    A negligent personal trainer caused my personal injury


    A negligent personal trainer caused my personal injury

    Love it or hate it, going to the gym is great for your body and mind. Did you know that over seven million people in the UK are members of a gym or fitness club, and many of these people rely on personal trainers to keep them motivated? In order to qualify as a personal trainer, intense training and knowledge of health, fitness and nutrition is required, and most personal trainers have a loyal following of clients. However, as with anything, the standard of service provided by personal trainers can vary, and if you have suffered an injury due to a negligent personal trainer, you may be wondering if you’re eligible to claim compensation. But what sort of injuries could a negligent personal trainer actually cause? Here are a few examples:

    • Injuries caused by failing to show clients how to use equipment properly – this could lead to sprains, strains and long-term injuries
    • Faulty equipment causing injuries
    • Spotting injuries leading to orthopaedic or other injuries
    • Actions taken by under-qualified or unqualified personal trainers, such as failing to check medical history
    • Negligence by the gym in the hiring or supervision of personal trainers

    Depending on where you train, you may be claiming against the personal trainer themselves or against the gym which hired them.

    Claiming compensation for injuries caused by a personal trainer

    Whether you have been injured at a gym or whilst working out with a private personal trainer, you could claim compensation if they have been negligent. For example, if they failed to check your medical history before creating a training plan, this could cause injury and illness, even death in serious cases. If you or someone you love has been affected by a negligent personal trainer’s actions, there is usually a three-year time limit in place to make a claim for personal injury compensation. However, it’s best to claim as soon as possible after your injury has occurred.
