Missouri requires that individuals of all ages wear helmets while riding or operating a motorcycle. This law differs from Illinois which does not require people using motorcycles to wear helmets. If you are involved in a accident while on a motorcycle in Missouri without a helmet this could detrimentally affect your personal injury claim. If you suffered a head and/or neck injury the defense could argue that this injury would not have been suffered if you were abiding the law. In other words, this fact would be used against you as comparative negligence to diminish or void your claim for compensation.
