The popular self-balancing skateboard, One-Wheel, revolutionized the industry when it first became available in 2015, but the single-wheel board has since caused many riders to endure painful injuries due to a product defect. According to many riders, the one-wheel board is prone to sudden stops, which deactivates the balancing technology within the board and causes it to take a nosedive, launching the rider forward. In some cases, the defect has caused the board to stop while the rider is traveling at high speeds, which has resulted in some very tragic wrongful deaths.
No one should have to lose their life from a defective product, especially when there are laws to prevent this from happening. The manufacturer of One-Wheel, Future Motion, has a responsibility to ensure the safety of their product prior to sale, but their negligence has caused injuries in some and multiple families to endure losing someone close to them. Our product liability attorneys have years of experience advocating for the rights of victimized individuals across the country, meaning they have what it takes to hold the negligent company accountable for its actions.
