    Who is liable for a gym accident?


    Injuries happen all the time at a gym. Who is liable for a gym accident will decide whether or not you can make a compensation claim. As long as your injury was not your fault, the legal experts at Accident Advice Helpline can help you.

    Being injured while at the gym

    When you first go to a gym, you are invited for an induction. This will help tailor your training based on your health. If you fail to disclose a medical condition, you could be injured and this would be your own fault. The gym can only provide you with training based on the information you provide.

    If you strain a muscle because you over did your exercise, that injury would also be your responsibility. The gym could be liable if they did not provide you with adequate training.

    If you are injured because the equipment you used was faulty, you could make a claim as it would be the gym who is liable for a gym accident. They have a duty to check and maintain all equipment so that it is working correctly. You should also be shown the correct way to use all equipment and any safety shut-offs they may have.

    The locker rooms can be slippery if they lead to the showers. The changing area as a whole should have a non-slip surface to prevent anyone slipping. If the floor is slippery, you may be able to make a compensation claim.
