Can I sue my gym for injury?

In a gym, the gym owners have a duty to provide their services with due care and skill. The premises must also be fit for purpose.

If the premises don’t meet the standard and a person is injured as a result of this, then they may be entitled to sue for negligence. The same goes for if you’re injured using faulty equipment or unmaintained equipment.

However, you still have a duty of care as well. So, if you’re injured because of your inexperience, you’re using a piece of gym equipment negligently, or you’re injured by another gym member, it would likely be difficult for you to recover any losses suffered due to your injuries.
