Riddell Revolution Helmet Class Action Investigation
Investigating a class action against Riddell on behalf of former and current football players. Beginning in 2008, Riddell falsely advertised its Revolution football helmets as reducing the concussion risk of players wearing the helmet by 31%. In 2013, the Federal Trade Commission sent a letter to Riddell reprimanding the company for falsely advertising the safety of their helmets and finding Riddell based its 31% safer claim on a flawed scientific study. In fact, Riddell’s Revolution helmets suffer from design defects in the interior padding of the helmet meant to absorb shock sustained from blows to the head while playing football, despite the company marketing the helmet as having "concussion reduction technology." Riddell continued to market its Revolution helmet as safer compared to its competitors and in doing so, took advantage of parents’ and players’ concerns over the danger of concussions.
