This Motorcycle Helmet May Not Adequately Protect Your Head During A Crash

There are plenty of motorcyclists in Florida. The Sunshine State has great weather, sights to see, and even events to ride in on the machines. For example, the 2nd Annual Exploding Easter Egg Hunt & Pot Luck Competition is scheduled to take place on April 14, 2019, from 12:30 pm to 5:00 pm in New Port Richey. The benefit is being hosted by the Suncoast Brotherhood Bikers Rights Group Pasco County.

Of course, this is not the only meet as there are other charitable events, poker runs, bike nights, and more too. In other words, the state has a lot to offer riders, which is why there are more and more of them on our roads each day. In fact, a study by Statista revealed that Florida came in at number two on the estimated list of registered motorcycles by the state in 2017 with 586,267. However, that number doesn't account for the number of riders that came to Florida just passing through.

Simply put, a bunch of bikes can be on the streets and highways at any given time. Thus, motorists and motorcyclists must pay attention to what they are doing to avoid collisions. After all, nobody wants to be involved in an accident, but still, they happen from time to time. Even with the protective equipment that bikers can purchase, these accidents are usually extremely unforgiving to them and their passengers. Persons often lose their lives or sustain severe injuries such as...

• Fractured Or Broken Arms And Legs
• Head And Facial Wounds
• Road Rash
• Burns Caused By Fire Or Explosion
• Paralysis
• Traumatic Brain Injuries

What About When Something Else Causes The Injury?

As mentioned above, many riders buy helmets, vests, padded suits, and more to protect them while operating their motorcycles. Sometimes, the equipment doesn't do what it is supposed to do though. So, all motorcyclists should know about this recall expected to begin in April 2019. Ivolution Sports, Inc is recalling approximately 3,000 IV2 HY808 helmets. These headpieces came in the sizes of small, medium, large, and extra-large. They feature the part number Hy808.

The helmets fail to meet the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 218. In the event of a motorcycle crash, the lid may not adequately protect the wearer from a head impact. While the company is doing its duty by recalling the pieces, severe injuries might still occur. Products are supposed to be safe and ready for consumers to use by the time they make it to the open market, but unfortunately, things slip through the cracks all the time.

Dealing with the lawyers that manufacturers have on retainer can be quite the tall order. They are sly, slick, and try to do whatever it takes to prevent their client from paying out a large sum. So, if you receive injuries in a crash, and the equipment you were wearing is to blame, put a proven firm on your side to fight for what is right and just.
