Philadelphia Lawyer for Slip/Trip and Fall in Gym
Health Clubs and Gyms are breeding grounds for accidents. There are many ways that members and guests can get hurt. Health Clubs and Gyms are no different than restaurants and other businesses where the public is invited to join, come, and confer an economic benefit on the business owner. In that regard, the proofs are the same. A business operator, like a gym or health club, must keep its premises safe for its customers so as not to expose them to or cause injury or harm. This is the law. However, just because you slip or trip in a gym or health club, does not mean that you automatically have the right to recover damages against them. Know your rights! At The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, PC, our staff and attorneys know the law and can help you determine whether or not you have a case. Consultations are always free, so give us a call today!
In order to prevail against a gym or health club, you must show that the Gym or Health club knew of a dangerous condition or should have known through reasonable inspection. Puddles of water, sweat, improperly placed equipment, and failure to properly clean all lead to accidents where customers fall and injure themselves. The discovery of what the Gym did or did not do should be left to a qualified attorney. At the Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, PC, our attorneys know what to look for. They know the questions to ask. If you or a loved one were injured in a Slip and Fall or Trip and Fall at a gym or health club, call us. Consultations are free and we are here to help.
The types of injuries routinely seen at a gym are:
- Severed muscles
- Head injuries
- Back injuries
- Neck injuries
- Sprains and Contusions
In addition to slips and trips resulting from failure to maintain the premises, Gyms are responsible for problems with their workout equipment. Equipment must be cleaned and maintained. Many injuries occur because the person before you used a machine and spilled water or produced an abnormal amount of sweat. When you go to use the machine, you are at risk to get seriously injured by falling or losing grip or any number of combinations. At the Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, PC, our staff and attorneys are ready to assist you in a claim. We offer a no recovery, no fee guarantee.
Remember, keep your eyes open and be observant in a gym or health club. While we cannot list everything to look for, keep the following in mind. Slip and falls and trip and falls occur when:
- The bathrooms are not kept up and there is water on the floor.
- The equipment is not maintained and routinely inspected so that you trip over the equipment
- The flooring is cracked or not level
- Wires and/or cables that are not secured on the floor by tape or proper covering.
- Carpeting that is worn or has holes, rips or deviations.
