Helmet Defects Lawsuit Claims Lawyer
There is no doubt that helmets save lives. For those who ride motorcycles, bicycles, ATVs or play contact sports, helmets can provide protection for the head if an accident occurs. Unfortunately, if a helmet is not properly designed or a defect occurs in manufacturing, it may not provide the protection that is promised. If you or a loved one sustained a serious injury due to a defective helmet, the manufacturer or retailer may be liable for damages.
Helmets have the ability to protect the head during impact. With the correct design and effective components, helmets can cushion a blow and reduce the chance of a traumatic brain injury. However, many people have trusted a helmet to give them protection, only to see it fail when it mattered the most. A chin strap that breaks or a defective design can result in serious injuries during impact. These injuries would have been prevented if the helmet worked as promised by the manufacturer.
Injuries from Defective Helmets
When a helmet fails, it can have devastating results for the victim. Football players, motorcycle riders and children on their bikes have been seriously injured or killed due to defective helmets. Some of the injuries that may occur when a helmet fails to protect the head during impact or an accident include:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Facial and skull fractures
- Concussions and long-term brain conditions like CTE
Head injuries can have lifelong impact on the health and well-being of the victim.
