Attorneys Aiding Gym Slip, Trip, & Fall Victims

weights-in-gymGyms, spas, and other health clubs are facilities that were created to promote positive fitness goals and enhanced well-being for users. However, if these facilities are not properly cleaned, maintained, and managed, these beneficial facilities can translate into among the most likely sites for slip and fall accidents. Property owners have a duty to their customers and visitors, to keep their facility in a reasonably safe condition. If they do not adhere to those rules, which are delegated to them through a premises liability, then individuals who are injured in their gym or their parking lot are likely to be eligible for compensation for damages.

Our capable, expert team of attorneys at The Philadelphia Law Firm has helped hundreds of previous slip and fall accident victims. In many cases, thanks to our dedication, and nonstop loyalty, we were able to help victims secure amicable settlements or substantial court victories.

Hazards In Philadelphia Gyms, Spas, And Health Clubs

Spa, gym, and health club slip and fall accident cases typically arise from issues like:gym-room-philly

  • Broken or uneven floor tiles, carpeting, or other walking surfaces
  • Wet floors in bathroom, or rest of facility
  • Dangerous equipment, wiring, and cables
  • Broken equipment, trash or debris

Victims who were injured in this manner will likely be entitled to compensation that covers medical bills and lost wages. Victims may also be entitled to compensation for non-economic damages including loss of enjoyment of life, and pain and suffering. We encourage all gym slip and fall accident victims to contact a legal professional when injured. Additionally, we urge victims to refrain from speaking to potentially liable parties, such as property owners, or insurance companies. Instead, if presented with this situation, refer those inquiring to an experienced personal injury lawyer for the best possible results.

How Much Is My Accident Worth?

Slip and fall accidents in gyms, spas, and health clubs can have vastly different levels of compensation for victims. For example, a slip,trip, or fall victim who sustained a sprained wrist will not need as much financial assistance as a victim who fractured their leg.  Furthermore, current medical costs and lost wages are just one piece of the ever-growing financial compensation puzzle. Individuals should also consider future lost wages, and future medical bills when contemplating appropriate reparations for damages. With the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer, victims may also receive compensation for non-economic damages.

Typical Injuries

  • Lacerations and scarring
  • Bone fractures, dislocations, and hyperextensions
  • Ligament/ Muscle/ Joint tears, sprains, and strains
  • Head trauma including TBIs, (Traumatic Brain Injuries) and concussions
  • Chronic neck and back pain
  • Spinal cord damage

Several potential slip, trip, and fall injuries can permanently disable individuals. For example, TBIs and concussions can cause permanent brain damage, detrimentally impairing an individual’s cognitive functioning. Additionally, rare spinal cord injuries can lead victims to temporary or permanent paralysis, and other life-altering disabilities.  More common possibilities for victims after a slip and fall accident are surgery, physical therapy, and rehabilitation. In fact, in 20 % of slips, trips, and falls, victims sustain a broken bone or suffer a severe head injury.
