Bike Parts Recall Lawyer
Each bike parts recall lawyer at our firm has significant experience in defending the rights of innocent riders who were seriously injured due to defective or dangerous bicycle parts.
When a bike part is recalled by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), it means that this part is dangerous, unsafe, or defective may pose the risk of serious injury or even wrongful death. In many cases, it takes multiple injury reports before bike companies or the CPSC issue a bike part recall—and this is too late for the riders who have already suffered. Additionally, many bike owners may not be aware when a recall has been issued for their bike or its parts, so they don’t realize they may be at risk.
