on August 23, 2021 in Class Action Lawsuit

Manufacturers must ensure that their products are safe to use. While the Onewheel can be a fun and fast way for people to get around, unfortunately, many riders have reported that they were seriously injured, or placed at risk of serious injury, due to one of the Onewheel’s several alleged safety defects.
The Arnold Law Firm has filed a class-action lawsuit that claims the Onewheel device has a design flaw, or other defects, that makes riding it inherently dangerous. The lawsuit also alleges that the manufacturer of Onewheel has not complied with consumer protection and warranty laws, thereby putting consumers and users of the product at serious risk.
Of the defects alleged, the most serious one causes the Onewheel to randomly and unexpectedly stop, resulting in the rider taking a “Nosedive.” This occurs because the motor can shut off without warning – no matter how fast, or slow, the Onewheel and its rider are traveling. This sudden seizure causes the rider to fly off of the board and can result in the rider slamming onto the ground nose first. When riders take a Nosedive at speeds up to 19 mph, it can lead to serious and permanent physical injuries.
Whether you have experienced an injury due to Nosedive or not, your Onewheel may still be defective and may be placing you at risk. Even if you have not been injured, you might have product liability claims under various state and federal consumer protection and warranty laws. Manufacturers, like Future Motion, Inc. which makes the Onewheel, not only have a responsibility to provide safe products to the public, they must also provide consumer warranties that require repairs or refunds, in certain situations.
Headquartered in Santa Cruz, California, Future Motion, Inc. is the manufacturer of Onewheel XR and Onewheel Pint. The company has sold thousands of Onewheel XR and Onewheel Pint devices nationwide.

Thank you Arnold Law Firm! 🤗A very special Thank You to Sal, Dominic & Jeff! 🤗🤗🤗
They always keep me up to date on my case. I also felt it was done in a timely manner!
Arnold Law firm provided me with an amazing experience. They were super communicative and assisted me with any needs or questions that I had during my journey to recovery and through financial hardship due to my car accident. I was hit by an uninsured motorist and would have been completely overwhelmed by all of the bills, paperwork, insurance nuances, and legal action needed. Jesus Garcia was an absolute pleasure to work with and I couldn’t be happier with the results.
Met with a lawyer who is taking care of my wife's potential lawsuit. He was nice and his assistant is really on top of things.I'd recommend them if you need representation. No upfront costs and reasonable expectations when suit is settled.
Excellent service.... All questions are answered promptly and thoroughly...Most of all, the knowledge and expertise are outstanding.
