Peloton Recalls Tread+ Treadmills

On May 5, 2021 both Peloton the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recalled its Peloton Tread+ treadmill following numerous reports (70+) of injury resulting from the use of its product. [1]Peloton Tread+ Recall: What Owners Need to Know | Reviews by Wirecutter (nytimes.com)

 

Defect poses serious safety risks

Specifically, the Peloton Tread+ as originally designed and marketed posed serious risks of injury and death to children, pets, personal property, and users themselves for the product’s reported ability to pull such persons and objects underneath the running deck (i.e., the running platform) while in operation.[2]Peloton Recalls Tread Treadmills Due to Risk of Injury | CPSC.gov

The Peloton recall was not as well-intended and “voluntary” as first blush may indicate, however, as the company was reluctant to recall the Tread+ in the face of a reported death of a child connected to the use of its product—a claim included in a class action lawsuit filed against Peloton on April 20, 2021 in Northern California’s United States District Court.[3]Peloton slammed with class-action lawsuit that criticizes the fitness company for including a child in previous marketing for Tread Plus that has injured 39 so far (msn.com)

Frequently asked questions

What causes Peloton Tread+ accidents?
Causation, in law, is an intricate term. While the substance of the actual and proximate cause of the defect in the Peloton Tread+ treadmill, if any, is still being debated in the courts, the general problem associated with the treadmill is concerned with its tread belt.

First, the Peloton Tread+ was made with an unconventional belt design that uses individual, rigid, interconnected rubber slats that ride on a rail, while other traditional treadmills have a continuous rubber belt.[5]Peloton delays May launch of its less expensive treadmill in the U.S. (cnbc.com)

Second, and arguably the more important point, the treadmill is designed to leave a large gap between the floor and the belt tread, which (allegedly) causes objects that come in contact with the rear end of the belt to be pulled underneath the treadmill.[6]d

Sometimes these objects are exercise balls and other equipment that may affect the incline of the treadmill so significantly as to throw the user from same. Other times, the objects that come in contact with the rear end of the belt are the arms, legs, faces, and other bodily parts of children and adults alike that can result in their being pulled underneath the treadmill as well.

 

Should I stop using my Peloton Tread+ Treadmill even if I haven’t been injured?

Although the decision whether to stop using the Peloton Tread+ ultimately lies with the user, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) suggests that owners of Peloton Tread+ Treadmills immediately discontinue use of same. Moreover, Peloton has worked to create incentives for Tread+ owners to stop using their treadmills by offering full refunds until November 6, 2022.[7]Peloton Recalls Tread+ Treadmills After One Child Died and More than 70 Incidents Reported | CPSC.gov

In short, if you are currently a Peloton Tread+ owner and have been fortunate enough to avoid injury in your use of same, it would be wise to avoid potential injury and have your investment refunded, or follow one of the other options suggested by Peloton.

 

When should I hire a Peloton Lawyer?

In the state of Texas there is a Two-Years Limitations Period to bring suit for personal injury in
connection with a “products liability action.”[8]TEX. CIV. PRAC. & REM. CODE § 16.003 A Products Liability Action is an action against a manufacturer or seller for recovery of damages arising out of personal injury, death, or property damage allegedly caused by the defective product.

In short, the sooner you hire a Peloton Injury Lawyer, the better. If you or someone you know has been injured while using a Peloton Tread+ treadmill, contact one of our Peloton Injury Attorneys today at (713) 840-1411 to request a free consultation regarding your Peloton Injury Lawsuit.

 

What does it cost to hire a Peloton Attorney?

The short answer is: nothing up front, and a contingency fee, if and only if there is a successful recovery of compensation in your case. At the Padua Law Firm, PLLC, our Peloton Injury Lawyers are compensated for their legal representation in such matters by what’s known as a “contingency fee.” That is, at no upfront nor out-of-pocket cost to you in hiring our firm to represent you in your Peloton Injury Lawsuit, we will only receive a contingency fee that comes out of the gross settlement or receipt of a successful case. Simply, if
we don’t win, you don’t owe us anything, not even our expenses.
