Fitness Center Liability: Overview

Modified on 2009/10/14 21:45 by admin
A fitness center must warn its members of all nonobvious dangers and those dangerous conditions of which the fitness center is aware. Basically, the fitness center must remain reasonably safe. Unfortunately, some fitness centers fail to adequately maintain their exercise equipment. Such failures can lead to serious injuries. In addition, with the improvement of defibrillator technology and the device's concurrent reduction in price, many healthcare professionals recommend that fitness centers purchase and train their employees in the use of defibrillators. Defibrillators can make the difference between life and death when a fitness center patron suffers a heart attack.

See your doctor if you have suffered a severe injury because of your health club's poor maintenance practices, lack of medical equipment, or lack of proper medical training for its employees. In addition, it may be important to contact an attorney who can help you protect your legal rights. Please keep in mind that there may be time limits within which you must commence suit.
