It’s sad but true that more of us than ever before sign up for gym membership with the best intentions each January, only to let these intentions slide come spring, when many of us cancel our memberships. But if you’re one of the few who has stuck to their resolutions and made it to the gym for a regular workout this year, well done! The last thing you expect is to be injured in an accident at the gym, but unfortunately accidents can and do happen at gyms across the UK.
Slip, trip and fall accidents are amongst the most common types of accidents to happen in public places, and gyms are no exception. The good news is that if you have slipped in a gym, you could find yourself able to make a 100% no win, no fee* personal injury claim with Accident Advice Helpline.
Common causes of gym accidents
If you have slipped in a gym, the most important question to ask yourself is, “How did my accident happen?” It might be that the gym floor was being cleaned, and no wet floor warning signs were displayed when you slipped and fell, injuring your back. Or perhaps a personal trainer or somebody else working out at the gym spilt food or drink near the workout equipment (or in the changing room) and you slipped and fell. It could even be a leaking roof that caused your accident – water from the roof could pool on the floor, and if you don’t notice it, you could slip and fall.
Don’t be one of those people who avoid making a personal injury claim because you’re simply not sure who is to blame for your accident. Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we’ll be able to tell you if you have a viable claim and offer you advice that could help you decide what to do next.
How have you been injured?
Those who have slipped in a gym could find themselves suffering from broken bones, strains and sprains or even a back or neck injury which is debilitating. You could even suffer more serious injuries such as a head or facial injury, if you hit your head as you fall. No matter how you have been injured, you could still be eligible to make a personal injury claim if somebody else is at fault for your accident. So give Accident Advice Helpline a call today on 0800 689 0500 and find out whether you could make a claim. It’s free to call us for confidential, no-obligation advice from our team of expert advisors.
