Defective Helmets

Children of all ages and even adults are typically aware of how important it is to wear a helmet when they participate in physically violent or dangerous sports and other activities. Unfortunately, these helmets can be of little help if they are poorly designed and manufactured. Traumatic brain injuries affect over 1.7 million people across the United States annually, injuring hundreds of thousands and killing close to 52,000. Tragically, when helmets are defective, the health of their wearers may be needlessly endangered.

You should not have to bear the expense of large medical bills or lost wages if you have suffered a traumatic brain injury due to a helmet defect. At Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. we are dedicated to helping you fight for the financial compensation you need.

Common Helmet Defects

Whether an individual is engaged in a sport like football or skateboarding, or a leisure activity like riding a bicycle or motorcycle, a helmet can save your life in case of an accident. However, if the helmet is defective, the wearer may suffer severe injury unexpectedly. The following are representative types of helmet defects:

  • Straps, clips, and other securing devices which do not work
  • Visor or facemask prone to shattering
  • Lack of sufficient padding to insulate the helmet wearer’s head
  • Too thin an outer shell, creating a heightened risk of cracking
