Helmet Design Defects Attorney
One of the most important factors in the prevention of head, brain, and neck injuries while riding a motorcycle or bicycle is the use of a safety helmet. Head and brain injuries can be among the most serious and devastating injuries a person can suffer from – which is why helmets are a must at all times when riding. When people purchase and wear helmets, they trust they will be protected from serious injury should an accident or collision occur. Helmets are designed with the intention of absorbing impact forces and protect your skull and brain from receiving the majority of an impact in the event of a crash. While many injuries and deaths from motorcycle and bicycle crashes can be prevented by people wearing a helmet, this isn’t always the case. Manufacturing defects, malfunctioning helmet straps and buckles, and flawed helmet design can leave those wearing the helmet vulnerable and susceptible to serious injuries.

Common Injuries From Defective Helmets
Motorcycle and bicycle helmets are designed to protect you in the event of an accident or fall. They are meant to protect and cushion your head and minimize your injuries. Sometimes your helmet is the only thing between your head and the road. You depend on it to function properly. There are cases when the rider suffered severe and permanent head injuries and brain damage while wearing a helmet in a low speed crash without suffering other serious injuries, which was likely due to a design defect with the helmet. Some of the most common injuries that defective helmets are responsible for causing include the following:
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Wrongful death
Some injuries are caused by the outside shell of the helmet having been manufactured out of materials that were improperly molded, too thin, or made of unsafe materials. The strap intended to hold the helmet in place can break or tear, causing the helmet to fly off. A helmet may be the wrong size to protect your head. If you have experienced any of the above or were injured because a different helmet defect, contact an attorney from Rad Law Firm right away.
