    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Were you injured by faulty gym equipment?

    If you go to a gym, you wouldn’t expect to be injured by faulty gym equipment. After all, the equipment is there for you to use to help you get fitter, not to be injured. In fact, an injury of any kind could severely hamper your ability to exercise for quite some time, depending on how serious the injury is.

    Gym equipment can be enormously useful in helping individuals to develop their bodies, their muscles and their way of life. It can help people become stronger and fitter as well. If this equipment is maintained regularly and checked daily to make sure it is safe for use, there should never be any chance that someone would be injured through negligence.

    Malfunctions and mishaps

    If you can prove the equipment was not fit to use, you could claim compensation for injuries you sustained while using the equipment. For instance, there could have been bolts or nuts missing. There may have been a piece of the equipment that has sheared off through overuse. Anything like this could potentially make the equipment unsafe to use.

    It would be extremely painful to end up with trapped fingers or injuries to other parts of your body simply because someone failed to maintain the exercise equipment you are using. If the injury is serious enough, it may potentially have ongoing issues for you in terms of the way you live your life from now on.

    Assessing the chance of making a claim

    Getting proper advice from a solicitor is never a bad thing in this situation. You may find it hard to work out whether a compensation claim could be well advised in your case. No two accidents are the same, and this applies just as much with gym-based accidents as for those that occur elsewhere.
