Gym Injury Big LA Award, Excellent DC Co-Management

Patricia, while working out at her El Segundo gym, fell when her foot became caught in a metal contraption covering the electrical wiring on the floor next to her exercise machine.

 

The gym violated the building code by placing the wiring in an aisle.

 

Patricia denied signing a waiver of liability – common in gyms – and the signature presented was not her own. 

 

She suffered a fracture and dislocated elbow.

 

Patricia initially sought care from Eric Yu, DC who co-managed this case with orthopedist Brian Magovern, MD.

 

The defendant claimed she signed a liability waiver and should not have walked into the aisle where the wiring was located.

 

The jury awarded $636,098.00 and reduced the award by 25% for Patricia’s comparative negligence to a net of $477,073.64.
