Recently Sakar International Helmets’ Dimensions Bluetooth Speaker multi-purpose helmets were recalled because they did not comply with federal safety standards. For that reason, head injuries may result if the wearer of the helmet falls. After suffering injuries because your helmet was defective, you may be uncertain about what recourse you have. If you suffered head or other injuries due to a recalled bicycle helmet, you should call the experienced Chicago product liability lawyers of Moll Law Group. Billions have been recovered in litigation with which we’ve been involved.
Hire the Moll Law Group If You Were Injured Because of a Defective Helmet
Sakar’s recall concerned the Dimensions Bluetooth Speaker helmets, which are black helmets with black straps and buckles. A white label inside the helmet is printed with Item # ACTGEAR-238BTS in the bottom left corner. These helmets were sold only at Walmart from July 2020 – January 2022 for roughly $25. 89,000 of them were sold. When these helmets don’t comply with federal safety standards, a fall can result in serious injuries. Consumers are supposed to immediately cease use of the recalled helmets and get in touch with Sakar to receive instructions to get a free replacement helmet. Sakar intends to facilitate the return by providing prepaid postage packaging.
If you were already injured as the result of a fall involving a defective helmet made by Sakar, however, you may be concerned about recourse for the losses flowing from those injuries. You may be able to recover damages by filing a product liability lawsuit against the manufacturer and others in the chain of commerce. To recover damages, our lawyers will need to establish that the helmet was defective in terms of its design, marketing, or manufacturing. Defects in design are flaws in what the product is supposed to be. For example, if none of the helmets comply with safety standards, there is likely a design flaw. However, if only certain helmets have problems, it is more likely a manufacturing defect, or flaw in how the helmet was made. Experts may need to testify on the type of defect.
