Protect Your Rights As A Motorcycle Rider

Operating a motorcycle is risky because they are more difficult to see than other (larger) vehicles, and don’t provide nearly as much protection as a car or truck. Thus, injuries are common and often serious in motorcycle accidents.

If you or a loved one was involved in a motorcycle crash, feel free to call us for a free consultation. We have represented many cyclists, and can answer any of your questions.

Ohio’s Motorcycle Helmet Laws

Helmets can protect riders from devastating personal injuries. Ohio does not require all motorcycle riders to wear helmets, except as follows:

  • Motorcycle riders under age 18 must wear a helmet.
  • Motorcycle riders with a Temporary Instruction Permit Identification Card (TIPIC) must wear a helmet.
  • Any passengers must wear a helmet.
  • The helmet must comply with DOT regulations.

If you were riding without a helmet, the insurance companies will try to downplay the liability of the other driver. But you still have the right to seek compensation. Speak to one of our attorneys, and we can help you understand your rights.
