Mattress Firm pays nearly $5 million in Bed Tech lawsuit

According to legal news website Top Class Action, Mattress Firm has agreed to pay $4.9 million to resolve a class action lawsuit in which they claimed that Bed Tech bed frames are defective and dangerous.

“Plaintiffs in the Mattress Firm class action lawsuit claim that Bed Tech bed frames are prone to collapse — leading to serious injury or even death. Manufacturer Global Home Imports recalled the products in March 2021 after 100 reports of frames collapsing,” Top Class Actions said.

They also say Mattress Firm and Global Home Imports haven’t admitted any wrongdoing but will still pay the $4.9 million class action settlement.

The settlement affects customers who bought the HR Platform bed frame sold under the Bed Tech brand name with model numbers HR33, HR33XL, HR46, HR50, HR60 or HR66 between April 8, 2015, and April 8, 2021.

“Under the terms of the Mattress Firm class action lawsuit settlement, class members can receive either a cash payment or a gift card.  Cash refunds are available to consumers with proof of purchase who return their bed frame to a Mattress Firm store within two years. Refunds will range from $73.98 for twin XL frames to $115.68 for California king frames,” Top Class Actions writes.
