Common Helmet Malfunctions

Before participating in an activity that could endanger your head, make sure to thoroughly inspect your helmet for any irregularities or damaged components. Some of the most common helmet malfunctions include:

  • Buckles or straps that are broken or do not stay latched
  • Helmets that slide off during the activity or in case of a fall
  • Cracked visors
  • Inadequate padding
  • Thin or brittle outer shell

Head injuries can leave you disabled and could possibly prevent you from working or living a normal life. Thus, it is important to hold the negligent helmet manufacturers or designers responsible for their failure to provide you with a safe product.
