A fatal Onewheel nosedive accident has claimed the life of a young father in Gypsum, Colorado. According to a complaint filed by Bailey Cowan Heckaman on behalf of the victim’s estate and his family, Mr. Bunnell was riding a Onewheel on December 2, 2021, when the device suddenly shut off, causing the front of the board to dip abruptly.
The unexpected nosedive violently ejected Mr. Bunnell from the electric skateboard onto the pavement knocking him unconscious. The impact, witnessed by Mr. Bunnell’s young son, caused severe head and brain trauma. Paramedics were called to the scene, where Mr. Bunnell temporarily regained consciousness before returning to his residence.
Once home, his condition deteriorated quickly, resulting in his transport to a local hospital before having to be airlifted to a trauma center in Denver, Colorado. Despite lifesaving efforts and emergency surgery, Mr. Bunnell succumbed to his injuries related to the Onewheel accident.
Mr. Bunnell is not the first Onewheel accident victim. Tragically several other individuals have been seriously injured while riding the device. At BCH, our experienced lawyers continue to investigate and file legal claims on behalf of individuals who have been injured or lost a loved one in Onewheel accidents.
As noted in the complaints filed on behalf of the victims, we believe that Onewheel manufacturer Future Motion, Inc. downplayed the risks of riding the electric skateboard, failed to adequately warn consumers about the propensity for the device to shut down, and misled consumers into believing that the device was safe for ordinary use.
Additionally, we believe that the device contains a dangerous design defect that resulted in the injury or death of multiple victims. Our attorneys continue to litigate these cases pursuing justice on behalf of those injured or killed.
