Injuries that are due to a part of a bike breaking or not working properly may be the basis for a product liability case against the manufacturer and/or seller of the bicycle or bicycle part. Illinois Bicycle Lawyer Mike Keating is currently handling multiple product liability cases on behalf of bicyclists when parts of their bicycles unexpectedly broke or did not work properly. The most common product liability case stems from an incident where a part "snaps" and the bicyclist loses control and crashes.
