How Does Florida’s Motorcycle Helmet Law Affect You?

Damian Mallard, Esq.
Board Certified Sarasota Personal Injury Attorney

http://www.mallardlawfirm.com/ Have you heard that Florida doesn’t have a motorcycle helmet law in place? Whether you have heard the rumors or you have seen another motorcyclist cruising down the road without a helmet on, you need to find out about Florida’s helmet law firsthand before you take to the streets without a helmet.

Whether you live in Florida and just bought a motorcycle or you are visiting the Sunshine State, you may assume that you don’t have to wear a motorcycle helmet when riding a motorcycle. However, riders under the age of 21 have to wear a motorcycle helmet at all times. For those riders 21-years-old and older, a helmet is not required so long as they have health coverage. While there is not a mandatory motorcycle helmet law in place in our state, it is wise for motorcyclists to protect themselves from motorcycle accident injuries by wearing helmets.

If you have been injured in a motorcycle crash whether you did or didn’t have a helmet on, you should seek the advice of a personal injury lawyer. An attorney at the Mallard Law Firm will be pleased to answer your questions in a free initial consultation. Contact us today at 888-409-3805 or online at http://www.mallardlawfirm.com/contact.cfm.
