Contact a San Antonio injury lawyer as soon as possible in order to find out.

With regard to treadmills, a man recently broke his hip on a treadmill that he and his lawyer maintain was improperly repaired. The faulty repair is what the injury victim claims resulted in a sideways incline on the treadmill that led to his injury. According to the man, he had called for service on his Pro-Form XP 500 treadmill and received service the following day. However, after the repair tech had repaired the motor and replaced the tread, the man tried to use his treadmill and experienced what his lawyer described as excruciating pain.” The man allegedly sustained a broken hip, a serious personal injury, because the walking platform on the treadmill was not level and the belt was moving at a speed greater than what the setting indicated.

Because of the seriousness of the injury suffered the man, with the help of his lawyer, is seeking compensation for pain and suffering, medical costs, mental anguish, disfigurement, loss of consortium, loss of income, loss of enjoyment of life, and related court costs and lawyer’s fees. He alleges that the repair company was negligent in its failure to properly and correctly repair the treadmill and left it in an unsafe and injurious state.
