HARTFORD, Conn., April 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, announced today that a $750,000 settlement was recently reached for a woman who injured her hip and wrist after a personal trainer instructed her to use exercise equipment the wrong way. According to the Connecticut Law Tribune, the woman plaintiff involved, Susan "Suzie" Butler, hired a personal trainer and was told to use the Bosu Ball in the wrong way (Susan Butler v. John Saville and Planet Fitness Holdings LLC). The Bosu Ball is an exercise training device that consists of an inflated ball attached to a flat platform, and she was instructed to stand on the platform side, even though the instructions said doing so could potentially cause serious injuries. After she was catapulted into the air, she landed on her right hip and wrist, and later went to doctors who discovered fractures in her hip and wrist and then resulted in surgeries.
