When using sporting equipment, such as gym machines and bikes, we expect that they'll support us and work as they should while we exercise. However, when this type of equipment fails, it can lead to serious accidents and injuries.

If you've experienced an injury as a result of using defective sporting goods, our lawyers can help you to claim compensation for the injuries you've suffered. We've helped our clients with a wide range of defective sporting goods injury claims, so whether you or a loved one has been affected by defective equipment, our lawyers can help.

Our team has over 30 years of experience in product liability claims, and have been accredited as personal injury experts, making us best-placed to assist you with your claim. Our team of solicitors can also help you to access any rehabilitation services you may need following your injury, helping you to make as full a recovery as possible.

The majority of the claims we handle are on a No Win No Fee basis. This means that there's nothing for you to pay upfront, and that you won’t have to pay any legal fees if your claim isn’t successful*.

Defective sporting goods injury claims may also include defective nutritional supplements. See our defective food and lifestyle supplements page for more information.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Types Of Sporting Goods Injuries Can You Claim For?

The types of injury you sustain will depend on the type of defective equipment you've been using. This can also apply to nutritional supplements or sports nutrition, for example, when allergens were not included on the ingredients list and resulted in illness, or a nutritional supplement becoming contaminated.

Other types of injury may involve sporting equipment, such as gym equipment becoming faulty, protective sports equipment such as goggles not performing as they should, or when a piece of equipment does not support the appropriate level of physical exertion.

Defective sporting equipment can lead to anything from cuts and bruises to serious and life-changing injuries. We have the experience needed to support you, no matter what your injuries are.

If you're unsure about anything regarding defective sporting goods injury claims, get in touch with our lawyers who'll be happy to advise you. You can call us on 0800 056 4110 or contact us online for a free consultation on your case.

What Is The Manufacturer Responsible For?

When supplying sporting goods and equipment, the manufacturer is responsible for ensuring the product can stand up to the physical exercise that it’s intended for. The boundaries of proper use are something that the manufacturer must set, and the product must be able to withstand these boundaries. The product's limitations should be highlighted by the manufacturer, as well as any possible risks the user may be exposed to when using it.

Fast friendly and efficient service from Sheffield team all dealt with electronically due to distance with buying on south coast... The price quoted was fair, fixed and compared favourably against other large firms. Would definitely use again and recommend to anyone.
