You don’t see too many motorcyclists without helmets. But there are some. And our client was one of them.
Defendants argued that they shouldn’t have to compensate our client for his brain injury because he wasn’t wearing a helmet.
We argued that our client’s failure to wear a helmet did not cause the accident and pointed out that defendants didn’t have any evidence that our client would have fared better even if he was wearing a helmet.
Defendants didn’t admit we were right. But they did something that spoke even louder than words: they paid almost a million dollars to settle the case.
