Negligence details




The realm of sports injuries is large with attendance at a gymnasium including fitness centres, health centres or sports centres accounting for a wide range of injuries. Personal injury in a gym can occur as a result of foul play, facilities that are defective, supervision that is inadequate, poor refereeing, defective premises, equipment that is fault and intentional criminal assault by a player, another member, a spectator or any other person. In general, except for deliberate criminal assault most injuries caused by negligence in a gymnasium, fitness centre, health centre or sports centre will be the responsibility of the facility rather than the individual involved in causing the injury. Almost all indoor sports businesses will be covered by insurance to indemnify the facility against negligence claims instigated by gym injury solicitors for personal injury to people who use the gym, including spectators or visitors who may be injured whilst on the premises.


A gymnasium, fitness centre, health centre or sports centre has a responsibility to keep all people on their premises reasonably safe from danger. This not only includes a requirement for adequate supervision and ensuring that premises and equipment are well maintained and free from defects but also extends to risk assessments for any intrinsically dangerous procedures of which there are many in a gym. In the event of personal injury caused by negligence, gym injury solicitors should be consulted as soon as possible to ensure evidence preservation and to obtain witness statements with which to prove liability. If the gymnasium, fitness centre, health centre or sports centre has failed to take reasonable care for the health and safety of those using the facilities that are available on the premises then they may be liable to pay compensation for any injury sustained. There are time limits and you should take legal advice from a sports injury solicitor as soon as possible after the event.


The assessment for the damages award for the pain and suffering in a personal injury compensation claim is based on the extent of the injury, the recovery period and whether or not there is any long term disability. The judge makes the assessment based on government guidelines, previously decided cases and personal experience as a practicing personal injury lawyer. The final award also includes all other financial losses including lost wages and an amount that is assessed for numerous other items which cannot be calculated mathematically including disadvantage on the job market, loss of lifestyle, loss of congenial employment etc.
