It might be considered negligent , however, I see a problem when you say "in due time". What does that mean? How long were you aware that the pedal was placed wrong. This would go toward your own negligence.


If the bicycle was not assembled correctly from the factory and you sustained damages as a result of it, the retailer and the manufacturer could be held liable for your damages. I suggest you talk to a PI lawyer nest to you. Best of luck.

You have a claim for negligence. The statute of limitations will likely be two years from the date of purchase, but this can be tricky. Consult an attorney immediately
