Founder and Managing Attorney
I pride myself on tirelessly fighting for the injury victims who continuously trust me with their cases. It is an honor to serve and a passion which drives my existence.
In 2012 459,978 people were injured while exercising or using exercise equipment. While exercise equipment manufacturers place extensive warranties on products, these warranties can be proven faulty if the equipment is proven outright dangerous. Missouri defines product liability in its Statutes Section 537.760. It says a “product liability claim” occurs when (1) the defendant sold a product as part of a business, (2) the product was used as reasonably anticipated, and (3) the product was either defective or it was unreasonably dangerous to sell without an adequate warning. The defendant is “strictly liable” for any damages that are caused. If you or someone you love has sustained a gym injury, it is critical to contact a Gym Injury Lawyer to see if you have a legitimate gym injury case. This can save you from dealing with expensive medical bills, loss of wages, and other expenses, and provide you with the compensation you deserve.
Common Gym Injuries
According to a study from the University of Arkansas, there has been a 35 percent increase in gym injuries in recent years. The following is a list of common gym injuries that can occur:
- Joint dislocations
- Back injuries
- Muscle tears
- Broken bones
Minor gym injuries such as sprains and minor fractures can be avoided by proper preparation prior to working out, but the fact of the matter is that gym injuries such as the ones listed above can be the fault of a negligent company. If a gym doesn’t do routine maintenance of the facilities, or if a fitness instructor doesn’t disclose the risks associated with a particular workout, this can cause serious injury in those using the services. It is vital that if you have sustained a gym injury that you seek help from a medical professional immediately, and consult a gym injury lawyer to protect you during this difficult time.
