    How to claim if personal trainers fail their duty of care


    If personal trainers fail their duty of care and you have suffered an injury as a result, you might be thinking about claiming compensation for your loss. At Accident Advice Helpline, we can assist you with your personal injury claim.

    The risk of getting injured in a gym is heightened by the number of people who wear earphones while they work out. A gym is a hotbed for injuries, as a result of all the equipment and the lack of training that people have when using them. Many gym users work with personal trainers for better results; when these fail their duty of care, you may be liable to claim.

    If personal trainers fail their duty of care, are you due compensation?

    Personal trainers take on the responsibility of looking after you when you hire them for a workout session. Should they fail in their capacity as your caretaker, you can claim for compensation. Getting injured at a gym would usually suggest negligence on a gym’s part or that of a personal trainer.

    A personal trainer should ask all clients about their medical history. This should include previous and current injuries and illnesses. If you have been injured because of participating in a workout session which is not suitable to your current needs, you may be eligible to make a personal injury claim.

    Serious injuries like facial injuries and broken ribs can be caused by poor management of gym equipment or if personal trainers fail their duty of care. By being seriously injured, it may force you to take time off work and this will add towards your compensation. If this has happened to you, take our 30-second test today.
