When Do Gym and Leisure Centre Accidents Occur?
While some injuries sustained at leisure centres or gyms are simple accidents, there are numerous instances where the injury is caused by negligent behaviour.
The majority of the UK’s sporting and leisure operators are careful to minimise risk to members of the public, but accidents do still occur where the fault can clearly be attributed to the actions (or inaction) of the management team. If the facility has failed to provide a safe environment for the public to use, those responsible can be held liable when injuries are sustained.
Suffering an injury at a gym or leisure centre is often particularly distressing because these are generally regarded as safe places. Common causes of injury include:
- Poorly maintained equipment and machinery
- Incorrectly stored equipment
- Staff not undertaking appropriate safety procedures
- Slips or trips on wet or uneven surfaces
- Instructors providing incorrect advice
