California Mountain Bike Recall Lawyers

Mountain bicyclists rely on the quality and reliability of their mountain bikes to perform on the trails. However, some people have been seriously injured in mountain bike accidents due to mountain bike defects. For example in June 2007, Cannondale Mountain Bikes were recalled in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission due to lefty forks that could break unexpectedly. These forks could break or separate unexpectedly causing the rider to lose control, crash, and suffer serious injuries. The affected mountain bikes include the Lefty Speed Carbon SL and Lefty Speed DLR 2 series.

In 2009, Specialized Bicycles Company issued a mountain bike recall due to serious fall risks associated with 14,000 of their bicycles. The affected mountain bikes were all Specialized 2009 model bicycles: Cross Trail Comp, Myka HT Comp, MYKA HT Elite, and Rockhoppers. These bikes' handlebars can break posing a serious risk to cyclists. The company has received at least two reports of serious mountain bike accidents during which the handlebars broke during use, causing one rider to suffer serious head injury, loss of consciousness, and puncture wounds.

These are just two mountain bike products that have been recalled due to the serious risk of mountain bike accidents.

Contacting a qualified and knowledgeable attorney following a mountain bike accident can help you determine the cause of the accident. In some cases, your attorneys may uncover a mountain bike defect or other liability that would warrant a legal case. In such situations, you may be able to seek compensation for your injuries, expenses, losses and suffering.
