I took a spinning class at my gym and my foot slipped off the bike as I was instructed to stand up on it. The instructor strapped my feet in the bike because it was my first spinning class. I fractured my ankle from the fall. Do I have a case against the gym?

 

A:

Yes, you may have a case against the gym.  If the instructor improperly strapped your foot in the pedal, you may have a case against the gym.  The instructor also had a duty to offer appropriate instructions on how to use the bike during the spinning class.  If your foot slipped off the pedal as you stood up because the instructor failed to give appropriate instructions on how to use the bike, then you may also have a case against the gym in that situation.

You may also have a case against the bike/pedal manufacturer if there was some defect on the pedal.

Therefore, it is important that you speak to a seasoned PA and NJ sports injury lawyer about your accident at the gym and provide the details in order to better assess your case.  Feel free to contact us for a free no obligation consultation.
