According to accident claim experts writing for the North Devon Journal, a spin-cycling enthusiast prevailed on the personal injury compensation claim she made against a local gymnasium after the pedal of the exercise bike she was using during a class broke suddenly, catapulting her off the piece of fitness equipment and causing injuries to her finger.
Charlotte Brown had been in attendance at the Barnstaple-based Fitness Factory for her regular spin-cycle class when incident involving the broken pedal occurred. The woman suffered a broken finger in her fall, resulting in several personal and work issues until her recovery several months afterwards, according to her personal injury claims.
This was actually not the first time the woman suffered injuries at her gym. Previous to the incident that resulted in her broken finger, there was another issue that occurred with the very same exercise machine, which suffered a similar equipment failure that left Ms Brown with several minor bruises.
The Devon-based gym awarded a compensation settlement to the injured spin-cycling enthusiast for the injuries she suffered due to the faulty exercise bike – a piece of exercise equipment that had only been used for its designated purpose yet still failed, something that one of Ms Brown’s legal representatives said was ‘worrying’ to a significant degree. The amount of compensation paid out to the injured woman was not made a matter of public record as a condition of the award, legal experts reported, though the possibility exists that it could be of a substantial size.
