Press release from: Kane Russell Coleman & Logan PC

On November 2, 2009, Michael Logan and Brian Stork of KRCL obtained a defense verdict for a national fitness equipment manufacturer/distributor. The eleven day jury trial in Dallas County State Court resulted in a verdict in excess of $2. 1 million against the two co-defendants (the gym and the personal trainer). The Plaintiff alleged that the product was defectively marketed based on a failure to warn of the dangers associated with use of the product, and that the gym and personal trainer were negligent in the use of the product. Prior to trial, KRCL obtained summary judgment on the Plaintiff's manufacturing and design defect claims. At trial, the Plaintiff requested damages of $5.0 million. The jury found that the product was not defective or unreasonably dangerous, and returned a take-nothing verdict in favor of the manufacturer.

KRCL regularly defends product liability cases in a variety of industries, including the fitness industry.
