Can I Still Sue If I Wasn’t Wearing a Bicycle Helmet?

Were you injured as a cyclist in New York and have questions about whether you can still sue if you weren’t wearing a bicycle helmet at the time? Watch this video by dedicated Long Island bicycle accident attorney Michaelangelo Matera to learn how we can help you recover compensation for your injuries. 


A client could definitely recover damages if they’re involved in a bicycle accident and are not wearing a helmet, though it certainly is advisable to wear a helmet whenever you’re operating your bicycle. Not having a helmet on, although it may have an impact on the amount of damages that are recoverable, does not in any way preclude a client from bringing a claim.
