Future Motion Onewheel® Lawsuit

Future Motion’s Onewheel® products are electric skateboards with a single wheel in the middle of the board. Onewheel skateboards, however, may stop unexpectedly while in motion, throwing the rider from the board and putting them at risk of serious, even fatal, injuries.

Electric Onewheel Skateboards Put Riders at Serious Risk

Future Motion’s Onewheel products have a single wheel in the middle of the skateboard, with areas for the rider’s feet in front of and behind the wheel. These one-wheel electric skateboards are designed to balance themselves and allow the user to control speeds and steer while riding.

However, Onewheel skateboards may not function properly and can put riders at serious risk of harm. These skateboards can stop suddenly in motion and throw the user from the device by nosediving or pushback (falling forward or backward off the device).

In November 2022, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) warned consumers to stop using or avoid buying Onewheel skateboards.

“CPSC urges consumers not to buy the Onewheel [or] use it due to the ejection hazard....CPSC urges consumers NOT to resell or donate the Onewheel, so others are not put in danger by the hazard.”
– The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC)

Sadly, not buying or using a Onewheel isn’t enough for consumers who have already been seriously, if not fatally, hurt by these products.

The company has refused to issue a recall of their products over these risks, despite at least four deaths — and countless more injuries — between 2019 and 2021.

As a result, many families nationwide have turned to filing Future Motion Onewheel lawsuits to both hold the company accountable for its dangerous products and seek compensation for their injuries.

Have Onewheel electric skateboards been recalled? 

Not for this issue, no. However, Onewheel GT skateboards were recalled in August 2022 over a separate issue involving the footpad of the device staying in motion after the user dismounted. Future Motion issued a recall of the malfunctioning model to replace the footpads.

Regarding the risk of the skateboard stopping unexpectedly and ejecting users, the company has failed to act so far.
