John’s Gym Accident Settles for £17,000 (Belfast)
John was attending his local gym as a hobby and a means to keep fit. Whilst using an overhead triceps extension machine, the cable pulley system snapped, resulting in John falling forward and striking his nose on the floor. John was stunned but remained conscious. Shortly after he had severe pain, scarring and swelling on the bridge of his nose.
John contacted Paschal O’Hare Personal Injury Solicitors
John contacted our team of solicitors with a view to claim after doing a quick Google search. Once he consulted one of our experts, he was advised that the owners of the gym were at fault due to poor maintenance of equipment. After representations were made liability was accepted on behalf of the gym. Our team arranged for John to see a range of medical experts to have his injury fully investigated, including an orthopaedic surgeon, a consultant plastic surgeon, and a consultant ENT.
After medical evidence was served, negotiations commenced and John’s case settled for £17,000.
