About injuries caused by personal trainers

Any person who employs a personal trainer to help improve their health and fitness does so with the expectation that their trainer will have specialist knowledge to help them achieve their fitness objectives without harm or injury.

Although there is as yet no legal obligation for personal trainers to possess liability for insurance, it is advised that they do. This is because any negligently planned or poorly supervised personal training sessions have the potential to cause you injury and may, in the absence of liability insurance, bring about the financial ruin of a personal training business.

A number of different liability insurance options exist for personal trainers such as professional liability cover, civil liberty cover and professional indemnity cover.

The type chosen will very much depend on the nature of the business. If you suffer injuries while working with a personal trainer, and those injuries could not be counted as common side effects or expected side effects from the kind of exercise you are doing, your personal trainer could be accused of professional negligence.

Types of injury

Injuries caused by the negligence of a personal trainer can range in severity, with some injuries persisting for a long time after your accident.

The types of injuries you can sustain during a personal trainer workout include:

  • Muscle pulls and strains
  • Sprains
  • Shoulder damage
  • Knee damage
  • Shin splints
  • Tendinitis
  • Fractured and broken bones
  • Dislocation

Whatever your injury, if it was caused by the negligence of a personal trainer, you are eligible to make a claim for compensation.
