Bannatyne’s spas, hotels and health clubs must be as safe as possible for customers and the public to use and for its employees to work in. The company has a duty of care towards its workforce and must take all reasonably practicable steps to prevent accidents from occurring on its premises. It must put effective management systems in place, perform regular risk assessments and ensure its real estate and equipment is properly maintained. Bannatynes is not just responsible for the actions of itself or its management – it is also vicariously responsible for the actions of its employees as well.
When Bannatyne’s or its staff are negligent towards this duty of care, and people are injured as a direct result of this negligence, the company can face Bannatyne’s injury compensation claims. Health clubs, gyms and spas pose a range of dangers to staff and customers. Some of the types of accidents that can occur include:
– Slips, trips and falls
– Injuries caused by the improper use of equipment
– Injuries caused by poor supervision
After your accident in Bannatyne’s, the company may offer you a cash gift, a free membership or another deal, but you should not accept this until you have discussed your Bannatyne’s compensation claim with Clearwater Solicitors. If possible, you should also try to collect evidence to support your claim, although if you are unable to do so, our solicitors may be able to do so on your behalf. Some of the evidence that could support your claim includes:
– Photographs that show how the accident occurred and where it happened
– The names and telephone numbers of witnesses to the incident
– Copies of accident book reports detailing the incident. Tell Bannatyne’s about your accident, tell them to record it in the accident book, and ask for a copy of this
You should visit a doctor or go to the hospital to have your injuries looked at and treated, even if you receive first aid from Bannatynes. You will need to have your injuries recorded in your medical records.
Keep hold of any documentation that shows the financial losses you incurred due to the accident, such as bank statements, bills, paycheques and receipts, as you can recover these losses in your compensation claim.
