In our latest blog update, we shed light on a concerning issue surrounding the Onewheel electric skateboard. In recent developments, a wave of serious injuries has prompted the Consumer Product Safety Commission to issue a recall on all models of Onewheel boards manufactured by Future Motion Inc. The recall comes as a response to numerous reports detailing accidents resulting in severe bodily harm and tragically, even loss of life.

The fun of Onewheel is undeniable—a sleek, single-wheel skateboard powered by an electric motor, promising an exhilarating ride. However, beneath its innovative design lies a dangerous flaw. Riders have experienced sudden and unexpected stops, catapulting them forcefully over the device. These events occur randomly and can be influenced by various factors such as rider weight, tire pressure, battery level, and balance. The unpredictability of these events amplifies the risk, making it nearly impossible for riders to anticipate and prevent accidents.

The consequences of these accidents are dire. From traumatic brain injuries and concussions to paralysis, fractures, and ligament damage, the toll on victims is significant. Tragically, between 2019 and 2021, four deaths have been attributed to Onewheel accidents. Such incidents not only devastate individuals and families but also raise serious concerns about product safety and accountability.

In response to mounting reports of injuries and fatalities, the CPSC, in collaboration with Future Motion Inc., has initiated a recall of all Onewheel electric skateboards as of September 2023. The Onewheel recall advises consumers to immediately cease using the recalled boards to prevent further harm. This proactive measure aims to mitigate the risks posed by the defective design and protect the safety of riders. The recalled Onewheel Electric Skateboards were sold online at www.onewheel.com and other websites and at independent shops nationwide from January 2014 through September 2023.

At Clark, Perdue & List, we recognize the gravity of these incidents and the impact they have on victims and their loved ones. Our team is actively investigating cases on behalf of individuals who have suffered serious bodily injuries due to Onewheel accidents. If you or someone you know has been affected by these defective products, contact us to help you seek justice and fair compensation.
