Trek Bike Recalled Follows a Rider’s Paralysis

Thomas Northcut/Digital Vision/Thinkstock bikes can be a potential deathtrap. You need an experienced lawyer to evaluate any potential claim you may have.

Of three so far reported Trek bike injuries, one has sadly resulted in the young and vibrant rider suffering paralysis. People injured by a bike or other defective product, with the right help, can get compensation for their medical expenses, their loss of income, their pain and suffering, and many other types of damages. When an unfortunate spinal cord injury happens, home care, loss of earnings, rehabilitation, and your lost “earing capacity” or possible future earnings, may be recoverable by claim or lawsuit. Our legal team stands ready to help people in such situations.

An injury to the spinal cord can cause devastating effects on many parts of people’s bodies and lives. According to a study by the Mayo Clinic, the body effects most often suffered by spinal cord victims include:

  • A Loss of bodily mobility may possibly cause an increased risk of diabetes or cardiovascular disease.
  • Reduced Skin sensation after an injury to the spinal cord may result. This means that the skin may not be able to send the correct messages to your brain if it suffers harm.
  • Reduced circulatory control is among possible circulation problems that may occur. These can range from swelling of the extremities to low blood pressure.
  • Damage to your respiratory system may result from a spinal injury. Coughing and Breathing may become much more difficult.
  • Loss of muscle tone may result from a spinal injury. Your muscles become flaccid or limp. You may suffer from tightening of the limbs or motion of the limbs, known as spasticity.
  • Spinal injuries can badly damage your sexual health. Your overall functioning as a sexual person may be negatively affected.
  • Spinal injuries can cause lasting or permanent pain. You may get ongoing joint or muscle pain from overuse or underuse involving certain muscles groups in your body. You may suffer from nerve pain on an ongoing basis.
  • Spinal Injuries frequently cause various levels of depression. You may suffer from sudden changes in your lifestyle. This can induce depression in some people.

You need an experienced attorney on your side if you suffer any of these injuries from a Trek Bicycle. Our legal team has over 20 years of experience making companies who manufacture defective products, or design defective products, pay.

Products liability cases require resources and experience. We have the experience. We also have the resources to hire the right expert witnesses to prove your case. Trek will have its own experienced, professional, expert witnesses to testify that either there is nothing wrong with the bike or that there is nothing wrong with you. We have the experience to defeat both lines of attack most defendants use.

Your initial consultation about you or your loved one’s Trek Bicycle accident is always free. Our legal team works on a “continent fee” basis in cases such as this. Our fee is a percentage of what we recover for you. If you don’t get a recovery we don’t get a fee. It is that simple. Don’t try and fight the big manufacturer on your own. Don’t ignore the damages that they caused to you or your property. Get an experienced attorney on your side and protect your rights.
