Perez v. 24 Hour Fitness

Perez v. 24 Hour Fitness

Man Awarded $1.88 Million for Neck Injury Sustained at Gym

Abraham Perez had been working out his entire life. When he lifted 225 pounds on defendant's incline bench press, the backrest of the bench broke, causing his neck to hyperflex. The defendant gym contended that it inspected the bench every day. Due to this inspection, they claimed they did nothing wrong.

Biren Law Group proved at trial that the inspections were superficial and that the integrity of the wood component of the bench had never been analyzed in the decade that the bench had been in use. Mr. Perez who underwent a 3 level cervical fusion was awarded $1.88 million by a Riverside jury.
