Defective Helmets Can Lead to Injuries
As mentioned above, the recalled helmets fail to meet federal safety standards for bicycle helmets. Therefore, they do not provide the necessary protection during bicycle accidents; this leaves bicyclists at risk of suffering head injuries (including traumatic brain injuries). Bicyclists could suffer concussions, hematoma, hemorrhage, and skull fractures, for instance. Head and traumatic brain injuries are likely to cause permanent damage. It is possible for bicyclists to suffer paralysis, lose the ability to speak, suffer vision loss, and lose cognitive abilities, for instance. Without a doubt, the extent of the damage will vary case to case. If you or a member of your family suffered harm associated with the defective Any Volume helmets, you should consider your right to sue.
Understanding Product Liability
Based on the details surrounding the harm that you or a member of your family experienced associated with the defective helmets recalled by Any Volume, you might have the right to sue. Your right to sue is based on the concept of product liability. Based on product liability, all companies owe their consumers a duty of care – a duty to ensure that their products are completely safe for their consumers to use. Companies have a duty to test and inspect their products thoroughly to be able to identify and address any of the hazards present. Companies must do this before making their products available for their consumers. Unfortunately, companies can act negligently and make defective products available for consumers. They can actually contribute to the harm that their consumers suffer.
If an innocent consumer suffers harm due to a defective helmet or any other defective product, the company that negligently made the product available to consumers could be held accountable. That is, Any Volume or other companies could be sued. If you are interested in learning more about your right to sue for the harm that you or a member of your family suffered due to a defective product? If so, do not hesitate to contact the defective product attorneys at our firm at your earliest convenience.

Although some claimants could be eligible to recover all the categories of compensation listed above, other claimants might only be eligible to receive a few of the types of compensation listed.

Recommended Steps that Affected Consumers Should Take
After being harmed by a defective product, there are a number of things that victims and their families should do to prepare to pursue a claim against negligent companies. If you or a member of your family suffered harm due to a defective helmet or any other defective product, you should consider the following recommendations:
File Your Claim Quickly
As explained above, you might have grounds to sue based on the concept of product liability. However, you must file your claim immediately to ensure that you preserve your right sue. This is because claims are subject to a statute of limitations that establishes the time that claimants have to sue. If claimants do not file their claims within the appropriate length of time, claimants will likely lose their right to sue.
What deadline applies to your defective product claim? How long do you have to sue Any Volume for the harm that you or a member of your family suffered? In California, product liability claims are normally subject to a two-year statute of limitations; this means that claimants will only have two years to file their claims. However, it is possible for certain exceptions to apply – exceptions to the statute of limitations could potentially pause the deadline that applies to your claim.
To ensure that you have a thorough understanding of the total length of time that you have to file your claim against Any Volume or any other negligent company, do not hesitate to seek legal assistance with the experts at our firm at your earliest convenience.
