Motorcycle Helmet

Arizona Motorcycle Helmet Law

Arizona law requires that riders under the age of eighteen wear a protective helmet. Riders eighteen and over are not required to wear a helmet.

Although helmet use is optional, if a motorcycle rider is injured in an accident and makes a claim, under certain circumstances a jury can consider the non-use of a helmet in calculating damages.

For instance, if a motorcycle rider sustains a head injury in an accident, and there is expert testimony that the injury would not have occurred had the person worn a helmet, the jury can elect to reduce or eliminate entirely the damages that otherwise would have been awarded to the injured person.
