Schwinn Tone Electric Scooter Recalled For Handlebar Grip Problem

Scooters have been in for a while now. No, we're not talking about machines you sit on and drive around. Rather, the scooters we're discussing have two wheels, a deck to stand on, and handlebars to hold and steer. Some people view the devices as kid toys, and that's fine. That is what they are on many occasions, but scooters can also be transportation for adults.

Consumers often use these items to play, do tricks, and have fun. Or, in other instances, they use them to travel to work, the mall, or friends' houses. Regardless of why you're all about that scooter life, do yourself a favor and pay attention to this consumer alert. It has come to our attention that particular scooters could put Bradenton residents or their loved ones in danger.



A Handlebar Grip Problem


Approximately 11,340 Schwinn Tone Electric Scooters in circulation may have handlebar grips that loosen or crack. Both issues pose fall and injury hazards to riders. In fact, Pacific Cycle, the manufacturer, has already received nine reports of incidents, and in at least one of them, the person obtained bruises and abrasions. This dilemma may not sound all that catastrophic, but it could be. All it would take is for an individual to land wrong. Then, they might end up with a fractured or broken bone, traumatic brain injury, or something else on the severe end of the spectrum.

These e-scooters could be just about anywhere, even right here in Bradenton. That is because they were sold from May 2020 through February 2021 at bicycle shops nationwide. Not to mention, consumers were also able to order them online at Schwinnbikes.com and Amazon.com. The units have about 2-foot boards, "T" handlebars, and they feature either black or white coloring. All models of Schwinn Tone Electric Scooters are affected, including:

• Tone 1
• Tone 2
• Tone 3

If you own one of these e-scooters, it's probably best to stop using it immediately. Failing to do so could end in disaster and leave you seriously hurt. But what if you do get hurt? What then?

You Might Have The Grounds To Seek Compensation


Manufacturers are liable for any harm their products cause consumers. And why shouldn't they be? These items are supposed to be safe when they make it to the open market. However, if you pay attention to the news, you know that's not always what happens. There are regularly stories about malfunctioning airbag canisters, faulty seat belts, and more. Unfortunately, though, most companies won't simply hand it over because you have the grounds to seek compensation.

Instead, big corporations use lawyers to discredit injury claims. Their primary objective is to prevent clients from paying out hefty sums. Sometimes, they offer victims low settlements, hoping they'll settle. Then, in other instances, the attorneys fight tooth and nail to ensure the plaintiff goes home with nothing. That's why you need top-notch legal representation in your corner.

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
