    How to claim gym accident compensation


    There’s a reason why gyms offer you an induction – it’s to show new members how to use the equipment safely and make them aware of any hazards, as well as providing them with a tour of the premises. Skip your induction and ignore safety warnings and you could find yourself seriously injured – keeping fit can come at a price if you don’t pay attention to health and safety!

    But how about if you’ve been injured through no fault of your own, perhaps because of faulty gym equipment or an unqualified personal trainer? It may be possible to claim gym accident compensation, depending on what has happened and how you have been injured, and that’s where Accident Advice Helpline’s team of professional personal injury lawyers can help you.

    Common gym accidents and injuries

    Have you torn tendons on the treadmill, cut yourself on the cross trainer or received an electric shock on the elliptical machine? When you sign up for gym membership, you naturally expect the equipment you’re using to be safe and well-maintained, and you put your trust in the gym to ensure that this happens. Sadly, faulty equipment is a leading cause of accidents in gyms, and if you have suffered crushed fingers after weights have collapsed or torn a ligament in your knee due to a faulty fitness machine, you may be left in pain and suffering long-lasting damage.

    Treadmills which won’t slow down, collapsing weight stacks and unhygienic swimming pools are just a few of the hazards that await you at a gym with a negligent owner, and if you’ve been injured, you could claim gym accident compensation.

    Who pays my claim if it’s successful?

    Your claim will be against the owner of the gym itself – but with Accident Advice Helpline representing you, we will support you every step of the way and it’s unlikely you’ll need to go to court, provided the gym accepts liability for your injuries. We liaise with medical staff to assess the extent of your injuries and use this information as well as a range of other factors to work out your settlement.
