Bike Part Recall Attorneys in Phoenix
One minor break, slip, or snap of any part of a bike can stop a rider dead in their tracks. The results can be disastrous. And 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. When a manufacturer distributes goods that are unsafe, the company 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 you or a loved one suffered injuries due to a recalled bicycle part, call The Husband & Wife Law Team at (602) 457-6222 for a FREE consultation. You may be able to seek compensation for:

When it comes to faulty equipment and product liability in bicycles, there are several parties that could be held liable:
- The bicycle company. Even if they issued a recall, they can still be held accountable.
- The manufacturer of the defective part may be separate from the bicycle company. Any negligence on their part could have been a contributing factor, making them liable.
- The bicycle distributor, which can include suppliers of aftermarket bike parts.
Bicycles riders may be injured due to defective design or a manufacturing defect. Parts that are inherently defective fail to account for the foreseeable use of the product. Perhaps the brakes won’t completely stop the bike when traveling at operating speed, or a pedal suddenly comes off, leading to a hazardous fall. Chains that break or fly off under normal use or can also cause a dangerous spill.
Defective bicycle parts that may cause injury include:
- Inner tubes
Insurance companies don’t play fair. If you were injured in an accident caused by a defective bicycle part, they’ll probably offer you a lowball settlement that won’t even cover the full cost of your injuries.
Building a strong claim involving a recalled bike part can take time. The sooner your attorney begins reviewing the facts of your case and researching potential causes, the better your odds of winning a successful claim. It’s important to remember that Arizona maintains a statute of limitations on all personal injury cases. Failure to meet the deadline can mean a forfeiture of any potential compensation.

- Fractured bones
- Road rash

- Broken teeth
- Bleeding and contusions
