Gym Accident Attorneys in St. Louis

St. Louis Gym Accident Lawyers. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commision, in 2012 459,978 people were injured while exercising or using exercise equipment. While there are many positive things associated with going to the gym such as weight loss, building muscle, and preventing diseases such as diabetes and heart disease, if you’re not aware of how to work out correctly and safely, gym injuries can prove to be long-lasting and at times fatal. Other factors such as defective equipment, improper regular maintenance of gym facilities, and over-exerting yourself can also cause gym accidents and injuries. It is important that if you sustain a gym injury to contact a Gym Accident Lawyer at the Dixon Injury Firm as soon as possible.

Chris Dixon

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.

There are many different ways that a gym accident could occur. Lack of information on how to work out correctly is the main cause of gym accidents. If you’re new to working out, it is important to warm-up before exercising, learn how to properly use equipment, and listen to your body if you’re feeling weak, tired, or dizzy. Over-exerting yourself can cause serious gym injuries such as sprained ankles and wrists, and broken bones if you aren’t working out correctly. Defective equipment can pose serious risks when working out. A treadmill belt could suddenly snap, or the resistance motor on an elliptical could randomly break. If gym equipment isn’t regularly maintained or if a fitness instructor doesn’t disclose the risks associated with a particular workout, this can cause serious gym injuries. If you are involved in a gym accident, you could be entitled to compensation for damages due to your injuries. It is important to seek attention from a medical professional immediately after a gym accident, and then consult a Gym Accident Lawyer to review your case.

How to Prevent Gym Injuries

Many gym injuries can be prevented by proper preparation and being knowledgeable of how to correctly workout. The following steps can help prevent common gym injuries such as sprains and pulled muscles:

  • It is important to warm-up before working out to allow your body to increase its internal core temperature and get blood pumping to the muscles.
  • Start slow when you begin working out and gradually ease into the exercise. Doing too much too soon can cause gym accidents.
  • Be aware of your surroundings, and be courteous to other gym users. Leaving weights in the middle of a path where someone can trip on them, or not wiping down equipment and causing someone to lose their grip on it can cause serious gym injuries.
  • Learn proper technique. If you are working out, but doing it wrong, you can cause damage such as muscle and tendon pulls, worn down bones, and other injuries related to overuse.

A woman fell to her death in a rock climbing gym accident when she failed to clip in her harness to the automatic belay system the gym used. While the gym has guests sign waivers that acknowledge various risks, the truth is that gym accidents happen all the time.

Between 1990 to 2007, an estimated 970,801 gym-related injuries were reported nationwide. If you or someone you care about has sustained gym injuries, after immediately consulting a medical professional, you should talk to a Gym Accident Lawyer about your injuries.
