    "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

    Accident Solicitor in Poole

    Do you need to make a claim with an accident solicitor in Poole after being hurt at the gym?

    When people first start using a gym, they are required to attend induction sessions so that they know how to use the equipment correctly. Misuse of equipment can often lead to injuries so it’s important that you take proper instruction from a certified member of staff. However, injuries can also be caused in other ways and, in some cases, you could obtain compensation for any harm you’ve suffered but you may require help from an accident solicitor in Poole.

    If you regularly attend a gym or leisure centre, it’s important that you don’t do too much too quickly or ‘over train’. This can often cause people to get injured or become unwell. If you’re embarking upon a new fitness regime, you may want to consult your doctor or a personal trainer to make sure that you’re working out safely.

    However, in some cases, gym owners or members of staff could be responsible for any injuries which occur on the premises. If they allow members to use old or damaged machinery, for example, they could be held liable for any injuries which are sustained.

    Similarly, if the venue isn’t fit for purpose, or if they allow too many people to enter the premises at once and someone is hurt, they could face legal action.

    If you’ve been hurt whilst at the gym and the incident wasn’t your fault, it’s possible that an accident solicitor in Poole will be able to help you to make a compensation claim. Of course, you will need to have received medical treatment in order to proceed with your claim.

    Fortunately, many staff members at gyms do have first aid training so it’s likely that you will be able to access immediate help. However, you will need to have been seen by medical professional and received some kind of medical treatment in order to successfully obtain compensation.
