Defective Bicycle Part Injuries: Do I Have A Product Defect Suit?
Anyone who has ever had to deal with a broken bicycle knows just how limiting it can be. One minor break, slip, or snap of any part of a bike can stop a rider dead in his or her tracks. But what happens if a part breaks while a cyclist is speeding down a hill, negotiating an intersection, or attempting any number of other dangerous maneuvers while on their bike? The results can be disastrous. To make matters worse, some of these problems are not the result of normal wear and tear – they are the result of a defective product.
In the legal world, this is known as product liability. Whenever it is discovered that a manufacturer has distributed goods that are unsafe for human use or consumption, they will often issue a recall. Unfortunately because the products are already in use, many people still get hurt. Every year thousands of people across the country are injured by products that have been recalled. If your or a loved one have recently suffered injuries due to a recalled bicycle part, you may have grounds to take legal action and should contact a Phoenix bike part recall lawyer.

Who is Responsible For My Phoenix Bike Accident?
When it comes to faulty equipment and product liability in bicycles, there are several parties that could be held liable. For starters, there is the bike company itself. Regardless of the fact they eventually issued a recall, they can still be held accountable. There is also the manufacturer of the bike part – which could be separate from the bicycle company. Any negligence on their part could have been a contributing factor and, therefore, makes them liable. Finally, there is the distributor, which can include suppliers of after-market bike parts.
