Segway, Inc, maker of the upright scooter-like vehicle of the name name, has faced a dozen lawsuits so far filed by customers who claim to have been injured by faulty products. Segway has declared two recalls since the company began, one in 2003 because of Segways that suddenly stopped once their batteries ran out, and once in 2006 when software glitches were causing some scooters to suddenly move backwards. The company has largely remained silent about the lawsuits.
One of the most recent lawsuits was filed by Rick Wagner in May 2007. Wagner claims he and his son were riding new Segways home from a Sam’s Club when his suddenly reversed, causing him to fall and break his neck.
