There are thought to be more than 5,000 gyms in the UK, which are all used by members of the public to exercise and work out. There is no doubt they are a great place to get fit and to keep healthy, but they can also be dangerous places too. The number of people using gyms has risen sharply since the 1980s, and this has been followed by a number of people making gym accident claims. If you have been injured in a gym accident that was not your fault then Ashley Ainsworth are here to help you.

Examples of gym accidents
Gyms are full of complicated and heavy equipment which needs to be used and maintained correctly. It is not just machinery that can cause injury though, below is a list of some of the most common gym injuries which we help people get compensation for.
- Injuries caused by using broken or defective exercise equipment
- Injuries caused by poor maintenance of equipment
- Injuries caused by the lack of or incorrect instruction by a gym instructor
- Injuries caused by slipping or tripping on wet floors
- Injuries caused by tripping in an area cluttered by moveable hazards, for example dumbbells left on the floor
Common injuries sustained in gym accidents include fractured and broken bones, and muscle sprains and tears. Regardless of whether the injury occurred on a treadmill, rowing machine, exercise bike, leg press or any other piece of gym equipment, you may be entitled to compensation.
Gym owners have a legal duty to protect your health and safety by taking measures set out in stringent regulations. Unfortunately, measures to cut costs can lead to lapses in following these guidelines, and accidents result. If the negligence of the gym operators has caused you to have an accident and suffer injury then you may be able to claim gym accident compensation.
