    How to claim treadmill injury compensation


    The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) confirms that 3,500 people a year are injured while using treadmills. Around 1,500 of these accidents occur in gyms. Many of these accidents are entirely preventable, but when they do occur they can lead to some nasty injuries.

    Negligence is not always the cause of injuries, of course. In some cases people might set the speed too high, to a level they cannot physically keep up with. This may potentially cause them to fall. Similarly, it is very easy to lose concentration while using a treadmill. Since the belt carries on moving regardless, it can be easier than you might think to slip or lose your footing.

    What about incidents where negligence is to blame?

    There are occasions when accidents in the gym could potentially be down to negligence. For example, the treadmills should be maintained often so any problems can be easily and quickly identified before people are hurt using them.

    In addition, proper training should be provided and instruction should be given to those who are using a treadmill for the first time. If this instruction is not of a high standard, or the trainer allows someone to use a treadmill without supervision, this could be construed as negligence if something goes wrong.

    Clearly, proving negligence is very important if you are to launch a treadmill injury compensation claim. It doesn’t matter how serious your injuries are, or if they are merely bumps and cuts. In every case, proof of negligence can help support your right to make a treadmill injury compensation claim.
