A man is suing over allegations a broken gym machine caused injury.

Ninos Shammas filed a lawsuit Feb. 11 in the Cook County Circuit Court against Technogym S.P.A., also known as Technogym USA Corp., and Life Time Fitness Inc., citing product liability.

According to the complaint, Shammas was using a shoulder press machine made by Technogym at Life Time Fitness on Feb. 13, 2013, when a cable broke, causing him injury.

He claims Technogym created a dangerous or defective machine and Life Time Fitness was negligent in allowing the product to remain in an unsafe condition.

Shammas is seeking more than $50,000 in damages and is being represented in the case by Robert A. Langendorf P.C.
