You know how important it is to stay fit, healthy and active and meeting the government guidelines for physical activity can sometimes be a challenge. Joining the gym gives us motivation to keep fit – we’re surrounded by other people exercising and have a range of equipment to choose from. But when you go to your local gym, you’re trusting those in charge to ensure that equipment is well-maintained and safe to use, and that the gym environment is safe. Faulty equipment could easily lead to serious injuries at the gym, and you could be left suffering if you are unlucky enough to be injured.
Get in touch with us to find out how we can help you claim compensation for serious injuries at the gym. Since 2000, we have been helping customers claim compensation, and we specialise in personal injury claims. What’s more, our personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis, so you can afford our services no matter what your circumstances.
Injured at the gym?
You might be wondering exactly how you could be injured at the gym and here are a few examples of the types of accident which could occur:
- Crush injuries or broken bones caused by objects (such as weights) falling on you
- Facial or eye injuries from flying debris or broken parts
- Cuts and lacerations from faulty equipment
- Injured fingers, hand, feet or legs after being crushed in equipment
These are just a few examples of the types of accident which could occur, and if you’ve been injured at the gym you are probably wondering who is to blame. You can get confidential, no-obligation advice from our expert personal injury advisors, and work out if gym staff have been negligent.
Going back to work
If you’ve been seriously injured, you might need time off work to recover from your injuries – for example if you’ve suffered a head or facial injury. In some cases, you may even find you’re not able to return to your role, or you might need to cut back the hours you work. This could affect you financially, but Accident Advice Helpline can help you claim compensation which will cover your financial losses, pain and suffering. Get in touch today by calling our freephone helpline on 0800 689 0500 and we’ll be able to tell you if you’re eligible to claim, and how much compensation you could be entitled to.
