5 Dangerous Products To Avoid

Obtaining Compensation for Defective or Harmful Products on the Market

Not all products that make it to consumers are safe. In fact, some are dangerous and defective, causing serious harm to those that purchase or use them. If you are injured by a hazardous product, you might be entitled to compensation through a product liability lawsuit.

At Bailey Cowan Heckaman, we represent people who have been seriously injured by dangerous or defective products. Our lawyers have secured millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements on behalf of injured parties nationwide. Let us help you get the compensation you deserve.

Avoid these 5 defective products that can potentially cause significant harm:

1. Onewheel Electric Skateboards

At BCH Law, we have successfully recovered compensation for individuals who have been injured or lost a loved one in Onewheel nosedive accidents. The Onewheel is a self-balancing electric transportation device that can reach speeds of up to 20 miles per hour. 

Despite its growing popularity, the device is suspected of containing a significant design defect that causes it to suddenly shut off and nosedive toward the ground. The force of the impact can violently throw a rider off the device resulting in serious harm. 

Our attorneys have filed wrongful death lawsuits on behalf of families who have lost loved ones while riding on a Onewheel. We continue to litigate product liability cases against the manufacturer, Future Motion, Inc.

2. GMO Products

Individuals who have suffered significant health problems related to the consumption of food with genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) may be entitled to compensation. Eating GMO products, such as Monsanto’s corn, has been linked with serious ailments, including tumors and severe allergic reactions. 

3. 3M Earplugs

It is alleged that the dual-ended Combat Arms Earplugs, Version 2 (CAEv2) sold by 3M, contained a dangerous defect. It is believed that thousands of United States service members and veterans have sustained hearing loss, tinnitus, and other harm after relying on these earplugs during combat and training. BCH Law continues to investigate 3M Military Earplug cases. 

4. 3M Warming Blankets

After surgery, many patients are given warming blankets to help prevent hypothermia. The Bair Hugger Warming Blanket manufactured by 3M is believed to have caused deep-joint infections when used after orthopedic surgeries. The infections can result in life-threatening health problems and, in some cases, may require amputation. 

5. Cars Manufactured by GM

General Motors is one of the largest manufacturers of automobiles in the world. Unfortunately, not all of the vehicles that they produce are safe. It is believed that over 100 deaths can be linked to a faulty ignition switch in certain GM vehicles. The faulty ignition switch resulted in the recall of 39 million cars in 2014 alone. It is reported that employees knew of the defect for over a decade.

Fatal Onewheel Nosedive Accident Claims Life of Young Father 

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.

Onewheel Nosedive Accident Representation

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.
