value of your personal injury case.
