Q
Can a Motorcyclist Without a Helmet Seek an Award from the Other Driver?

A

In North Carolina, you are not entitled to any compensation if you were not wearing a helmet while involved in a motorcyclist collision. N.C. law requires you to be wearing a helmet when opporating a motorcycle on the road. So, if you are involved in a collision, and you are not wearing a helmet, you are not entitled to receive benefits because you were breaking the law.
