How do gym injuries and gym accidents happen? 

A recent survey by a large insurance company found that 41% of gym-goers had injured themselves whilst working out at some point, with 5% of people surveyed saying that they had never been shown how to use gym equipment properly. 
Common mistakes or negligent behaviour which can lead to injury in gyms and sports facilities include: 
Faulty equipment breaking or working improperly 
Equipment being incorrectly set up for the purpose 
Staff providing insufficient, or incorrect, advice on how to use the equipment or facilities 
Staff providing insufficient, or incorrect, advice on techniques eg. Weightlifting or exercise movements 
Failure to tidy away equipment or leaving items in the vicinity of other activities, causing trip and slip hazards 
Failure to clean up floor spillages 
Being hit by falling items that have been incorrectly stored or packed away 
Dangerous/sharp edges on equipment or dividing partitions 
Inadequate instruction or safety features in relaxation areas such as  saunas 
If you have been involved in an incident described above, or in any other type of incident where you have sustained an injury in a gym or sports facility, get in touch with MG Legal’s team of specialist personal injury solicitors for a no-nonsense discussion about the potential for you to make a claim for personal injury, on a no win no fee basis. 

Common gym accidents and gym injuries:

Common injuries can include: 
Head injuries from falling items or equipment 
• Wrist injuries from falls and also from improperly used or assembled equipment 
• Facial and dental injuries 
Foot injuries, both crush injuries and muscular strains

What if I have signed a waiver, preventing me bringing a gym accident claim for personal injury? 

Some gym memberships contain waivers, hidden away in the small print, protecting the gym in the event that you suffer a personal injury whilst on the premises, or using the gym equipment made available to you.  
As trusted expert personal injury solicitor’s MG Legal’s team can still advise you on making a claim for personal injury against the gym, as the practice of adding such waivers has been deemed unfair, and unenforceable in the county court. As with entering any premises, the gym owner has a legal duty to keep you safe, and a major part of running a gym includes putting reasonable safety measures in place to prevent accidents happening. 
If you feel your accident was caused by negligence, faulty equipment or inadequate training, contact a specialist personal injury solicitor at MG Legal to determine whether you have a strong accident case. Most gyms will have liability insurance, and the compensation will be handled by the insurance company and not the gym itself. 

How long have I got to make a claim? 

Subject to the Limitation Act 1980, if you have been injured as a result of an incident in a gym or sports facility you have three years to pursue a claim for personal injury. There are exceptions, for those under 18 years old at time of the injury, in that minors have three years from their 18th birthday within which to make a personal injury claim.  
Time limits may differ if you are acting on behalf of someone with limited mental capacity, if you are acting as guardian or subject a lasting power of attorney. If you have any questions or queries, then please do not hesitate to contact one of MG Legal’s personal injury experts, here…

How much is my gym accident personal injury claim worth? 

With all personal injury claims, it is impossible to accurately estimate how much the claim will be worth in total straight away. This amount will depend on a number of different factors, including what injuries you have sustained from your gym accident, and how severe they are. 
There are also a number of different values involved in the financial compensation claim, on top of the injuries themselves. See a full overview of these, here.
