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
  • Lacerations
  • Concussions and long-term brain conditions like CTE
  • Death

Head injuries can have lifelong impact on the health and well-being of the victim. If you or a family member have been injured due to a defective helmet, you may be eligible to seek compensation through a product liability lawsuit.

Ligori & Ligori is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Ligori.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
