Compensation For Leeds Man Injured In Gym

A Leeds man has been awarded compensation as a result of injuries he sustained at his gym.

Someone had left two 20kg weights stacked dangerously on the top of the stack of weights on a weights machine in the gym.

Our client was taking them off when one dropped off breaking his foot.

The man was a self employed window cleaner and as a result of this injury he was unable to work for a period of time.

Investigations uncovered that this type of incident was a common occurrence and a claim was therefore brought against the gym for failing to have an adequate safety regime in place.

Irwin Mitchell’s Leeds team assisted the man in securing £5,200 for his injuries and for compensation for loss of earnings as a result.

It is hoped that lessons have been learnt by the gym, changes are made to their safety regime and that, as a result of this case, accidents of this type do not happen in future.

If you've been injured in a gym accident, our personal injury lawyers could help you claim compensation. See our Gym Accident Compensation Claims page for more information.
