That depends on the injuries you received. California has a mandatory helmet law, and it is illegal to ride a motorcycle without one. If you weren’t wearing a helmet and suffered serious head injuries, that will be held against you by the defendant and you may not receive any compensation for your injuries. However, if your injuries are such in which case a helmet would not have made a difference, you may still have a strong case. You should always wear a helmet when you ride a motorcycle. It’s the smart thing to do.
