From yoga to Pilates, CrossFit to good old-fashioned weightlifting, gyms and exercise facilities are a common sight across the country. With so many people testing their physical limits in an effort to get fit and healthy, injuries are inevitable, and they can be caused by everything from inadequate stretching before a workout to improper use of equipment. The more complex and sophisticated the workout regime, the more important it becomes that participants receive adequate instruction and proper supervision.

About Gym Injuries

An On Treadmill 1954524Every year, more than 4 million people end up with gym injuries. This includes fitness clubs, exercise studios, Pilates classes, and yoga centers. These places are minefields, filled with deadly weights, one-ton workout machines, pulleys, steel writes, wet floors, and bacteria-filled mats. Many think that membership agreements are ironclad. But, this isn’t always the truth. Knowledgeable attorneys can help get you the justice you deserve for your gym injuries.

Getting Help after a Gym Injury

Eery 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
  • Disfigurement
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Punitive damages

Waiver

While a waiver may release the gym from some liability, it does not release the gym of all liability. However, 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.
