Product Liability Claims for One-Wheel Skateboard Defects

The One-Wheel electronic skateboard has been under scrutiny lately after numerous technological and potentially dangerous defects came to light. If the balancing technology of the board suddenly stops working, then it can abruptly tip the front of the board downward, ejecting the rider. A One-Wheel skateboarder who is ejected at a high speed can be severely or fatally injured. Three wrongful deaths have already been linked to this defect.

One-Wheel Push Back Feature Defect

The One-Wheel skateboard from Future Motion has a “push back” feature that is meant to warn riders when the device is low on power or traveling at an unsafe speed. The push back feature is designed to slightly tilt the skateboard’s front upward and force the motor to slow down. While this feature is clever in design, it appears to be problematic in execution.

Some of the worst One-Wheel accidents are believed to have been caused by a defect with the push back feature. Instead of gradually slowing down the motorized skateboard, the feature’s defect causes it to drop the front of the board suddenly, wedging it against the ground without warning.

Harm Caused by One-Wheel Defects

When a One-Wheel defect throws a rider off the skateboard, the resulting injuries can be varied and severe. The risk depends on how fast the user was traveling and where the crash occurs.

People who have been thrown off a One-Wheel skateboard have suffered:

  • Broken bones
  • Concussions
  • Back injuries
  • Joint injuries

To date, three One-Wheel skateboard riders have lost their lives in crashes on these products. It is believed that the crashes were caused by the push back defect, which caught the riders off-guard and threw them off at high speeds.
