New York court finds that a Fitness Club Member Assumed the Risk of Injury
New York state trial court has granted the summary judgment motion of a fitness club company
Gayle Levy was working with a personal trainer on November 24, 2008 when she fell off of a bosu ball and sustained a wrist fracture. Levy was required to undergo surgery to have a plate and screws inserted into her wrist.
She ultimately sued Town Sports International, Inc. for negligence. Shortly thereafter, TSI moved for summary judgment, claiming that Levy assumed all the risks associated with the workouts she performed while at TSI's facility.
