Have you been hurt at a leisure facility or resort?
With numerous spa resorts and leisure facilities located all over the United Kingdom, many people use them on a daily basis as well as for more luxurious weekend breaks. As many resorts have a wide range of facilities, you may use them to get fit and undertake exercise or you may opt for a more relaxing break.
With numerous sporting activities and varied gym equipment available at most resorts, it’s not surprising that accidents and injuries can occur from time to time. Although guests are normally permitted to use all the equipment, it’s important to ensure that you receive proper instruction in order to minimise the risk of injury.
If the gym or resort fail to provide the appropriate instruction or they fail to maintain their equipment and you’re hurt as a result, you may find that you’re able to make a claim for compensation.
Can I make a claim with an injury solicitor in Leek?
Providing you can show that the injuries you experienced weren’t your fault and that they were caused by someone or something else, it’s likely that an injury solicitor in Leek will be able to assist you in making a claim.
If the gym or resort were responsible for your injuries, it could be relatively easy for a personal injury solicitor in Leek to prove they were responsible so you could receive your compensation more quickly than you imagine.
How much compensation could I obtain?
Normally, the amount of compensation you could obtain will depend on the type of injuries you experienced and how serious your injuries were. However, other factors are taken into account as well. If, for example, your injuries will prevent you from working, you could receive additional compensation to reflect this. Similarly, if you have suffered emotionally because of your injuries, your compensation award may be increased accordingly.
