Colorado Man Files $10 Million Lawsuit Against Specialized for Defective Bike Helmet

In August 2019, a 50 year-old man from Denver, Colorado who claims he was injured due to a defective bicycle helmet filed a $10 million lawsuit against Specialized Bicycle Components. In 2017, he was in an accident while wearing a size XXL Specialized Max Helmet that failed to protect his head. He suffered a skull fracture, scalp laceration, and permanent brain injuries.

MIPS Bike Helmet Technology

MIPS (Multi-Directional Impact Protection System) is a bicycle helmet technology that improves protection for a rider’s head. While most helmets are good at protecting a person in frontal impacts, injuries frequently occur in side-impact collisions due to rotational strain.

Helmets with MIPS technology are constructed from two layers that rotate or slip against each other, which reduces the harmful rotational forces in side-angle impacts. It debuted in 2010 in bicycle helmets.
