Local residents sometimes search for solicitors in Leek Wootton when they’re looking for someone to help them to claim compensation for injuries they’ve picked up while training or keeping fit. Of course the blame for the injury has to be attributable to someone other than the injury victim his/herself; perhaps either a gymnasium, or fitness centre, or a personal trainer.
Exercise machines frequently cause injury
In terms of fitness centres, and these include facilities in sports clubs, and hotels etc. it’s often the fitness machines that cause injury. It can happen when a machine either malfunctions, or perhaps hasn’t been properly serviced or maintained. Chains can snap, pulleys and pull cords get broken, saddles collapse, etc; there are any number of things that can get damaged. If the damage isn’t spotted or picked up in a regular maintenance check, something can break while you’re exercising and easily cause injury.
As solicitors in Leek Wootton will tell you – people cause injury too
Trainers and fitness coaches cause injury too, which is why they should all be covered by public liability insurance if they’re going to be taking classes; whether it’s a bulk class, or one-on-one training. If a trainer incorrectly assesses your ability or fitness level and over-trains you in a way that causes serious injury, you’ve every right to claim compensation via the solicitors in Leek Wootton or someone else like AAH.
No proper induction training – if it causes an injury you could sue
Likewise, if a trainer doesn’t teach you the correct way to use a particular type of exercise machine and you then get seriously injured; once again, you can sue for compensation. It’s why nearly all gyms and fitness centres these days put you through an induction course whereby they show you how to use the machines properly.
