Do You Have to Wear a Motorcycle Helmet in Alabama?
If you are riding a motorcycle in Alabama, no matter if you're the operator or passenger, you must wear a motorcycle helmet. Alabama is one of the 19 states that have what is known as a universal helmet law that requires riders to wear protective DOT approved helmets. Wearing a helmet has been proven to significantly reduce both head and neck injuries, but also the possibility of death.
If your own health and safety wasn't enough to wear a helmet, choosing to not comply with the law and not wear a helmet in Alabama could result in you getting a misdemeanor charge. You could also be fined up to $100 and be sentenced to jail time or community service for 180 days.
Our attorneys handle the legal process, so you can focus on healing. Although you
have two years to file a claim for your
injuries, we recommend that you
contact a lawyer
much sooner. We can immediately launch an investigation into your case and help you
gather all the evidence needed to build a solid claim and recover the
