If I was not wearing a helmet during my accident, do I lose my right to file a lawsuit?
There is a helmet law in the state of Wisconsin. Under this helmet law, riders under the age of 18 or riders with a learning license are legally required to wear a helmet while riding. Therefore, if you were under the age of 18 or had a learner’s permit at the time of the accident and were not wearing a helmet, your case could be more complicated. A skilled attorney can help refocus the attention of the case back on another motorist’s negligent actions if they caused the accident, as opposed to the fact that you were not wearing a helmet.
