Apollo Dirt Bikes – Exploding Oil Crank Cases Injury Lawsuits

When riding a dirt bike, there are enough dangers on the path without worrying about mechanical defects causing accidents. Apollo dirt bikes have recently been discovered to have some defects involving their oil crank cases that could make these bikes dangerous to ride. Those that have experienced an exploding oil crank case on their Apollo dirt bike may have serious injuries. These injuries could be worthy of filing an injury lawsuit against the company for damages caused by this manufacturer defect.

Hot Oil Burn Injuries

A design or manufacturing defect in certain Apollo brand dirt bikes may cause the engine oil dipstick to rapidly disengage and come off the bike completely. This issue with the oil crank case is very dangerous, allowing hot engine oil to spew out uncontrollably. The hot oil can cause serious burn injuries to the rider of the bike and create crash scenarios that could result in various other injuries from impact.

This defect can occur at any time when riding these bikes, catching the rider off guard when the crank case malfunctions. Not only can the hot oil cause burns, the splashing oil can distract the rider, and a crash is almost imminent. Depending on where the oil dipstick comes loose, a rider could be put in a dangerous situation if they lose control of their bike. In the wrong area, this type of accident could be fatal or cause long-term disabilities.

Our team at Conley Griggs Partin LLP has many years of experience handling manufacturer defect and other types of personal injury cases.
