When you’re working up a sweat at the gym, the condition of the fitness equipment you’re using is normally the last thing on your mind – but perhaps it should be something we all pay more attention to. Faulty gym equipment injuries are unfortunately not all that uncommon, and if you’ve been injured by faulty equipment at your fitness club, we’re here to help you get the compensation you’re entitled to. Since 2000, we have helped hundreds of customers claim compensation and we are proud to be endorsed by our patron, UK consumer champion Esther Rantzen.
You’d be forgiven for thinking the gym is a safe place and that the only risk of injury is a sports injury caused by failing to warm up and stretch your muscles. Whilst to some degree that’s true, the equipment you’re using during your workout may not be as safe as you think it is. Equipment needs to be regularly checked, cleaned and maintained and risk assessments should be carried out, to reduce the risk of accidents occurring. If you’ve been affected by faulty gym equipment injuries, our expert advisors can offer confidential, no-obligation advice which could help you decide whether to make a claim for personal injury compensation today.
Healing from your injuries
Injuries caused by faulty gym equipment could range from minor to severe, and chances are you’ll probably need at least a few days off work to recover from your injuries. If you’ve sustained serious injuries, you might need ongoing treatment, which could be expensive, or find you’re unable to return to work, which can impact your family financially. You may suffer from ongoing pain which could affect your quality of life. We believe you’re entitled to compensation if somebody else’s negligence has caused your injuries, and we’re here to make sure that happen. Why not take the 30-second test on our website right now, to find out if you’re eligible to make a claim?
Simple and stress-free
The aftermath of an accident can be a stressful time for you and your family, physically, emotionally and financially. That’s why claiming compensation shouldn’t be difficult. We aim to make the process simple and stress-free, so whether you’ve suffered head injuries after an accident at a fitness club or broken bones after equipment failure at your local gym, get in touch to find out if you’re eligible to make a claim.
