Is the Bike Maker Responsible for my Injuries if a Defective Part Caused my Bicycle Accident?

Is The Repair Shop Responsible For My Injuries If A Faulty Repair Caused My Bicycle Accident?Yes. If the manufacturer’s negligent design or production caused a bicycle malfunction that resulted in injury to you, you might be able to bring a product liability lawsuit.

Can I Recover Damages if my Bike Accident was Caused by Faulty Goods or Services?

Contrary to what a lot of people might believe, most bicycle accidents are not the result of collisions with other vehicles, but happen when the cyclist is riding alone. Many of these “solo” accidents are the result of poor maintenance and even defective bike components that make riding the bike dangerous.

You might be able to recover damages from the bicycle’s manufacturer if a flaw in the design of the bike itself caused your accident and subsequent injuries, via a product liability lawsuit. Likewise, you can also sue a bike repair shop if you can prove the shop was negligent in repairing your bicycle and the faulty repair contributed to your accident.

What is a Product Liability Lawsuit?

In product liability lawsuits, you must prove that the design or manufacture of a product was defective and this was the reason you got hurt. Therefore, you could potentially sue the maker, designer, and seller of the bike or bike part that caused your damages. This also holds true if you were a pedestrian injured by someone riding a defective bike.

In addition, Jonathan was understanding and patient pertaining to any of my questions or concerns. I was very happy with the end result and I highly recommend Jonathan Rosenfeld. Michonne Proulx
★★★★★
Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own. Ethan Armstrong
★★★★★
This lawyer really helped me get compensation for my motorcycle accident case. I know there is no way that I could have gotten anywhere near the amount that Mr. Rosenfeld was able to get to settle my case. Thank you. Daniel Kaim
