Whether you have spent a couple hundred dollars on your bicycle or several thousand, you expect it to be reasonably safe. But sometimes, a manufacturer will cut corners by rushing the design, using cheap component parts or failing to provide proper warnings and instructions. Sometimes defective bikes get recalled by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). For instance, already in 2012, the CPSC has recalled over 10,000 bikes from two different manufacturers because they pose a risk of injury due to cracking frames and breaking forks. But more often than not, the safety problem is not identified in time and a serious bicycle accident occurs.
If you or a loved one has been involved in a serious bicycle accident due to a defective bicycle or equipment, you should preserve all parts of the bike and, if it is still available, any packaging or literature received at the time of purchase. Do not repair the bike, wash it or otherwise alter it from its accident condition.
