Defective Bell Helmets Lawsuit Injury Lawyer
Even companies that have been in the helmet industry for decades can create inferior products that can cause injuries. Bell was established in 1954, creating helmets for auto racing, motorcycling and bicycling. Over the years, safety standards have been improved and increased for helmets, which helmet developers and manufacturers are required to meet. When design or manufacturer defects occur with any helmet, including those created by Bell, it can put those wearing these helmets at risk for serious head injuries.
While Bell has been in business for 60 years, they have had problems with some of their helmets. For example, in 2011 Bell recalled 31,100 full-face bicycle helmets in the U.S. due to a safety concern. The chin strap buckle was found to be defective. The buckle had the risk of failure during an accident, causing the helmet to come off and pose a risk of head injury for the rider. Anyone who sustained a head injury due to a defective Bell helmet, whether it is recalled or not, may be eligible to seek compensation for their injuries.
Injuries Caused by Defective Giro Bicycle Helmets
Another helmet company with a long history is Giro. For over 30 years, Giro has been designing and selling bicycle helmets for riding off-road and on the street. Like any manufacturer, Giro is responsible for creating safe products for their customers. If you or a loved one sustained a serious head injury when a Giro helmet failed or was defective, you may have grounds for a product liability lawsuit.
