The luck of the responsible one should not be a factor- his actions should. However, you should not "kick rider #1's butt" because that would be too simple an answer and he most likely would not learn much from the experience while exposing you to criminal problems. Instead, ostracize him- refuse to ride with the guy (especially if the accident resulted from a reoccurring pattern of incompetence) and spread the word that the guy is dangerous- citing the accident.

As for the helmet, check out the manufacturer's exchange program. Many want damaged helmets back to study and offer a replacement program for much less $$ than retail prices.
