If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, you need the expert guidance of an experienced personal injury lawyer.
If safety equipment like a helmet fails in a motorcycle accident, you can sustain much more serious injuries than you otherwise would.
It can also complicate your effort to recover damages from an at-fault driver, because the other side can argue that the equipment manufacturer bears at least some of the liability for your injuries.
In some cases, the situation is egregious enough that you may need to pursue a product liability claim against the manufacturer of the faulty equipment.
In general, product liability actions aren’t considered ideal for clients, as they tend to take long periods to work through and can end up folded into class actions, which can deprive individual plaintiffs of control over their own case.
That said, it’s still important to evaluate all aspects of your accident and determine where fault lies and how to make you as whole as possible again.
