Compensation For Slipping At The Gym

Bartletts Solicitors recently represented a client who was injured after slipping over and injuring himself at the gym. Mr S was a member of a well-known gym chain and was a regular visitor to his local branch. One evening he had just finished a lengthy cardio session and by his own admission was feeling light-headed, when he went out into the corridor to get some water. As he was walking towards the water fountain, he slipped and fell onto the hard floor, fracturing his wrist in two places.

Though the main gym room had anti-slip rubberised flooring, the corridor floor was wood effect laminate, and at the time of the accident was in a wet and slippery condition having been cleaned roughly 10 minutes before and not properly dried. Gym staff called an ambulance for Mr S and he was taken to hospital for treatment. He was in plaster for 8 weeks due to his fractured wrist, and only regained full mobility in the joint 6 months later.

  • Our Legal Advice
Mr S contacted Bartletts Solicitors after reading about our experience in gym accident claims on our website. After reviewing the circumstances of the accident, we agreed to take on his case on a no win no fee basis. In correspondence with the gym chain’s insurers we argued firstly, that the corridor should have had the same anti-slip rubber flooring as the main gym area, and secondly, that if the gym’s staff had been unable to dry the floor in the corridor immediately after cleaning it, then a wet floor warning sign should have been posted to reduce the risk of a slipping accident. The wet and slippery state of the floor and lack of warning signs meant that the corridor was unsafe for visitors, and because of this the gym had breached the duty of care it owed to Mr S under the Occupiers’ Liability Act 1957. Full liability for Mr S’s injury was subsequently accepted by the gym’s insurers, with our client receiving £3,250 in compensation.
