Defective GMAX Helmet Lawsuits

GMAX Helmets, LLC. is a producer of helmets for riders of off-road and street vehicles, including motorcycles, ATVs and snowmobiles. Like any developer, designer and manufacturer of safety gear, GMAX has a responsibility to create products that offer the protection advertised and meet the safety standards for the industry. There have been defective GMAX helmets recalled due to safety concerns that could cause serious injury to riders using these products.

A helmet is the only significant protection for the head of riders if they are in an accident. The design should minimize impact to reduce the chance of injury. If any aspect of the helmet does not function as promised, the rider could face a variety of head injuries. Skull fractures, eye trauma, eye/nose fractures, brain injury and death can occur when a helmet fails to provide the protection expected. If there is evidence that the helmet has a design or manufacturer defect, the developer or manufacturer may be liable for injuries caused by the defective helmet if an accident occurs.

Safety Concerns for GMAX Helmets

One of the GMAX helmets with safety concerns has been recalled. The GMAX GM-78 was recalled in 2016 for not meeting Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 218, “Motorcycle Helmets.” There were 2,915 of these helmets recalled for not adequately protecting the rider from injury in the event of a crash.

Unfortunately, not all helmets are recalled before they cause a serious injury. It is likely that injuries occur and are reported, which is the reason for the helmet recall. There may be other GMAX helmets that are defective beyond the GMAX GM-78.

If you or a close family member has sustained a head injury while wearing a GMAX helmet, check to see if the helmet is under a recall. Even if it is not, it is possible the helmet is defective. Contact our team at Conley Griggs Partin LLP to discuss your claim. If a defective GMAX helmet caused you or a family member to be seriously injured, you may be eligible to pursue a product liability lawsuit.
