The accident

A lady contacted Actons Injury Solicitors after she developed a condition known as rhabdomyolysis. This was caused by overexertion during her first session at a new gym.

She had just joined the gym and went for an induction with a personal trainer. Before the induction started, the trainer measured her hydration levels which were very low. However, this was disregarded by the trainer and he went ahead with the session.

As part of the induction process, she was asked to undertake a series of intense exercises on a TRX suspension trainer, including arm curls, press ups, pull ups and squats. This was despite the trainer knowing that she had not taken part in any kind of exercise for many years. The lady was pushed by the trainer to complete the exercises but had to stop several times throughout the induction.

It also later turned out that the trainer was not properly qualified on instructing gym members on how to use the TRX suspension trainer.


The injury

As a result of the trainer’s carelessness, the lady developed rhabdomyolysis. This caused her to suffer significant muscle pain and weakness for 14 months. She also developed chronic fatigue syndrome as a result of the rhabdomyolysis. She was reliant on her husband for support and had to reduce her working hours.


What is rhabdomyolysis?

Rhabdomyolysis is a condition where there is a breakdown of skeletal muscle. This causes severe muscle pain and varying degrees of weakness. A common complication is kidney injury.

Full recovery is generally possible, but it can take many months for the symptoms to resolve fully. There are several possible causes of rhabdomyolysis which include strenuous exercise, crush injuries, medications (statins) and infection.


How we helped claim compensation

We believed that the injury was the gym’s fault as they failed to provide properly qualified personal trainers. After submitting a detailed letter of claim and investigating the gym’s relevant documents, we were able to get the gym to admit that their trainer was responsible for the lady’s injuries. We secured £75,000 in compensation.


If you’ve developed rhabdomyolysis as a result of a gym accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to make a no win, no fee compensation claim with the help of our specialist lawyers. Give us a call today to find out how we can help you.
