If you have been injured at a gym or spa then you should be able to make claims in Wakefield against the management or staff of the gym as long as you can prove that they were at fault for the accident that you have had. You can only make a successful claim for an accident which you have had if there is evidence that another person was at fault for what happened, so here are some examples of accidents which can occur within a gym or spa and which you can actually make a claim for.
Slips, trips and falls
Slips, trips and falls are some of the most common types of accidents that people claim for in public places and this is because generally there is someone to blame if you are in a place which is managed by a person or company. A wet floor, which doesn’t have a sign, or has not been properly mopped up, is a good reason to make a claim for injuries sustained from a slip, trip or fall. You can also claim for slips, trips and falls that have occurred because there has been clutter left around, or floor surfaces are broken or uneven.
Badly maintained equipment
You should be able to make a claim for equipment that is old or badly maintained, If it has caused you an injury. This would be the case if, for example, you were using a piece of machinery which had something loose or simply did not work properly, meaning that even if you are using it properly you became injured through no fault of your own.
Not being given an induction
Every gym or spa has to show customers around and teach them how to use everything, what is out-of-bounds and what needs to be used only under the instruction of a trainer. If you are not given an induction and are injured then this is the fault of the gym or spa and not your own fault.
