Accident Advice Helpline is the personal injury lawyer Northolt residents use from time to time for a whole different range of injuries they sustain, in lots of different circumstances, including getting injured in the gym. Of course in order to be able to claim compensation for any such injury, you must first prove that the blame lies with a third party. With injuries you’ve sustained in a gym, that effectively means it’s the owners of the gym who will be liable if you’re injured on a piece of faulty equipment, or through the fault of one of their members of staff.
Any gym should have public liability insurance
If you do have cause to sue the gym you attend, it’s not actually the gym that will end up paying. It will be their insurance company, because any establishment that welcomes in members of the public, has to have public liability insurance. So there’s no need to feel awkward about suing – not that you should anyway; for as Esther Rantzen, the well known TV star and famous people’s consumer champion says, “The law states that if you’ve been hurt, and someone else is to blame, you should be compensated.”
The personal injury lawyer Northolt residents have access to, who are ready and waiting
The owners of the Northolt Leisure Centre are actually investing in new gym equipment. They understand the risk of trying to maintain old equipment that could malfunction and cause injury, in the full knowledge that if it does, Accident Advice Helpline would be standing by to help with the raising and processing of any personal injury claim.
Compensation claim qualifying conditions
Before you can consider raising a claim for compensation, you must first ensure that certain aspects of the injury fall within the terms that would qualify such a claim.
- The blame for the injury, must lie with someone other than the injury victim themselves.
- The nature of the injury must justify raising a claim. For example minor sprains, cuts and/or bruises would not qualify, but serious muscle tears and broken limbs almost certainly would.
- The injury must have taken place within the three years immediately preceding the date you raise your claim for compensation.
- Medical proof of the injury will be required.
