Trek Bike Recall Injury Lawyers

Trek Bike Recall Injury Lawyers

A Trek bike recall was issued on April 21 after it was determined that potentially defective front brakes on some Trek bikes may put riders at risk of a bike crash or dangerous fall. Our Trek bike recall lawyers are aware of more than one case where a cyclist was seriously injured as a result of defective brakes on these popular bicycles. We are now conducting investigations nationwide to ensure that injured riders of recalled Trek bikes recover the compensation to which they are entitled.


Injuries linked to Recalled Trek Bicycles

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued a Trek bike recall on April 21, 2015 when it was confirmed that nearly 1 million bicycles may have a defective disc brake system. The recall applies to all models of Trek bikes made from 2000 through 2015 that have a quick release lever near the front wheel hub to operate front disc brakes.  It has been determined that this quick release lever may release on its own and cause the front wheel of the Trek bicycle to stop suddenly.

At this time, at least three injuries have been attributed to faulty Trek bike disc brake releases. One rider fell from his or her bicycle when it stopped suddenly and received facial injuries. Another rider was thrown from the bike and received a broken wrist. And tragically, a third rider was rendered quadriplegic—paralyzed in all four limbs—by a spinal cord injury sustained after being thrown from a Trek bike.

The recalled Trek bikes were sold throughout the United States and Canada from September 1999 through April 2015 and cost between $480 and $1,560. If you own a Trek bicycle and are unsure whether your bike is included in the recall, you should visit the Trek web page dedicated to the recall. Trek has also recommended the following test: if you open the quick release lever for your front disc brakes all the way and the lever remains in contact with the disc brakes after being opened to a full 180 degree angle, the bike is not safe to ride and is a part of the recall.

All owners of recalled Trek bicycles are urged to stop using them immediately and bring them to an authorized Trek retailer for a free repair and a $20 coupon toward any Bontrager purchase.
