>Mitchell Proner: “Different states have different laws regarding motorcycle helmet use. Whether or not you are wearing a motorcycle helmet may at times have an effect on the amount of recovery that you are entitled to, but other times it won’t affect the amount of recovery you’re entitled to whatsoever.”

>Mitchell Proner: “Depending on the individual facts of the case even if you are breaking the law in your individual state by not wearing a helmet you may still be entitled to a substantial compensation depending on the individual facts of your accident.”

>>Mitchell Proner: “By consulting with a skilled attorney you can hopefully maximize the amount of recovery that you are entitled to financially with the party that is at fault for the accident regardless whether or not if you are wearing a helmet.”
