When we enter any public business in New York City, we legally become “invitees” of that establishment. In catering to “invitees,” businesses have certain responsibilities to their guests, including maintaining reasonably safe premises free of hazards. But as we all know, many establishments do not adequately honor their duty to guests. Nowhere is this contrast more apparent than in the many gyms, spas, and health clubs in the city.
As members or guests, we patronize New York City’s gyms, health clubs, and spas to exercise and receive health-related services, hoping to increase our body’s potential and our overall well being. Ironic then that numerous slip, trip, and fall accidents occur in health centers every year. Victims of gym, spa, and health club negligence in New York City, and especially those injured in slip, trip, and fall accidents, may be able to pursue compensation for their damages in a personal injury lawsuit.

- Gym floor littered with work-out equipment, like bar bells
- Inadequate, or negligent, security staff whose inattention leads to assault or robbery
