There are still quite a few number of recorded injuries by bike accidents in every-country everyday.

Helmet is designed to limit impacts and absorb the force of the impact up to their resistance limit.
If the power of the impact exceeds this limit, the helmet will crumple.
The way it absorbs the shockwaves is a bit like the role of a car airbag: its main aim is to protect your head from direct impacts.
