How are injuries at the gym classified?

Gym Injury Compensation

When it comes to making a claim for your injuries at the gym, the level of compensation that you’re awarded will depend massively on the severity of the incident. For that reason, it’s often difficult to classify gym injuries and so you should take photographic evidence of your injuries, wherever possible.

Not only will this help you to prove that you’re worthy of compensation when fighting the case in Court, but it may help the judge to understand why the injury wasn’t your fault.

 

What are the causes of gym injury claims?

Because a gym has many different types of machinery, it’s possible to experience an injury in a variety of ways. Some of the most common accidents in gyms include:

  • Broken bones due to incorrectly-used or faulty productsGym Injury Compensation
  • Incorrect guidance from a personal trainer or other member of staff
  • Being hit by a stray piece of equipment, such as a football
  • Slip and fall claims due to uneven or wet flooring

Who can claim gym injury compensation?

Anyone who has experienced an injury at the gym within the past three years is able to make a gym injury compensation claim when using our solicitors service.

If you’re looking to make a claim for a gym accident that involved a child, you can either make the claim on their behalf or wait until they turn 18 years old to make a claim themselves.

How can I start my claim for injuries at the gym?

To begin your case, we will need medical evidence of your injuries (with photographs, if possible), along with a report on how the injury happened and who you believe is to blame.

Where does the compensation come from?

Usually, your gym injury compensation will be paid by the gym’s insurance provider.

Because the legal duties of a public leisure facility can be complicated, you may struggle to find out if you’re eligible for gym injury compensation. However, we’re able to explain your rights, helping you to establish liability for your accident in gym claims.
