Liability – Who Can Be Held Liable in Defective Product Litigation

Who is at fault if you were injured? That is subject to investigation, but here are some possibilities. You can likely hold the gym responsible if there is a showing that they failed to correct the issue when they had knowledge.

If you were injured make sure you seek immediate medical attention for your injuries.

Waiver Issues and Defective Product Lawsuits

Often times these waivers can prevent you from pursuing a claim for your injuries. However, if it possible to “go around” the waiver issue. Here are two possible methods of piercing the waiver issue. First, if you can prove gross negligence. Gross negligence is considered a significant breach of your standard duty of care. For example if the gym does not act to recall the item when they know of its defect, this can be gross negligence.
