On June 1, 2023, Jetson issued a recall for their Nova and Star 3-Wheel Kick Scooters. According to the recall, number 23-211, the rear wheel of the scooter can loosen or fall off the scooter, resulting in a fall risk to children. The recall affects over 15,000 units of the scooters.
About the scooters – the scooters were available in five different colors, including red, purple, blue, teal, and green. The scooters measure 23 inches tall by 11 inches wide by 5.8 inches deep. The scooters have a label on the base with the model number and serial numbers.
The following models and serial numbers are included in the recall:
- JNOVA-BLU (serial numbers 61302BLU072200001 to 61302BLU072203800)
- JNOVA-GRN (serial numbers 61302GRN082200001 to 61425GRN112200900)

- JSTAR-CAN-BLU serial numbers (61363BLU072221121 to 61363BLU0722013468)
According to the recall, there have been at least twelve reports of the wheels loosening or falling off the scooters; this includes one report of a child falling and suffering scratches/bruises in the face.
The recalled scooters were sold in Target stores nationwide and online at Target.com and www.ridejetson.com for approximately $40 each from September 2022 to February 2023.
The company is urging affected consumers to stop using the affected scooters and contact them for a free repair kit, which includes two screws, two bolts, an Allen key, repair instructions and a QR code to a video. Although this remedy might be enough for consumers whose children were not harmed, consumers who were directly affected by the defective product should not contact the company for a repair kit.

Can I File a Class Action Lawsuit?
When it comes to defective products, class action claims and mass torts claims are common; this is because many consumers can be affected by the defective products. In class action lawsuits, affected consumers can come together to take legal action against the product manufacturer. Is there a class action lawsuit? Although there is still not a class action lawsuit, there could be one relatively soon – as more affected consumers come forward and seek legal help. How can I join or be a part of a class action lawsuit? Joining a class action lawsuit is typically as simple as reaching out to a class action lawyer. Your lawyer will guide you every step of the way.
Is filing a class action lawsuit better than filing a single action injury claim? The answer to this question depends on the specific details surrounding your claim. An experience attorney will be able to advise you and help you determine the best type of claim to pursue.

Why Is Heli Skiing So Dangerous?
People are injured or killed by heli skiing activities, because of the nature of the sport. The action of heli skiing will involve skiing or snowboarding in the remote backcountry areas of a mountain to experience snow that no one has probably skied on before. It will be a seriously risky and hazardous adventure, that can be marred with dangerous conditions, including:
- Fatal falling into crevices
- Collisions with trees and other stationery objects
Adventurous individuals and thrill seekers will jump at the chance to go heli skiing. Individuals who are dreaming of trekking on snow no one has skied on before, and traversing in back country terrain will pursue the extreme sport of heli skiing. These skiers will risk everything to be able to ski at some of the world’s most sought after locations, and they will also risk their lives for there are seriously deadly hazards and risks of death involved with the sport of heli skiing.
What Are the Typical Risks of Heli Skiing?
The typical risks of heli skiing are some of the same risks of skiing, only worse. The typical hazards that can befall heli skiers include:
- Avalanches coming off of a mountain burying a skier
- Hitting a tree well
- Going off of a cliff
- Falling into a glacier crevasse
- Hitting a buried natural obstacle
- Going into challenging travel conditions
- Experiencing an unintended fall off of a cliff
- Getting stuck in a freak blizzard
- Head injuries that lead to fatal coma
The risks of heli skiing in backcountry areas will always be there, and a heli skier will need to always weigh those risks before heading out to ski from a helicopter. Many times, there is no one on the ground to verify the safety of the conditions, before the person exits the helicopter to begin a downhill skiing run.
Why Are the Helicopter Skiing Guides Responsible for Your Safety When You Are Heli Skiing?
A helicopter skiing guide is responsible for you, if you pay the guide to take you to a heli skiing location and help you exit the helicopter – that individual is responsible to ensure your safety at all stages of your extreme sporting trip. This means that the heli skiing guide needs to understand and know how to read and identify dangerous conditions on the snow mountain that you are skiing, and you will have put your trust, albeit your life, in the hands of the heli skiing guide. If you are injured on a heli skiing extreme sporting trip, the heli skiing guide, the guide company and possibly other parties will be responsible for paying you for your losses, damages, personal injuries and other expenses related to your heli skiing accident case.
