Why Do You Need An Attorney For These Cases?

Unfortunately, most victims of defective bicycle accident cases do not have the resources necessary to go up against major companies or manufacturers. A skilled SF bicycle accident attorney will have the legal experience and resources necessary to:

  • Obtain all evidence related to the crash, including video and photo surveillance, accident reports, eyewitness accounts, and more.
  • Research the history of the bicycle or bicycle part involved in order to determine whether any party knew about the defect.
  • Negotiate with all parties involved to secure a fair settlement on behalf of their client.

How Do These Incidents Occur?

According to data from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), faulty products cause thousands of injuries and deaths each year in the country. In many cases, these faulty products are bicycles or bicycle parts.

Bicycles or individual parts can become defective in a variety of ways, including:

  • Defective designs that are not discovered when a bicycle or part is being tested.
  • Flaws that occur during manufacturing that altar a bicycle or bike park from their original design.
  • Faulty instructions that mislead consumers on the proper use and maintenance of the bicycle or bicycle part.

Who Could Be Held Liable In These Cases?

There are multiple parties that could be liable in the event a defective bicycle or bicycle part causes injuries. The company that manufacturers the bicycle could be liable, as could the dozens of suppliers that provide the parts that go into making the bicycle. In some cases, a third-party company that alters and sells the bicycle may also be responsible for any injuries or damages that occur.

What Kind Of Compensation Is Available For A Defective Bike Case?

There are various types of compensation available for victims of accidents caused by defective bicycles or bicycle parts. While the total amount of compensation that a victim is awarded will vary depending on the specifics of each particular case, the team at Choulos, Choulos & Wyle regularly helps clients obtain the following:

  • Cost of your current and future medical bills
  • Recovery of lost wages if a victim cannot work
  • Mental anguish damages
  • Loss of enjoyment of life damages
