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

I loaned my car to a friend who was involved in a Florida car accident. Am I liable if my friend was at-fault?

If I was hit by a commercial vehicle in a Florida car accident, is the employer of the other driver also responsible?

Yes, in Florida you are entitled to recover damages in a motorcycle accident even if you weren’t wearing a helmet. Under Florida law, you’re not required to wear a helmet unless you are under 21 years of age. However, Florida is a comparative negligence state, which means that a jury can reduce the amount of damages you’re awarded based on the percentage of fault that they consider you to be responsible for your own damages.
