Cycle Force has issued a recall for adult bike helmets due to the risk of head injury. The recalled Ventura helmet models include numbers 731434, 731436, 733192, and 733194 in various colors such as white carbon, neon yellow, white/pink, and white/orange. These helmets fail to comply with the positional stability requirement of the CPSC federal safety standard for bicycle helmets, making them inadequate for protecting the head in case of a crash.
To address the defect, consumers are advised to stop using the recalled helmets immediately and seek a full refund from Cycle Force. The refund process requires destroying the helmet by cutting off the straps, completing a form on the official website, providing photos of the helmet with the straps cut off as proof of destruction, and finally disposing of the recalled helmet. Cycle Force is reaching out to all purchasers directly to ensure awareness of the recall.
Fortunately, no incidents or injuries have been reported thus far. However, approximately 1,750 units of these helmets have been sold nationwide. They were available at Home Depot, JCPenney, Kohls, Play It Again Sports, independent sports and bicycle stores, as well as online platforms like InGearOutfitters.com, Walmart.com, and Amazon.com. The helmets were sold between October 2017 and January 2023 at a price of approximately $40.
For further information or assistance, consumers can contact Cycle Force via their email at email@example.com or visit the websites www.bikeaidonline.com/recall-ventura-sport-helmet or www.bikeaidonline.com, where they can find more details under the “RECALLS” section. Stay informed and prioritize safety when it comes to your bike helmet.
If you have experienced a head or brain injury due to a defective product, you may be eligible to pursue a product liability lawsuit. Product liability refers to the legal responsibility of manufacturers, distributors, or sellers for injuries caused by their defective products.
To determine whether you have a valid claim, several factors need to be considered, such as:
- Defective Product: You must establish that the product in question was defective in some way. There are three main types of defects that can form the basis of a product liability claim: design defects, manufacturing defects, and marketing defects (such as inadequate warnings or instructions).
- Injury or Damages: You need to provide evidence of the head or brain injury you sustained as a result of using the defective product. This can include medical records, bills, and expert opinions.
- Causal Link: It’s crucial to demonstrate a direct causal link between the defect in the product and your injury. This means showing that the defect was the primary cause of your head or brain injury.
- Statute of Limitations: Each jurisdiction has a specific time limit within which you must file a product liability lawsuit. It’s important to be aware of these time limits to avoid losing your right to seek compensation.
- Consult Our Attorneys: It’s advisable to consult with a personal injury attorney who specializes in product liability cases. They can evaluate the merits of your case, guide you through the legal process, and help you pursue fair compensation for your injuries.
Remember, product liability laws can vary depending on your jurisdiction, so it’s crucial to seek legal advice from one of our legal professionals who is familiar with the relevant laws and regulations.
