Can a failure to wear a helmet reduce the claim for damages sustained by an injured motorcycle rider in Florida?

Transcript:

Your failure to wear a helmet while operating a motorcycle can reduce your claim for damages. Florida is what is known as a comparative fault state. That means that a jury could say to themselves it reflected in their verdict, that your damages were caused in whole or in part by your failure to wear a helmet. If that’s the case, your damages are either going to be completely eliminated, if it’s a head injury, or reduced to the proportion that the jury feels is attributable to your failure to wear that helmet.

You pay NO FEES or COSTS unless we settle or win your case!
