    Why maintenance on gym equipment is essential


    Gym owners, like the owners of other establishments frequented by the public, have a duty of care to protect their employees and customers against accidental injuries. This includes proper, regular maintenance on gym equipment. Here is why maintenance on gym equipment is essential.

    The importance of maintenance on gym equipment

    Regularly checking and keeping gym equipment in good, safe working order is important. Faulty or damaged equipment could cause potentially serious gym accidents. Equipment-related injuries at the gym can range from minor cuts, bruises or muscle strains and tears to broken limbs or even long-term head, neck or spinal injuries. Defective electrical gym equipment (like treadmills, for instance) could also cause injuries by electrocution, fires or explosions.

    Injured by gym equipment

    If you were injured by faulty gym equipment, you have a good chance of making a successful gym injury claim. As is the case with other personal injury claims, any claim for gym accident compensation must be initiated within three years from the date the accident happened.

    Accident Advice Helpline

    Our in-house solicitors have over 16 years of experience in handling gym-related injury claims. Boasting an impressive success record, we can conduct most claims almost entirely over the phone. Although this cannot be guaranteed, we often manage to bring claims to satisfactory settlements out of court.

    What to expect

    Operating exclusively under conditional fee agreements (better known as no-win, no-fee claims), our legal team will support you throughout the claim process. We strive to achieve the best possible outcome for you in the shortest possible time. We can, however, not provide an exact prediction of:

    • How long it will take to conclude your claim
    • How much you will ultimately receive

    Any information concerning time scale and/or possible compensation amounts we provide can only be a rough estimation. Cases and their surrounding circumstances/situations can vary significantly. We should also mention at this point that you may be required to undergo an additional, independent medical assessment before a settlement can be reached.

    Call us

    If you believe you may have the right to claim following an accident at the gym, have an obligation-free, confidential chat with an advisor on our 24-hour helpline today to confirm your eligibility to claim and get one of our gym injury experts assigned to your case. The freephone number for calls from UK landlines is 0800 689 0500. You can also call us from your mobile phone, in which case you should dial 0333 500 0993.
