California Bicycling Laws
California state law requires people under age 18 to wear a bicycle helmet all the times: it’s the law! For people over 18 years of age, a bicycle helmet is recommended but not required. Whether or not you were wearing a helmet at the time of the bicycle accident will affect your personal injury claim and the amount you will be compensated.
