Yes, you can still file a Texas personal injury claim after a motorcycle accident even if you were not wearing a helmet at the time of the collision. Whether or not you were wearing a helmet has nothing to do with who caused the accident and who is ultimately at fault for your crash. However, it’s important to note that even though you are not required by law to wear a helmet in the State of Texas, you may be found “comparatively negligent” for a portion of your damages (injuries) due to your choice not to wear one.
