Baton Rouge and Ascension Parish Head Injury Law Firm
A motorcycle or motorbike rider is not protected by the shell of the vehicle — they are at the mercy of the road. Because of this, injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident are often severe, including:
- Severe head injuries, including brain damage
- Neck and back injuries, including spinal cord injuries
- Broken bones
- Severed or crushed limbs
- Road rash or burns
Unfortunately, injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident may be so severe that they lead to death.
Louisiana Mandatory Motorcycle Helmet Law
To counteract the risk of severe head trauma, Louisiana has a mandatory helmet law: anyone under the age of 18 riding on a motorcycle, whether a driver or a rider, must be wearing a helmet, no matter the speed or distance. Anyone over the age of 18 choosing not to wear a helmet while riding on a motorcycle must carry at least $10,000 of health insurance.
However, it is important to know that it does not mean you are not entitled to compensation for your or your loved one's injuries if you or your loved one was involved in a motorcycle accident while not wearing a helmet. It is crucial that you speak to a team of attorneys with a record of success. We are well-versed in this and other relevant Louisiana laws, and we are ready to discuss your situation.
