Potential Gym Dangers

Most people do not consider the gym as a site for potentially dangerous injuries, but such dismissal can lead to both physical injuries and financial woes. Although there are statistically fewer injuries in training facilities like local gyms than at-home gyms, local gyms are more susceptible to safety issues such as equipment overuse and lack of sanitation. Since hundreds of people use gym equipment daily, cardiovascular machines and weight training equipment get used much more than home equipment, which can cause the equipment to wear out or malfunction sooner.

If you have suffered from injury or illness due to the negligence of a gym, you may be able to pursue financial compensation through a civil lawsuit. To discuss your legal options, contact the dedicated Appleton personal injury lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® by calling 800-242-2874.

Common Hazards Associated with Gym Negligence

A properly cleaned facility with equipment that receives timely and adequate maintenance rewards the dedicated individual for their commitment to fitness and health. The failure of gym personnel to uphold their responsibilities or the failure of a gym’s policies to promote a safe environment, however, can lead to needless dangers. The following are representative of common hazards associated with gym negligence:

  • Bacterial infections, including staph
  • Fungal infections
  • Slip, trip, or fall from cardiovascular equipment which malfunctions
  • Broken bones/fractures due to improper maintenance of weight machines
