After a case that has taken
over nine years to bring a result, Jim Warner and his wife finally have
justice. In 2000, they bought a “Bowflex Power Pro” system, the popular in home
weightlifting machine. Two years later,
while properly using the machine, Warner was lifting weights when the bench
snapped, and caused a herniated disc in his upper back. He continues to have nerve damage and his
right arm will never recover.
There have been other
reports of other injuries from the cheaply made bench. This particular case was awarded over
$2.3M. Unfortunately, Bowflex continues
to manufacture these defective to the detriment of society. If you have a
Bowflex system, check the structural integrity before using it.
