Whether you’re a muscled gym pro, dedicated fitness fanatic or take a more casual approach to exercise, joining a gym is one of the best ways to get fit and stick to an exercise regime. We all know how important it is to stay active and as anyone who regularly works out knows, warming up and stretching before you start your workout helps to prevent injuries. But what about other injuries at the gym? What if you’ve been injured by faulty equipment?
You’ll usually undergo an induction when you join the gym, where a personal trainer or member of staff will show you around and teach you how to use the equipment. But if you’ve used the equipment in the correct way and it has left you injured, what can you do about it? We could help you claim personal injury compensation if you’ve suffered injuries at the gym through no fault of your own.
Three-year time limit
What sort of accidents could occur, you might be wondering? Imagine a resistance band snaps and hits you in the face; it could cause an eye injury. Or perhaps a faulty treadmill could throw you off, or a weight stack could collapse on you, causing crush injuries. If you’re anything like most of us, you probably don’t stop to think about how safe the machines and equipment you’re using actually are – you just take it for granted that those responsible for the gym will check and ensure that equipment is safe to use. When things go wrong, get in touch with us and we could get you the compensation you deserve. There’s a three-year time limit to make a claim and our team of professional personal injury advisors are here to offer confidential advice and answer any questions you have. With no obligation to proceed and a 100% no win, no fee* service, what have you got to lose?
