Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
Traveling through Wyoming on route to the Sturgis Motorcyle Rally? Wyoming with its majestic Rocky Mountains and wide-open plains provide stunning scenery for bikers. Yellowstone National Park, Grand Teton National Park, and Devils Tower National Monument are just a few of the breathtaking sites available to bikers in Wyoming. Each year, hundreds of thousands of motorcyclists are drawn to the Black Hills for the well-known Sturgis Motorcycle Rally and to Wyoming. In order to enjoy all that Wyoming has to offer when you are at Sturgis, motorcyclists must follow Wyoming motorcycle safety laws.
Following are some of Wyoming’s motorcycle laws, obtained from the Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) and the American Motorcycle Association (AMA):
Helmets are not required in Wyoming for motorcycle passengers or operators 18 or older.
Wyoming has adopted a modified comparative fault rule. Under this rule, individuals may not recover damages from an accident if they were 51% or more at fault for the accident. If a driver is 50% or less at fault for an accident, the recovery will be reduced based upon the driver’s percentage of fault. Because of this, if you have been injured in a Wyoming motorcycle accident, it is often necessary to hire an experienced Wyoming motorcycle lawyer in order to receive fair compensation for your injuries and other damages.
