 one wheel skateboard accident

One Wheel Skateboard

A one-wheel skateboard has become a popular item to have. However, there have been reports of these items having some type of product defect that makes them not as safe as you would hope. If you were injured as a result of using a one wheel skateboard, you may be eligible for compensation. To file a lawsuit, you will need a team of expert product liability attorneys to help, especially with more serious cases like wrongful deaths. Reading on, you can learn more about these types of cases and how to improve the outcomes for your case.

Safety Concerns with One Wheel Skateboards

While the manufacturer insists that their products are safe, there are some safety concerns. The manufacturer states that the technology used for these products ensures that the product is safe and helps the user remain balanced.

However, there is evidence that this isn’t necessarily the case. In fact, there are many lawsuits that have shown that various riders suffered injuries that have altered the users’ life, including causing life-threatening injuries. There have even been deaths that have been reported. In many cases, these accidents are the result of a sudden shutoff. This is where the power suddenly stops and causes the rider to take a nosedive.

Even the most experienced user taking all of the necessary precautions can result in a major accident. Your skill on a one wheel skateboard cannot help if the power suddenly shuts off.

Steps to Take After a One Wheel Skateboard Accident

It can be scary immediately after a one wheel skateboard accident. By understanding exactly what you should do immediately following your accident, you can increase your chances of getting the compensation that you deserve for your injuries. This section will take a closer look at what your next steps should be.

The first thing that you should do if you are a witness to this type of accident is to make sure that the injured person is safe. You want to protect them from any traffic however in the safest way possible. If they can move, try to help them out of the way. If they are severely injured, do what you can to divert the oncoming traffic. Do not try to move them if they are severely injured. If you are the injured party, you need to do what you can to stay safe if possible.

If you are the injured party and you feel well enough to stand up, move at a slower pace while listening to your body. Find your way to a hospital or care provider. If you can’t move or don’t feel comfortable enough to do so, call an ambulance to get the medical attention that you need. Even if you feel fine after the accident, you should get checked out as soon as possible because you could have more serious injuries than you realize.

You should also keep in mind that you need to preserve all of the evidence that you possibly can. Be sure to maintain possession of the one-wheel skateboard. Do what you can to photograph the scene of the accident and your injuries. You should also write down a complete description of the accident. If possible, get information from any witnesses including whatever they saw and their contact information.

After you do all of this, get into contact with the manufacturer of the one wheel. You should not give them your skateboard, even when asked. It’s also very important that you don’t assign any blame to yourself or the area where you are riding the skateboard. If your accident was the result of a nosedive or a sudden shutoff, it’s essential that you say that. Stick to only the facts of how the skateboard performed.

It’s also important to get a lawyer as soon as possible. It is suggested that you do this prior to you contacting the manufacturer.  The product liability lawyer can speak to the manufacturer for you so that you don’t accidentally say something that could negatively impact your case.

How a Product Liability Lawyer Can Help

After seeking medical attention, you should contact a product liability lawyer as soon as possible after your accident. There are a few reasons why this is so important. First of all, this is essential because it helps you maintain the integrity of your evidence. This is especially important when it comes to witness statements. If you wait too long, you and your witnesses may forget details about the case. The irregularities in the statements can negatively impact your case. This is also a good idea because it allows you to get a lawyer involved in the process sooner. This not only means that you can get your money sooner, but it can also make sure that you don’t run out of time for your case due to the statute of limitations.

When you contact a lawyer, give them any evidence that you have including medical documentation. They will take your evidence and will take a look at whether or not you have a case. If they determine that you do have a case, they will compile even more evidence to strengthen your case so that you get the best outcomes for your case. Once you get a lawyer, you should cease any contact with the manufacturer. The lawyer will take care of any future correspondence so that you don’t have to worry about it.

A lawyer will walk you through the entire process so that you know exactly what you can expect every step of the way. The goal is to get a fair settlement for damages through a negotiations process outside of court. However, an experienced lawyer will be ready to fight for you in court if necessary.
