We have all heard the phrase “no pain, no gain” – however, if gym equipment is faulty and has caused you unnecessary injury you may be entitled to compensation.
In addition to the equipment being faulty there may be other issues with the gym or sports halls which could caused accidents. Sports halls and gyms, whether they are private or council run, should be safe, however unfortunately this is not always the case and the occupier could be held in breach of their duty of care to keep you reasonably safe.
Common examples of where things can go wrong include uneven or slippery surfaces, obstacles on the floor, such as netting or other tripping hazards, and poorly maintained equipment.
If you have been injured whilst trying to keep fit it is important that you report your accident to the gym or sports hall immediately so they can fully investigate what happened. We also recommend you get medical advice from your GP or local hospital.
If you are considering making a claim make sure you get specialist advice from experts in this field. Our specialist solicitors know how to get you the compensation you deserve due to our years of experience.
We handle accidents in gyms and sports halls on a No win, No Fee basis. This means that if your claim is not successful, you will have nothing to pay. We want to reassure you that there are no financial risks in making your claim.
Remember, legal proceedings must be initiated within 3 years from the date of your accident. Failure to do this may result in your claim being time-barred and you may not be able to make a claim for compensation.
