Hoverboard Product Liability Claims & Injury Claims in Alabama

In an ideal world, a hoverboard could make the perfect gift since they appear to be fun, functional and exciting.

The reality of hoverboards are far different, however. Amazon and Overstock have already decided to stop selling hoverboards, citing safety concerns over the reported 10 hoverboard fires in 9 states (including Alabama).  Watch the dangers posed to this Alabama man when his hoverboard catches fire, and the dangers of a hoverboard become immediately apparent.

The dangerous possibilities posed by hoverboards opens up the possibility of a product liability lawsuit.

The hoverboards that have caught fire suffer from design and manufacturing defects, and when these defects cause unnecessary and significant injuries and harms, this sets the groundwork for product liability litigation. In the worst instances of hoverboard fires, the lawsuit may not stop at product liability.

For example, this hoverboard fire led to the destruction of a home, which opens up other legal issues depending on the accident and the damage sustained. Defective products also need to prevent your ability to injure yourself, and these hoverboards seem to clearly fall short of that standard. As such, even if the injuries sustained are minor or there was only minor property damage, you can still litigate since you can likely prove that there was an alternative design choice that could have prevented the injuries and harms sustained.

No matter the extent of your hoverboard injuries or damages, you can hold the manufacturer responsible for their defective and dangerous products. Noel B. Leonard is an Alabama injury attorney and product liability litigator who provides Baldwin, Mobile and Escambia Counties with the legal representation needed to help victims recover damages for their injuries.
