Exercise Equipment Accidents
Regular exercise is a great habit to get in to but it doesn’t come without risk. Most of us never suffer an injury due to equipment, but others are not so fortunate. Equipment design, manufacturing defects, improper installation, and improper use all contribute to exercise equipment accidents and injuries – both at home and at fitness centers, gyms, and health clubs.
Who can be held liable for such injuries? While liability depends greatly on the injury and the circumstances surrounding it, the equipment manufacturer, retailer, and the exercise studio or fitness club could all have responsibility for a user’s injuries.
The only way to know for sure if someone else is liable for your injury is to speak with a personal injury attorney who can investigate your situation and determine if you have grounds for filing a negligence lawsuit.
Common Types Of Exercise Equipment Injuries
Just as there are many types of exercise equipment, there are many types of related injuries. The most common are:
- Head and body trauma
- Staph and fungal infections
- Broken bones
How Do Exercise Equipment Accidents Happen?
Accidents can happen at any time, even by people who have been using equipment for decades. Many accidents happen through no fault of the user and may happen because of:
- Inadequate spacing and crowding of equipment.
- Unsanitary conditions.
- Dangerous equipment or equipment in disrepair.
- Unclear or missing instructions.
