When you join a gym to keep fit, you can expect the odd injury. If you’re injury was caused by someone else, you could make a compensation claim. Accident Advice Helpline know all about claiming for injuries you could sustain from a gym accident.
How you could be injured at the gym
A common injury is a muscle strain, often caused because you have tried to do too much. A proper warm up can help prevent this, and the gym can often give you advice about the best way to prepare for a workout.
If you use weights, these should always be stacked safely so that they cannot fall or injure anyone. If they are not secure and they fall, the result could be a nasty injury for someone. Any mechanical equipment has the potential to cause an accident, and it should always be checked and maintained. If it fails, you could suffer an injury ranging from a strain to a broken bone.
One of the other injuries you could sustain from a gym accident could be bruises, broken bones or even a head injury, if you slip on a wet floor. Most showers and changing rooms are equipped with a non-slip surface, but if this has worn, accidents can happen.
