San Diego CA Motorcycle Accident Law

DOT Approved Helmets

In California and San Diego CA car accident cases, the defense can use evidence that the injured party (plaintiff) was not wearing a seatbelt to establish that the plaintiff would have been less injured or not injured at all if they had been wearing their seatbelt.  This defense can deal crushing blows to an otherwise solid case, and raise the cost dramatically due to having to hire a biomechanics expert to testify on your behalf.

The same holds true for California and San Diego CA motorcycle accident cases in which the rider is not wearing a DOT approved helmet.  The defense can prove that you would have been less injured, or not been injured at all had you been wearing the proper headgear.   Even though the proper DOT helmet may be a bit less free than you’d like, it may save your case as well as your life.
