interesting. One medical response might be: if we could guard against lightning strikes we would.

However, seems to me given the nature of the helmet - protecting against slow crashes of the kind where you hit or are hit by a rapidly braking vehicle, or where you fall onto the pavement or into something, it would actually be rarer for a helmet to protect people from dying than it would lessen their severity of a head injury. So if 1000 people hit their heads on pavement falling off their bike going at a very slow speed, I would think a tiny number would die, but a large number would get concussions. That's where I expect the helmet would be effective.
