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.

What Our Happy Clients say

4.7 / 5.0

Based on 21 reviews

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Ligori was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Ligori to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

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 got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
