Visiting the gym should be fun and often hard work, depending on how energetic you wish to be. The main thing is it should always be safe and your personal safety should not be put at risk due to the negligence of the gym staff.
All gymnasiums and leisure centres have a duty of care for their visitors and should ensure all necessary steps are taken so that the visitors can enjoy their time and leave without sustaining an injury due to an accident resulting from staff negligence.
We have helped many people claim the injury compensation they are entitled to following an accident in the gym.
Any gym accident should be reported to the staff at the time and details of the cause of the accident and injury should be logged in the gym accident book. It is vitally important that the details logged are an exact account of events, any witness details should also be logged.
The injury sustained will need to be recorded on medical records in order to make a claim for compensation, therefore a visit to the doctor or hospital will be necessary.

An accident at a fitness club could happen due to a number of reasons, however, we find the main reasons we are contacted are due to slips, trips and falls in the gym or fitness club.
When you visit a fitness club, you go expecting to enjoy a workout or use the other facilities without the risk of being injured due to the fitness clubs negligence.
A Fitness Club accident happened when a female was enjoying workout in the gym and she noticed mats were placed so closely to the apparatus that they caused a tripping hazard to people in the gym. She asked a member of staff to move the mats, which they did and the lady carried on with her exercises. She went to use another piece of apparatus and tripped on the mats as they had been moved to another position equally as dangerous. She did not see the mats and the fall caused severe injuries to her arm and shoulder.
The accident was recorded in the fitness clubs accident book and on a visit to hospital she was told an operation is necessary. As the injury was severe and awkward to mend, a further operation was necessary. This was then followed by months of physiotherapy.
A successful accident in a fitness club claim for injury compensation was made on a no win no fee basis, with maximum compensation being paid to the lady.
An accident in a gym could due to a number of reasons, and many are caused by the negligence of gym staff.
When attending the gym, it should be enjoyable and your safety should not be in danger due to staffing errors or equipment defects.
One accident in a gym happened as staff members failed to correctly put away matting which was left in a dangerous place. This caused the gym member to fall over them as they were not seen, resulting in a severely broken arm. The accident was recorded in the accident book and witnessed. An accident in a gym compensation claim was made, and won, awarding the injured gym member compensation for the injuries.
Gym accidents can also happen when playing football. A case our injury solicitors won involved a child who was enjoying an indoor six a side match when the goal fell onto him as it was not secured. The other goal was secured to the wall and floor, the gym staff should have ensured the safety of the players and equipment before the game started.

You could claim gym accident compensation if you have been injured whilst on a visit to your local gym or leisure centre, providing the accident was not your own fault. Many gym accidents cause a ligament or tendon injury or fractures.
There was a case recently where a member of the gym was having a workout and noticed that some mats had been positioned in a dangerous place. The member asked for the mats to be moved to a safe location before anyone fell over them. The gym staff moved the mats to another area. However even though they were moved, they were put in another dangerous position. Unfortunately the person who asked for the gym mats to be moved, to try and prevent an accident, later had an accident at the gym and tripped over the mats which she did not see. This resulted in a major shoulder injury, needing a couple of operations and preventing the person from driving for several months. The daily tasks which were usually easy became very difficult and much help was needed from friends who were local. At the time of the gym accident the incident was recorded in the gym accident book. Since the accident the person has not been able to return to the gym and feels they are missing out on something they enjoy doing. They made a gym injury compensation claim.
