Accidents in a gym
It is estimated that four and a half million adults in Britain are members of gyms or leisure centres. These places are great to relax, work out and meet new people in, and there are stringent health and safety regulations covering them so that the public are as safe as possible. However for whatever reason, accidents in gyms do occur. The owner of a gym has the responsibility for the health and safety of all guests, members and visitors on the site and for that of the people who work there.
There are several types of accidents which can occur in a gym, and among them are the following:
- Defective equipment or equipment that has not been well-maintained, for example a treadmill or rowing machine
- A trip or slip on wet or uneven flooring
- Incorrect advice from a personal trainer
- Inadequate training about how to use the equipment safely
- An injury after being hit by a stray object
Compensation may cover the pain, distress and suffering caused to you by your injury and loss of earnings if you are absent from work. It will also take into consideration the effect the injury has had on your daily life and if you have suffered a spinal injury or brain damage, then future medical costs as well as past ones will be factored in to the amount of compensation you are awarded. It should also provide for care expenses, either by a member of the family or by a healthcare professional.
