Your sporting injury
As with all sports, sometimes injuries are inevitable and are often down to bad luck. However, in some cases accidents are caused by negligence of others. This can be the result of such things as poor supervision, faulty equipment or poorly maintained venues. If your accident was down to any of the above then other gymnasts, spectators or staff nearby should be able to vouch for what happened to you. You should make sure to take their details as you may need witness statements from them during the course of your claim.
Safety in gymnastics
Although a great way to tone up, gymnastics presents a very real risk of injury. This kind of sport demands a lot of the body and if used incorrectly, equipment such as the bar can do a lot of damage.
Before you take part in gymnastics, make sure that if you are training with a company or a coach, they are fully qualified. Your coach or instructor should supervise you at all times, as well as other gymnasts practising around you, to avoid any form of collision or accident. You should always practise within a safe environment, with high impact floors covered by thick landing mats and foam. All flooring should be secured to avoid slips and equipment should be spaced well apart to avoid collisions with other equipment, gymnasts and spectators.
You should not start practising on a whim. The sport of gymnastics is a demanding and highly athletic sport, which requires strong muscle, good nutrition and a lot of dedication. Make sure that you warm up at the beginning of each session, never attempt anything above your skill level too soon, proceed with caution on new equipment and wear the correct clothing, wrist straps and footwear to keep yourself safe.
