    Castle Point Accident

    Have you suffered a Castle Point accident whilst at the gym?

    Although many people enjoy exercising outdoors, using the gym means that you’re able exercise in any type of weather. In addition to this, working out at the gym means that you have access to a wide range of machinery and weights to use.

    Due to this, many people have signed up to local gyms, health clubs or leisure centres. Fortunately, most of these environments offer specialist personal training so that people can learn to exercise safely and efficiently. In fact, before you’re allowed to use the machinery, most gyms and health clubs will ensure that you take a compulsory induction class so that you’re aware of how the machines operate.

    Although not all gym staff take personal training sessions, most members of staff do have sports or health and safety training and are able to raise any safety issues should they arise. If for example, a member of staff was to see you using a piece of machinery in a dangerous or inappropriate way, they may intervene in order to prevent a Castle Point accident from occurring. Similarly, if you attempted to use weights which were too heavy for you, they may advise you of appropriate training regimes in an attempt to stop you from suffering an injury or a Castle Point accident.

    Who to call for compensation advice

    However, from time to time, people may suffer from accidents or injuries when exercising. If you’re working out at a gym and you happen to suffer a Castle Point accident that wasn’t your fault, you may want to make a compensation claim for the harm that you’ve suffered.

    If it’s proven that you weren’t at fault and that the Castle Point accident was caused by someone or something else, there’s a good chance that you’ll be able to obtain compensation. If the gym itself, or a member of their staff, are deemed to be responsible, they may be forced to pay you compensation.

    However, if it was another member or customer who caused the Castle Point accident, you may need to make a claim against them in order to obtain compensation.
