We Seek Full Compensation for Injuries Resulting from Faulty Bicycle Parts

Bicyclists are a commonplace sight in the United States. While more designated paths and bicycle-only lanes will likely reduce the risk of bicycle-motor vehicle accidents, there are other risks that may cause injury to riders. Defective bike design and manufacture is one of the most common causes of preventable injuries to bicyclists and could give rise to a lawsuit against the responsible party or parties. Anyone who believes that they have been injured in an accident caused by negligent bicycle design or manufacture should be certain to consult with an experienced lawyer as soon as possible for a case evaluation.

What Injuries Could a Faulty Bike Part Cause?

Bicycle accidents have the potential to cause serious injury to riders and pedestrians. When they occur due to someone else’s negligence, it is important that victims hold those at fault responsible. There are many potential ways that defective design or manufacture can create dangerous conditions. 

Some of the most common include the following:

  • Broken chains
  • Blown tires
  • Faulty brakes
  • Hand brakes that fall off
  • Suspensions that separate from the frame
  • Cracked pedals
  • Wheels coming off
  • Improperly welded frames
  • Poor steering mechanisms
  • Defective tire tubes 

In addition to defective manufacture and design, failure to warn a rider about inherently dangerous conditions could give rise to a lawsuit. Manufacturers could be held liable if an accident occurs that could have been easily prevented by including proper instructions regarding the bicycle.
