Injured By a Onewheel Electric Skateboard?

Protecting those who have been wrongfully harmed

Companies, employers, and individuals have a “duty of care.” Everyone has the obligation to avoid actions or situations that may have put you in any harm.

If you have been injured in any way – medical, physical, and emotional harm – it is important to contact a reputable lawyer right away. At Cronauer Law, we have proven that we can be trusted with the most complex cases.

The Severity of Onewheel Injuries and Recent Recall

Every adventure sport bound by the rush of adrenaline also carries inherent risks, but when the equipment you trust fails, the outcome can be catastrophic. Many users of Onewheel Electric Skateboards have experienced this harsh reality firsthand. The thrill and convenience of these popular devices have been overshadowed by reports of serious injuries, including broken bones, concussion, and severe lacerations to name but a few.

Following an alarming surge in reported injuries, Future Motion – the producer of Onewheel devices, was forced to take significant action. Collaborating with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the company issued a recall for all Onewheel self-balancing electric skateboards. This move was far from a mere precautionary measure, but rather a required action in light of the numerous riders who sustained injuries from unanticipated nosedive incidents. Initially, Onewheel didn’t cooperate, but eventually compliance was achieved.

The recall was initiated due to a safety concern surrounding the device’s capacity to maintain its balancing capability, causing it to unexpectedly stop operating while in use. This malfunction, popularly known within the user community as the ‘nosedive,’ resulted in riders being thrown off the board, leading to the reported injuries.

This recall revealed a shocking truth—a day of fun can turn into a lifetime of suffering due to a manufacturer’s oversight. If you have been a victim of such an event and suffered injuries due to a Onewheel malfunction, you may be eligible for compensation. Our experienced legal team can help guide you through the complex process of asserting your rights and getting you the justice you deserve.

Understanding Your Legal Rights & Potential Compensation in Illinois

Claiming compensation for injuries sustained from products like Onewheel Electric Skateboards can be complex, but it’s crucial to understand your legal rights as a victim in Illinois. Under our state’s product liability law, you may be entitled to file a claim against Future Motion or other responsible parties who failed to guarantee the safety of their products.

You may be entitled to compensation

We serve clients across the nation who have sustained significant injuries or have been subjected to fatal harm due to defective products or the carelessness, irresponsibility, or deliberate misconduct of manufacturers. We understand the overwhelming physical, emotional, and financial strains our clients face during these challenging circumstances. We strive ceaselessly to attain the rightful compensation owed to them.

If you or a loved one has been affected by a defective product or negligence on the part of a manufacturer, reach out to us today. You can contact us directly at (815) 895-8585.

In terms of compensation, several variables are considered. The severity of your injuries, medical expenses incurred, income lost from being unable to work, the extent of your pain and suffering, and any future medical care or adjustments you may require are all factored in. Ideally, successful claims should cover these costs, recouping you for all the damages you have endured due to your use of the faulty product.

Several types of claims can be pursued in these scenarios. They include Negligence, where you claim that the company failed in its duty to ensure the product was safe for use, or Strict Liability, where it’s argued that the product was inherently dangerous regardless of the care taken to make and sell it. Additionally, a Breach of Warranty claim may be filed if the product failed to live up to express or implied assurances of safety and performance.

Importance of collecting evidence

Collecting relevant evidence to support your claim is vital. This may include your medical records, testimonies from medical experts regarding your injuries, wage statements to show lost earnings, photographs or videos relating to your accident, and any recall notices or safety advisories issued by the manufacturer.

Consult with confidence – your case evaluation is on us.
No charges, no commitment, just clarity on your legal standing.

 Backed by our historic 12-year streak of victories.

How much time do you have to file a case?

In Illinois, you have two years from the date of your injury to file a claim for any harm you’ve suffered. This two-year time limit is called the Statute of Limitations. If you miss this deadline, even a serious injury won’t allow you to get compensation. A lawyer can guide you through this process, ensuring you understand all the rules and deadlines. Building a claim can take time, so it’s crucial to talk to a lawyer as soon as possible.

How do I know I have a case?

If you were injured in any way–medically, emotionally, physically, in a car, at work, on the street–then you may have a case. Employers, companies, and individuals have a “duty of care.” This term refers to each person’s obligation to avoid actions or situations that endanger other people.

Personal injury attorneys offer their services on what is called a “contingency fee” basis. That means we pay for all the upfront costs of your case–hiring specialists, paying court fees, even assessing medical care. You owe us nothing, and we only take a fee if you win your case.

As soon as possible, ideally. Give our personal injury law firm a call to speak with one of our staff members confidentially, even if it’s not normal business hours where you are. Also feel free to fill out our contact form with some basic information about you and your case. A member of our team will get back to you as soon as possible.

Once we’ve investigated the basic details of your injuries and your case, we’ll be able to tell you how much compensation you’re entitled to. While we (and no ethical attorney) can make promises regarding your case, we can help calculate the costs and lost wages caused by your harm.

At Cronauer Law, our experienced team has the breadth and depth of expertise required to handle a wide array of cases. Our practice areas span from automobile accidents and slip-and-fall injuries to complex commercial litigation and trucking accidents. We are also well-versed in navigating the intricacies of product liability cases, including those involving injuries sustained from defective products, such as One Wheel devices.

Duty of Care

In tort law, a duty of care is a legal obligation which is imposed on an individual requiring adherence to a standard of reasonable care while performing any acts that could foreseeably harm others. It is the first element that must be established to proceed with an action in negligence. The claimant must be able to show a duty of care imposed by law which the defendant has breached. In turn, breaching a duty may subject an individual to liability. The duty of care may be imposed by operation of law between individuals with no current direct relationship (familial or contractual or otherwise), but eventually become related in some manner, as defined by common law (meaning case law).
