Negligent Gym & Personal Trainers


Negligent Gym & Personal Trainers

Representing Alabama Injury Victims Since 1958

Fitness professionals including gym and personal trainers have a legal duty to provide a safe environment for their clients’ fitness sessions and to dispense advice with skill and knowledge. Whether you attend a boot camp, yoga class or work one-on-one with a personal trainer, getting fit under the watchful eye of a fitness instructor can be a great way to get in shape. However, when instructors are inexperienced or unqualified, you may be at risk for serious injury. People who work with a trainer have a right to work with an instructor who is adequately trained and qualified. The reality, however, is that not all instructors have the background, skill or knowledge required for their position. This puts clients in a vulnerable position and is particularly problematic when they have a pre-existing medical condition such as high blood pressure or heart disease. Unfortunately, sometimes even the most diligent professional fails to live up to that responsibility with the result being harm and loss to their clients.

With decades of collective experience and extensive resources, our firm can handle a variety of cases, no matter how complex.

If you have been the victim of professional negligence on the part of a gym or personal trainer, you may be eligible to receive damages from the fitness professional’s insurance company or the individual. Consider whether the instructor took steps to prevent your injuries. Did he or she warn you of the risks inherent in a particular exercise, instruct you in the proper technique, or modify and adapt a program to fit your needs? If you suspect you may have been injured because of the actions of an unqualified instructor, speak with one of our lawyers today and learn more about your options.
