A woman in Texas claims the Harley-Davidson helmet her
husband wore was defective and failed to protect him in a collision.
The woman’s husband died when he struck a vehicle while
trying to avoid another collision on a Texas highway in January 2009.
The widow’s lawsuit claims that he would have survived the
collision if his helmet had been properly designed. She is seeking damages for
loss of companionship, mental anguish, and loss of inheritance.
Roy V. Harley-Davidson, case no. 2010-070606, has been filed
in Harris County District Court.
