State-Specific Motorcycle Helmet Laws

Was a police report filed?
  • Almost every state has some variation of a motorcycle helmet law on the books -- either a "universal" helmet law requiring all riders and passengers to wear a helmet, or a more narrow statute that applies only to motorcycle riders and passengers under a certain age (like 21 or 18). In this section, we'll provide details on these state laws, and how they might impact a personal injury lawsuit. (For a  breakdown of scenarios involving helmet laws and injuries in motorcycle crashes, check out  How Helmet Laws and Helmet Use Affect Motorcycle Accident Cases.)
