Woman Sues Walmart Claiming Defective Adult Tricycle Caused Her to Crash

A Branson woman is suing Walmart after she says an adult tricycle she bought from the store was defective and caused her to crash and suffer a traumatic brain injury.

The lawsuit was filed in November in Taney County and transferred to federal court on Dec. 29. The defendants are Walmart and Kent International, the company that manufactured the tricycle.

According to the lawsuit, a woman purchased the tricycle for $149 in December 2015 from the Walmart on Branson Hills Parkway.

The tricycle came partially assembled, and the woman had a Walmart employee finish the assembly since Walmart offered “free in-store bike assembly,” according to the lawsuit.

Four months later — on April 4, 2016 — the woman finally got a nice, warm day to try out the tricycle.
