Crash Hazard Prompts Rocky Mountain Bicycle Recall
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
The Rocky Mountain Bicycle company has
recalled around 1,300 mountain bikes due to crash hazards. The company reported
that the brake cable was not properly secured during manufacturing and
can cause the brake to fail. The 2018 Altitude, Instinct and Pipeline
bicycles were all sold in various colors but the model name is printed
on the tube stickers on the top tube of the bike. The company urges consumers
to discontinue use immediately and contact a Rocky Mountain dealer for
a free inspection and free repair. The bicycles were sold in 2017 between
June through November.
Bicycle accidents are on the rise in the United States with an estimated
$5.2 billion annual cost for injuries sustained in those accidents. Faulty
bicycle equipment not only poses a danger to the cyclist but other pedestrians
as well. Regulations are put into place to ensure consumer safety and
it is the responsibility of the company to alert all consumers of any
issues with their products. Injuries due to faulty or defective products
can become costly, may require time off of work and lost wages, cause
unnecessary stress and may require home construction for any permanent
injuries. This can cause the injured person to feel overwhelmed and not
sure where to start. If you or a loved one is injured by a faulty product
always contact a product liability attorney to discuss your options. An
attorney can be instrumental in helping you receive compensation for any
injuries you have sustained and help ease the stress and burden of your injuries.
