What You Need to Know About Phoenix Bike Helmet Laws

Bicycle Helmets

While not required by law throughout most of Arizona, bike helmets are considered a vital piece of safety equipment for any cyclist. Regardless of your age or your biking experience, bike helmets can mean the difference between life and death during a collision. Over the past few decades, studies have shown that wearing a bike helmet can reduce the odds of serious brain injury by almost 85%. Unfortunately, even the safest cyclist, armed with the best helmet on the market, can end up injured at the hands of a reckless motorist. If you, or a loved one, have recently been involved in a bike accident – with or without a helmet – you may be able to take legal action against the at-fault party.

Are Bike Helmets Mandatory In Phoenix?

Unfortunately, there are no statewide laws regarding bicycle helmets. While it is recommended, Arizona does not require riders of any age to wear a safety helmet. However, certain municipalities do have codes, which require riders under the age of 18 to wear a bike helmet. Flagstaff, Pima County, Sierra Vista, Tucson, and Yuma require bike helmets. Outside of those locales, it is up to the individual rider or their parents to decide. As experienced personal injury attorneys, who have witnessed the damage a severe bike accident can have on an individual, we recommend considering a safety helmet when planning to take a bike ride.

If I Am Injured In a Bicycle Accident, What Kind of Compensation is Available?

If you or a loved one have recently been involved in a bike accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. While every case is different, most personal injury claims – including those involving bicycles – often cover similar damages. Depending on your particular situation, you may be able to collect on one or more of the following:

  • Hospitalization and treatment
  • Emergency transportation
  • Pain and suffering
  • Physical therapy
  • Lost wages
  • Future medical bills
  • Property damage
