New York State Law Governing Defective Bicycle Products

A defective product is any item that, in some way, fails to perform its intended use. This failure can result from a defect in the design of the product, an error in the manufacturing process, or even inaccurate or inadequate instructions on how to operate the product. Whatever the cause, using a defective product can lead to personal injury. When bringing forward a defective bicycle product liability case, it is important to know which product defects are covered by the law. In New York State, this includes:

  1. Defects In Design: In this instance, the injury resulted from a poorly designed bicycle component or piece of equipment. In most states, the injured party must prove that it was a design flaw that caused their accident;
  2. Defective Bicycle ProductsDefects In Manufacturing: A defect in the manufacturing of the product itself caused the product to malfunction; and
  3. Failure To Warn: Injury resulted when a company failed to provide clear or adequate instructions as to the proper use of the product.

A defective product is not limited to issues with the bicycle itself. This can include the equipment that accompanies bicycles and is intended for the safety of bicyclists. Helmets, bells, brakes, tires, reflective devices, and lamps are all products that, in the event of failure, could lead to accidents or increase the severity of the injuries sustained.
