Examples of Instruction and Determination

Cycle & Equipment Faults

Bicycle fork failure; determined failure of the forks was caused by multiple accidents and not a construction failure. 


A fault with aero bars, determined there was a product failure of the part which caused the accident. 


Road Cases

Bicycle accident; fatality; determined crash was not as a result of a faulty assembly of the inner tube.


Bicycle accident: determined cause of the crash was a trap in a road surface defect causing the rider to be unseated.  Damage to cycle was consistent with it being stopped suddenly and not by a slip on the road surface. David Robinson V Scottish Borders (PD1637/15)


Off-Road Cases

Cyclist fell after chain jammed; advised would not support liability against the bike shop as more likely to be rider error.


Cyclist fell after back wheel released causing a jam; determined more likely to be a failure to adequately maintain equipment.
