Do You Have To Wear A Motorcycle Helmet In New York?

New York has strict laws regarding the use of helmets while riding motorcycles. The state requires all riders and passengers to wear helmets that meet the safety standards set by the Department of Transportation (DOT). New York's helmet law applies to all riders, no matter their age or level of experience with riding. Riders who violate New York's helmet law can face a fine of up to $100 and/or 30 days in jail.

It’s also important to know that New York has a law requiring all motorcycle riders to wear eye protection, such as goggles or a face shield.

Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries 

In New York, riders are required to wear helmets when they are a passenger or operator of a motorcycle, however, even with protective headgear, there is still a risk of head injury in a motorcycle crash. Head injuries can be fatal, but even when a person survives a head trauma, the symptoms of head injury are life-altering.

Traumatic brain injury can alter a person’s perception, cognitive abilities, and their personality. Brain injuries are very difficult to diagnose and can sometimes be present even when test results are normal. The costs associating with caring for an individual with a brain injury are extraordinarily high.

If you have been injured while riding your motorcycle because someone else cut you off or entered your right of way, you are entitled to file a claim to compensate you for your pain and suffering.

Wrongful Death Accidents Due To Motorcycle Collisions

Some motorcycle crashes in New York result in the death of the motorcycle operator or passenger. In an accident, a motorcycle rider is far more likely to suffer fatal injuries than the occupants of a passenger vehicle. If your loved one has died in an auto accident or a motorcycle accident due to another person’s negligence, you are entitled to bring a claim for wrongful death.

The loss of a loved one in an accident is tragic, and nothing will replace the family member you have lost, but a settlement from the insurance company of the responsible driver can help the family of the deceased. If your family is struggling with this situation, you need experienced motorcycle accident attorneys who can help you with this sensitive matter.
