Charlotte Personal Injury Attorney Matt Arnold answers the question: “What can you sue for in a personal injury case?”
If you’ve joined a gym, especially one that’s part of a national chain, you’ve likely had to sign some kind of contract before being allowed on any of the equipment. In addition to extracting your money on a monthly basis, the contracts have another purpose: to try and protect the company in the event of a personal injury lawsuit. Many such contracts contain language waiving your ability to sue in the event an injury should occur on the gym’s property. These provisions are known as liability waivers and they act as legal shields for gyms, protecting the big companies at the expense of injured members.
