How Can I Recover If My Bike Accident Was Caused By Faulty Goods Or Services?
You may be able to sue the repair shop if you can prove that they were negligent in repairing your bicycle and that the negligent repair contributed to the cause of your accident. Further, you may be entitled to recover from the bicycle manufacturer if the bicycle design itself caused your accident and injuries via a product liability lawsuit .
What Exactly Is A Products Liability Lawsuit?
Products liability is a different breed of lawsuit than its more familiar cousins: negligence and medical malpractice. Negligence is a cause of action that asserts that the defendant’s unreasonable conduct caused the plaintiff’s damages. In medical malpractice cases, plaintiffs claim that their medical provider did not give them the requisite level of care and that it caused their injuries. With products liability lawsuits, your claim is that the design or manufacture of a product was sub-par and it was the reason that you got hurt. Therefore, you could potentially sue the maker, designer, or seller of the bike or bike part that caused your damages.
