Bike Part Recall Lawyers in New Jersey
Recalled Bicycles & Bike Parts
If you have been injured in a bicycle accident that was caused by a defective bicycle or bicycle part, the skilled NJ bike accident attorneys can help you pursue compensation.
Bicycles and bicycle parts, like all other consumer products, are designed and produced by manufacturing companies that are responsible for the quality and safety of their products. If poor design or shoddy manufacturing causes flaws or defects that can create problems for the user, or in this case, rider, then that product may be recalled. Although the predominant causes of bicycle accidents tend to be collisions with negligent motorists and hazardous roadways, defective bicycles and/or bicycle parts do play their part.
Defective Bicycle Liability
A defective chain, seat post, handlebar stem or fork steerer tube can all potentially cause a rider to lose control of the bicycle and/or fall off. This poses a substantial safety risk when riding on roads that are also used by motor vehicles. A bike rider can be easily thrown or lose control of their bike into the path of a motor vehicle.
Bicycle and bicycle part manufacturers have a duty to produce safe vehicles using quality materials and a standardized production process. Should the bike or bike part they produce be flawed or defective in a way that could pose a danger to the bike rider, then the manufacturer is responsible for recalling the defective bikes and resolving the problem. If the defective bike causes an injury accident before such a recall may be initiated, the manufacturer may be held liable for the victim's losses.
