What Do We Know About Peloton Lawsuits?

Peloton is a popular home fitness company that manufacturers stationary bikes and treadmills. The Peloton Tread+ is advertised as a highly sophisticated, one-of-a-kind treadmill due to its  design and unique user experience. The Peloton Tread+ has been on the market since 2018 and was sold only in the United States.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission alerted consumers about the dangers of the Peloton Tread + following the death of a six-year-old child in March, 2021. Three months later Peloton announced a voluntary recall of more than 125,000 Tread+ machines. Peloton’s recall noted 72 reports of injuries to adults, children, and pets. Some of these injuries were serious and permanent.

Two class action lawsuits have been filed by consumers who have been injured by Peloton Tread+ machines. The lawsuits claim that a design flaw in the Peloton Tread+ renders it unsafe for use, especially for children. The lawsuits also allege that Peloton failed to adequately warn about the potential risks of injury associated with its treadmill.

Peloton Tread+ Injuries

Peloton Tread+ has caused serious injuries when adults, kids, and pets have become pinned or jammed beneath the back of the machine. The machine’s belt design increases the likelihood of injuries because its rigid interlocking slats form a larger gap between the belt and floor than is typically found in other treadmills. This enlarged space increases the risk of a person, child, or pet becoming trapped by the machine. Peloton’s recall notice stated that 29 of the reported injuries involved children and included second and third-degree abrasions and broken bones.

Can I Recover Compensation for My Injuries in a Peloton Tread+ Lawsuit?

If you or a loved one has been injured by a Peloton Tread+, you may recover compensation for any or all of the following:

  • Past and future medical expenses;
  • Past and future pain and suffering;
  • Loss of wages; and
  • Other economic losses related to your injury.

Peloton Tread+ Recalls

In April 2021, Peloton told consumers that they could continue to safely use its Tread+ treadmill despite pressure from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission to issue a voluntary recall of the product. One month later, Peloton acknowledged the Commission’s concerns and recognized the need for a recall. Peloton issued an additional recall of Peloton Tread treadmills due to the risk of the touchscreen detaching and falling.
