When Bicycle Defects Cause Accidents
Many parts of a bike and protective rider equipment can fail and subject the rider to injury or to a worsening of injuries that otherwise occur. Weakness of the metal frame can cause a fracture of the frame or its components. A defective tire may deflate or blow out, causing the bike and its rider to suddenly veer off the roadway. A broken pedal can cause the bicyclist to fall or be thrown from the bicycle.
Bicycle equipment can also be defective: ranging from a helmet that is improperly fitted and fails to protect the rider as promised during a crash to some failure of bicycle shoes and pedal clips either in their function or their fit. A rider can also be injured if a recommended bike is the wrong size or wrong for the type of intended riding or for the skill level of the rider.
