Fitness Center Injuries

Fitness Center Injuries

Exercise is an important part of life for many people. It is an activity completed in an effort to promote health and fitness. However, when a gym does not take the required safety precautions, patrons may be in danger of injury. State and health agencies regulate laws regarding the safety of these facilities, and any failure to adhere to such requirements may be grounds for legal action.

If you or someone you love has been injured because of the negligent behavior of a fitness center management company or employee, you may be able to seek financial compensation for your medical expenses and other losses. Contact the Charleston personal injury lawyers of the Steinberg Law Firm at 843-720-2800 to speak to a legal professional about your case today.


There are many different types of machinery and equipment available in gyms that can be dangerous to customers. Some of the most common types of gym injuries are:

  • Strained or torn muscles
  • Dislocated joints
  • Broken bones
  • Lacerations
  • Organ damage
  • Bruising or bleeding

Fitness equipment must be checked for maintenance problems on a regular basis. If a machine becomes unreliable, it may lead to injury for an unknowing patron. Other sources of accident include free weights, slippery floors, and a failure to warn customers about dangers.
