Aerobics is a well-known pastime for many. Some will attend classes to learn more about this type of exercise, while others will try out using a DVD at home. There is a lot to be said for going to classes though, as this can be a very good way of learning the proper way to do things. After all, if you get something wrong you could end up hurting yourself and causing an injury you could easily have avoided.
While most gym classes such as aerobics are enjoyable and safe to attend, there can potentially be problems that might crop up now and again. While the majority of instructors are properly trained and qualified to do the job they are employed to do, there can occasionally be lapses in training. If this should happen, you may find there is an increased risk of injury, purely because the individual does not know how to instruct people.
Slippery floors and trip hazards
Regardless of the class you take, it is reasonable enough to assume the premises the class is taking place in are good to be used. They should be checked regularly according to the health and safety laws, to ensure there are no hazards or potential problems that could lead to an injury, either for a client or for staff.
If you know you were hurt while attending an aerobics class because of something that was someone else’s fault, you may have a good chance to claim aerobics injury compensation. It is always wise to get proper advice on this if you have been injured, since you must have proof of negligence in order for a claim to be considered.
Could you claim for injuries received in an aerobics class?
Perhaps your injuries took place while you were on your way to the class, when you were already inside the building. On the other hand you may have been injured during the class itself, if the instructor gave poor or incorrect advice or for some other reason.
Whatever your situation is, you should definitely contact Accident Advice Helpline for advice. We provide no-obligation advice if you call 0800 689 0500. Make sure you don’t miss out on a potential opportunity to claim aerobics injury compensation if you have been to a class in the last three years and you were injured at the time.
