Gym Negligence Cases - Closeup image of a fitness equipmentGym negligence cases can result when people sustain injuries at a gym. If you recently got hurt while exercising at a gym, you may be entitled to compensation. It’s important to speak with a personal injury lawyer about your case promptly.

Common Types of Gym Negligence

When people walk into a gym, they expect to get in a good workout and leave. They probably do not expect to get hurt. Unfortunately, however, accidents can even happen in gyms and are often due to negligence. Here are the most common types of gym negligence.

  • Poorly maintained exercise equipment. Gyms are filled with various exercise equipment, including treadmills, stationary bikes and weight racks, that can help get you into great shape. However, if the equipment is broken or defective in some way, it can cause serious injuries. Gyms are responsible for regularly maintaining their equipment and ordering the necessary repairs. If they fail to do this and someone gets hurt, they may be held liable.
  • Slip and fall accidents. People can suffer slip and fall accidents just about anywhere, including gyms. Common causes of slip and fall accidents in gyms include liquid spills, wet floors, exposed electrical cord and gym equipment on the ground. 
  • Unqualified personal trainers. When you are new to the gym and do not know where to start, it can be helpful to work with a personal trainer. However, not all personal trainers may be as qualified as they should be. If you got injured while working out with a personal trainer, you may have a gym negligence case on your hands.
  • Inadequate cleanliness. Gyms also have a duty to keep their premises clean and disinfected for their patrons. They should regularly can equipment and other items in the gym, reducing the risk of bacteria. If they fail to do this, gym members could get sick.

What to Do If You Were Injured at a Gym

If you sustain injuries at a gym, you should first notify the gym owner or manager. They may have to file an accident report. Then, if you’re physically able, try to gather as much evidence as possible of the accident scene. For instance, if you were injured from broken exercise equipment, take photos of the equipment.

Next, seek emergency medical care, even if you don’t feel too badly hurt. Sometimes injuries can worsen over time, and you don’t want to put your health in jeopardy. A doctor should look over your injuries and then recommend the proper treatment.

It is also wise to discuss your case with a personal injury lawyer. If your injuries were due to the gym’s negligence, you may be able to receive compensation for your medical bills, lost wages and other losses. A lawyer can help you pursue a claim against the liable parties and improve your chances of getting a fair settlement.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
