Endsleigh warns Leisure Trusts at risk from personal injury claims
by Brian Turner
A new report published today by Endsleigh, the specialist insurance broker for leisure trusts, warns trusts that they could be liable should a customer injure themselves on a piece of faulty gym equipment.
The report highlights that under the terms agreed between some leisure trusts and companies leasing gym equipment, it is the trust and not the supplier who would be liable to meet the costs brought by an injured customer due to a fault on the part of the manufacturer.
Endsleigh warns that costs could end up being in the tens of thousands of pounds and recommends leisure trusts review their existing contracts instead of purely relying on their products liability insurance to cover them.
