For many people the gym is a great place to escape for an hour or two, allowing them to get away from the stresses of day to day life and focus on their fitness goals. However, even in a place you may visit regularly, it is easy to forget how dangerous the gym environment can be.
Most modern gyms have strict safety procedures, and offer an intensive induction scheme, putting their members health and safety as a top priority at all times. Unfortunately, there are some gyms and leisure clubs that do not have the same high standards, and actually put their customers at risk of personal injury.
Specialist Gym Accident Compensation Claim Solicitors
If a gym or leisure club fails to take the time to explain to you how to use equipment properly, or fails to maintain gym equipment, there is a good chance that an accident could occur. If this happens the gym will very likely be at fault for failing in their duty of care, and you will be able to make a claim for personal injury compensation.
From Defective Equipment to Slip and Trip Claims
Other common accidents that can occur in gyms or leisure centres are slips and falls on wet and uneven surfaces that have been left without a warning in place. It is the gyms responsibility to warn members of any potential dangers. If they fail to do so and you are hurt, you will very likely be able to make a claim.
