Gym workout ends in hospital! David was using a weight machine at the gym. The weights were stacked incorrectly and over stacked. He removed some loose weights from the loading bar and as he took a weight off, one of the other weights fell onto David’s foot. He sustained swelling, bruising, bleeding and pain to his foot and fractured his big toe. David was unable to work for two weeks and his foot required treatment for a few months after the accident. The gym’s insurer company disputed liability and Court proceedings were issued. However, despite the insurer’s stance on liability, we were able to negotiate a settlement of £2,750 for David utilising all of our knowledge and experience in this area of the law.
