- Trek Bicycles Recalled in United States and Canada
More than 900,000 bicycles in the United States and another 98,000 bicycles in Canada have been recalled after three injuries to riders.
Trek Bicycle, a bicycle company, has issued the recall covering bikes from model years 1999 to 2015. The expensive bikes are manufactured in Taiwan and China. They are sold for anywhere between $480 and $1,650.
The bicycles have been recalled because of a defect in the lever located on the front wheel. The defective lever can interfere with the disc brakes and cause serious injuries.
Because the front wheel can at times detach from the bike, riders faces, necks and heads are at particular risk for severe injuries.
The bikes have been sold all over North America for more than a decade and they are located in millions of homes.
After reports of paralysis, broken wrists and facial deformities caused by Trek bikes, the company quickly issued a voluntary nationwide recall.
Own a Trek Bike?
If you own a Trek bicycle, you may be worried, and rightfully so. After all, the product has caused at least one person to be paralyzed permanently.
If you own a Trek bicycle, the company is offering free replacement coupons for consumers who bring in their bikes for inspections. The coupon is worth $20 and will cover the cost of the replacement parts necessary to ensure that the bike is fixed.
The Wisconsin-based company stated that the repairs would take less than five minutes to complete. In addition to the injured rider who became paralyzed, several other riders were injured.

Many companies talk about teamwork but few practice it. Many companies talk about an employee friendly environment but few actually provide it. At Phillips Law Group the foundation of our success is making sure we work as a team and that we work in an environment that allows everyone to thrive and be at their best every day. Our firm understands that in order for the client to have a great experience the people responsible for that client’s case must be given all the necessary tools and encouragement to make that happen. That’s the Phillips Way. As a manager of this firm in charge of several employees as well as directly affecting the client’s experience I take tremendous pride in saying we live by these premises and we work hard to build on them and make them better every day. This is an amazing place because it has amazing people working here!
Jasmine Delgado is an amazing paralegal. She was patient, kind and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommend Phillips law group
Sophia H. at Phillips Law Group has been an absolute joy to work with -quick, responsive, and professional in every interaction. Her breadth of knowledge, from administration to IT to finance, is nothing short of impressive.
Liz Gonzales was great!!!!
They knew exactly how to explain the case to me in a way that I would understand it. They gave me hope that my life wasn’t over.
I enjoy my work day here at Phillips Law Group and generally speaking I love my clients. Every day brings a new client or task to keep me on my toes. Administration keeps open communication and is hilarious most of the time! I love the way we celebrate FRIDAY, holidays and birthdays and how everything is so competitive. All in all I’m so fortunate to be here and I enjoy what I do.
Phillips law group is a great firm! Caroline is great.
My review is for Kathy Hudson a legal assistant at the law firm. She is great! She is very professional and a fair based person. She was never rude to me and always called me back. She listened to me and had my best interest as number 1. Mr Nasir who is a supervisor at law firm also was very professional and helpful. Not sure if spelling his name correctly but sorry if not. As far as mr Ross and the lady that runs the front desk reception I would say they are the most unprofessional and rude people I have met at a law firm in my life especially beings they were representing me. But Kathy made it overall a better experience. Thx Kathy.
I’ve been working at Phillips Law Group for nearly four years and I can confidently say this is the best personal injury firm in Arizona to work for. The firm is the best for numerous reasons but to start, Phillips Law Group gives employees opportunities for promotions and growth. I started working within the settlement department, moved to a paralegal assistant and grew to be a pre-litigation paralegal with my own case load. Each attorney I have worked for is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. Secondly, I love how Phillips Law shows appreciation for employees. They host Friday Zoom Huddles giving out PTO, goodie bags, special shout outs, bonuses and gift cards. They also host extravagant holiday parties and fun contests during the Holidays! Lastly, the firm cares about giving back to the community, which is a trait I value as well. It’s rewarding to see a fast paced firm taking time out of their busy day to pay it forward. I would highly recommend working at Phillips Law Group!
Phillips Law Group does so much for the community!!! I especially enjoy seeing Juan Roque out there. This gentle giant always has a smile on his face and is a part of a caring and giving team.
