Ottawa Lawyer: Build a better bike helmet to avoid head injury

Avoiding child head injuries and child spinal cord injury is a pressing issue for all Ottawa parents, especially when those parents are also personal injury lawyers who see the damage a bike accident can cause.  There is progress toward this shared goal.  Researchers have been working towards a new design for a bicycle helmet which would more effectively prevent injuries to the spinal cord. This new design is made to lessen the compression that occurs in the vertebrae. Would you wear one?
