One-Wheel Skateboard Lawsuit

Onewheel® is a self-balancing electric skateboard developed by Future Motion Inc. It was designed to be used as a recreational vehicle, allowing riders to move quickly and with great maneuverability. The board consists of a single wheel mounted on an aluminum frame. It is powered by an electric motor and can reach speeds up to 20 mph.

A one-wheel skateboard, however, can stop abruptly while in motion, potentially injuring or even killing the rider. Anapol Weiss provides legal representation for those injured by Onewheel skateboards. If you or a loved one has been injured or died on a One-Wheel skateboard, contact us today.

What Is the Problem Onewheel?

Onewheel lawsuits allege that the product is defective and unreasonably dangerous, and that the manufacturer and sellers have failed to provide adequate warnings regarding the risks associated with the product. Specifically, the lawsuits allege that the Onewheel board is prone to nosedive accidents, pushback, and other dangerous defects, and the manufacturer and sellers have failed to provide adequate warnings to riders about these risks associated with the product. The lawsuits also allege that the product is not adequately tested for safety, and that the manufacturer and sellers have failed to issue recalls or issue adequate warnings about the potential for serious injuries.

What Happens When a One-Wheel Shuts Off?

Onewheel products are designed with a feature that shuts off the motor when the board detects certain unsafe conditions, such as excessively high speeds or abnormal motion. This feature can cause riders to suddenly lose power and fall off the board, potentially leading to serious injury or death.

What Injuries Have Been Reported from Future Motion’s Onewheel Products ?

Onewheel products have been known to cause a variety of injuries, including neck trauma, head trauma, broken bones, spinal cord damage, and even death in some cases. Reports of Onewheel riders suffering from traumatic brain injuries, concussions, and other head injuries have become increasingly common. Other riders have reported suffering serious injuries such as broken wrists, shoulders, and ankles.

What Type of Compensation Can Victims Get After an Accident?

Victims of Onewheel accidents may be eligible for compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages caused by the accident. In addition, victims may be able to receive punitive damages if the manufacturer is found to be negligent in their design or manufacturing of the product.
