Local Personal Injury Lawyers for Motorcycle Accidents & Injuries
Motorcycle ownership can be appealing due to the lifestyle and freedom of the open road. However, motorcycles are also incredibly dangerous and involved in many crashes throughout Missouri and Illinois, every year. While wearing a helmet may decrease your chances of injury, it’s not required in the State of Illinois. Furthermore, if you’re a motorcyclist that’s been a victim of negligent or reckless motorists or you’ve been hit by someone on a motorcycle, call the Brunton Law Firm to evaluate your case. We’ll make note of all the details and fight for the compensation that the law entitles you to.

Illinois Helmet Law
In the State of Illinois, there is no law requiring the use of a helmet safety device when operating a motorcycle. Drivers and those that share the roadways should take extra caution as it pertains to motorcycles on the road.
Missouri Helmet Law
By contrast, the State of Missouri makes helmets mandatory for all motorcycle riders in the state. When riding, be sure you understand where you’re riding and the laws that govern that state. Crossing from Missouri to Illinois means you’ll be free to ditch the helmet. However, crossing from Illinois to Missouri means you better strap your helmet on!
