Gym Injury Liability
Every gym injury is unique, however after an injury you may be able to file a claim against the fitness center or trainer.Even if you have signed a waiver releasing your rights when you signed up for a gym membership, you may still be able to file a personal injury lawsuit against the responsible parties.
Gym Injury Damages
Depending on the gym injury, there are a variety of compensations that could be available to you including:
- Medical bills
- Physical therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Lost earning capacity
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Punitive damages
While a waiver may release the gym from some liability, it does not release the gym of all liability. However, a liability does not protect the gym from all reckless or negligent operations. Health club owners should have safe facilities that are clean and well-maintained. This includes no hazards like wet floors. This also includes hiring competent staff who are training and can use and maintain the facilities.
It is important to read the liability waiver and question any contents you aren’t sure about. Front desk personnel try to bury the liability waiver among other documents. Keep a copy of all of the documents you sign in the event you do suffer an injury.
