The use of virtual reality helmets can lead to injury. There are a huge number of videos on the Web with how people fall or break something while in virtual reality, but as it turned out, this aspect has a very specific assessment.
According to the source, the British insurance company Aviva last year recorded an increase in the number of claims for insurance payments related to the use of VR helmets. Moreover, the indicator in annual terms increased by 31%, and in comparison with 2016, the number of such cases increased by 68%.
As new games and gadgets become popular, we often see this show up in claims filed by our customers. We’ve seen similar trends in the past with motion controller consoles, fitness games, and even spinners.
These devices can be a great source of enjoyment, but we encourage people to be mindful of their surroundings and pay attention to their home’s insurance to make sure it fits their needs.
Usually, VR users contact the insurance company in connection with damage to furniture and broken TVs. The average payout in 2021 for such cases was around £650.

Apple AirPods Pro ruptured a 12-year-old boy’s eardrums, leaving him disabled. The company was sued
Apple is facing legal action over AirPods.
According to sources, the company was sued due to the fact that a 12-year-old child was injured due to the use of Apple headphones. One would think that the headphones exploded, as this sometimes happens, but in this case the reason is completely different.
The child was watching a movie on Netflix using an iPhone and AirPods Pro. At some point, the Amber Alert system (child abduction alert system) went off. Initially, the headphones worked at a low volume, but the sound of Amber Alert was so loud that it ruptured the child’s eardrums and damaged the cochlea. After the incident, the boy suffered from hearing loss, nausea, dizziness and tinnitus. He is now required to wear a hearing aid.
In fact, this happened back in 2020, but, as is often the case, the general public will learn about such incidents much later.
The lawsuit alleges that Apple is aware of “defective” AirPods that do not mute Amber Alerts. What’s more, Apple also didn’t include a warning about a potential issue that users might encounter.
The lawsuit against Apple seeks damages for the boy and his parents, who are under enormous emotional stress due to the situation. The lawsuit seeks “punitive damages in an amount that will punish defendants for their conduct and deter other technology companies from engaging in such misconduct in the future.”
