Does it matter if I was wearing a helmet when I was injured in a bicycle accident in Florida?
Florida law requires bicyclists under the age of 16 to wear a helmet while on their cycle. If you or your child is injured in a bicycle accident in Florida the use of a helmet may or may not have an impact on your ability to recover damages. If you suffered injury to your leg or back the use or absence of a helmet would most likely have made no difference in the severity of your injuries. Because each bicycle accident claim is different it is best to talk to a Florida accident attorney to discuss your specific situation.
