The term, “No pain, no gain” does not mean certain sports injuries sustained in the course of playing sports or working out should have happened. Under Florida law, personal trainers, gym owners, and sports coaches may be liable for injuries and accidents caused by their negligence, such as the failure to properly instruct, supervise, use proper and safe equipment, and take other reasonable measures to prevent harm.
Even though playing sports or engaging in any athletic activity carries the risk of injury, many injuries are caused by the careless or reckless conduct of others, particularly where the injured person placed his or her trust in a trainer or coach who presumably had the skill, knowledge, and experience to provide proper and preventative supervision. These injuries may be compounded further by the malpractice of doctors, hospitals, and staff responsible for proper and non-negligent diagnosis and treatment.
