Omaha Bike Part Recall Injury Lawyers

Advocating for Omaha Bicyclists Injured by Defective Bike Parts

Like other consumer products, defective bike parts can be recalled. Parts can be defective if they are not reasonably safe for their intended use. A rider who has been injured by a faulty bike part may have a product liability claim for compensation against the responsible parties.

What Bike Parts Can Be Dangerous?

Bicycle parts that fail to function for their intended purpose can be dangerous. Defective bike parts that can cause injury include:

  • Face plates
  • Handlebars
  • Brakes
  • Wheel mechanisms
  • Bicycle forks
  • Suspensions
  • Pedals

How Can Bike Parts Be Defective?

Like other consumer products, bicycle parts can be defective in three basic ways under product liability laws:

  • Design defects: This type of defect occurs when a product is manufactured as intended but has a design flaw that makes it inherently unsafe.
  • Manufacturing defects: This can occur when the design of a product is adequate, but it is not manufactured correctly.
  • Labeling defects: Manufacturers have a duty to provide adequate warning labels and instructions to guard against hazards associated with use of a product. When they fail to do so, the product has a labeling or warning defect.

What Types of Injuries Can Result from Recalled Bike Parts?

Defective bike parts can cause riders to crash and suffer a wide range of injuries. Common bicycle crash injuries include:

  • Road rash (severe skin abrasions from sliding across a rough surface when a rider is thrown from the bike)
  • Bone fractures (caused by trauma to the bone in the impact of a crash)
  • Dislocations (when bones of the shoulder, elbow, fingers, knees, or ankles are forced out of the joint)
  • Head trauma and traumatic brain injury (when a helmet falls off during a crash)
  • Neck and back injuries (from falling off the bike)
  • Genitourinary injuries (from broken seats or landing on the crossbar)

What Forms of Compensation Are Available to Injured Riders?

Bicyclists injured by defective parts may be entitled to seek compensation for their injuries. Damages are designed to compensate victims for their injuries and the losses they have suffered. Depending on the particular circumstances, they may include past and future medical expenses, lost wages or earnings, loss of future earning potential, scarring and disfigurement, permanent impairment, and pain and suffering.
