Some motorcycle riders wear helmets, others do not. South Carolina law does not require helmets for people over 21. While a helmet may prevent certain injuries, your choice not to wear a helmet does not prevent you from filing a claim if the wreck was caused by another person's negligence.
Motorcycle accidents can lead to catastrophic injuries regardless of whether someone was wearing a helmet. And while we certainly encourage every rider to put on a helmet before heading out on the roadways, your choice not to should never effect your legal right to fair compensation.
