    Can you claim if you fall whilst skipping in the gym?


    There are many excellent advantages attached to skipping in the gym or elsewhere, which is why more and more people seem to be taking up the activity all the time. Skipping can vastly improve your health and quality of life, helping you lose weight, boost your cardiovascular fitness and tone up your muscles. Even if you experience some pain when you first take up skipping, any initial micro tears will heal in the first few days, and you can expect your muscles to be in much better condition than they were before you took up skipping.

    Who caused your accident?

    Many people are skipping in the gym in between using other facilities. If you have been skipping at the gym and have had an accident, you may now be wondering whether you are permitted to claim or not. Whether you are eligible to take action can depend on a number of factors. With growing numbers of people registering for gym memberships, gyms are now incredibly busy, which means there is a bigger chance of accidents occurring.

    The people who run gyms are obliged to make sure the environment they are working in is safe and healthy. If your accident was caused by your own negligence – for instance, if you weren’t using facilities in the correct manner, you probably won’t get compensation. However, if you can prove that the accident was caused by poorly-maintained facilities, for example including uneven floors, we may well be able to help you get compensation.

    Perhaps you were given incorrect instructions by gym staff? Maybe the equipment is too close together? Wet floors without warning signs and inadequate cleaning of facilities are also good reasons for claiming and known causes of accidents. You will need to have seen a medical professional about your injury after the accident and the accident definitely needs to have been someone else’s fault.
