This is an important question and the answer is, when buying a new helmet, look for the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) certification. There should be a sticker inside the helmet showing that it meets national and state safety standards. These stickers are on all approved, adult and children’s, helmets.
As an accident lawyer, I recommend that you make sure your and your children’s helmets have the CPSC sticker on them.
