Many people like to stay fit and maintain their shape and figure all around the world by exercising in their very own homes. Some have even designed and built entire home gyms that rival even some public gymnasiums that are in cities all over the Earth. However, there are many safety concerns to keep in mind when using exercise equipment in your own home—not the least of which is recalled exercise equipment and machinery.
One of the most popular exercise machines, the Total Gym XL fitness machine has even experienced a recall. This product was sold nationwide on infomercials from the company Total Gym Fitness LLC. But, it was found that some models use a lever pin setup in their machine that could fail, which could cause a user to fall and suffer any number of injuries. No incidents or injuries were reported as a result of this, but the company felt the recall was necessary to prevent any future incidents.
It is quite easy to suffer a variety of serious injuries while using defective exercise equipment and it happens more often than people realize. If you were permanently or severely injured in this way, you may have a case against the manufacturer. You should consult a Chicago personal injury lawyer or qualified legal professional to find out more information.
