SAN DIEGO CALIFORNIA MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT LAW FIRM: What if I was injured in a San Diego Motorcycle Accident, but I was not wearing my helmet? Can I still recover for my injuries from my motorcycle injury accident?

Even though California has a mandatory motorcycle helmet law, your failure to comply with that law will probably not prevent you from recovering for your bodily injuries if someone else caused the California motorcycle accident.  However, the issue may be relevant to the amount of damages you will recover, if it is shown that your failure to wear a helmet contributed to your bodily injuries.
