Bike Recalled Due to Fall Hazards|PA NJ Dangerous Recalled Product Liability Lawyer

Posted on Jul 13, 2013

Last month, about 175 Tern brand folding bikes were recalled.  The models recalled were: Eclipse S11i and Verge S11i, X10, X20 and X30h.  These bikes are popular with riders in urban cities because they fold up easily and can be carried on buses and subways.  For more detailed information regarding the bike description, visit: www.ternbicycles.com.

The bike's frame hinge cracks, which poses a fall hazard for riders.  Consumers should stop riding the bicycles immediately and contact the company to receive a new frame. The bikes were sold nationwide at authorized Stile/Tern dealers from January 2012 to May 2013 between $1,800 and $3,000.

How To Avoid Fall Injuries While Riding A Bike

In the summer, many bicyclists ride their bikes.  They may be riding their bicycles to exercise or just to get around in the city.  Because bicycles are often put in the garage during the winter, riders should always check their bicycles before they ride for the first time in the season.  Some parts may have come loose, or the bicycles may have been recalled.  It is always a good idea to have the bikes checked out by a professional at a local bicycle shop to make sure everything is in working order.

Injured By A Recalled Defective Bicycle In PA & NJ

Unfortunately, injuries may still occur even after the bicycles are checked and seem to be in proper working condition.  These injuries may be due to a design defect of the bike that the consumer cannot foresee or prevent.  If you were injured by a defective bicycle, you may have a products liability case against the manufacturer and be entitled to compensation.  Feel free to call the dangerous defective products liability lawyers at White and Williams LLP to discuss your case.  We offer a free initial consultation.  877.977.8396
