Will it be worth my while making a claim for compensation for an injury from faulty gym equipment? I strained my back quite badly.
Before you decide to pursue a claim for compensation for an injury from faulty gym equipment it is important that you are aware of the costs of taking legal action and the value of your compensation claim for a faulty gym equipment injury.
Unfortunately, we cannot tell you how much compensation for an injury from faulty gym equipment you can recover without more information about the circumstances surrounding your injury.
Before compensation amounts can be calculated it must be determined whether your back injury will heal quickly and whether there will be any long-term impact on your health.
The circumstances surrounding your injury and the nature and severity of your condition will determine the potential value of your claim for a gym injury. As there are many variable factors to consider, you are strongly advised to speak with a personal injury solicitor about your compensation claim.
Before a solicitor can calculate how much compensation you are entitled to seek, you will need to have a full medical examination to determine the severity of your back injury. The impact the injury has had on your personal life and ability to carry out day-to-day tasks is also an important factor to consider as a ‘loss of amenity’ may have to be factored into the amount of compensation you are entitled to seek
In addition to pain, suffering, and loss of amenity, a claim for a gym injury can also include ‘special damages’. These are any costs or expenses which you have incurred as a direct result of your injury. Loss of earnings, medical expenses and the cost of using alternative transport if your injury means you are unable to drive can all be included in a compensation claim for a faulty gym equipment injury.
After a solicitor has reviewed all the factors surrounding your injury, he or she will advise you on the strength of your compensation claim, the cost of legal action and the amount of compensation you may be entitled to seek. This will allow you to make an informed decision whether it is worthwhile pursuing compensation for an injury from faulty gym equipment.
