When Physical Fitness Leads to Physical Problems

Posted on Feb 14, 2013 By Mark Leeds

Most of us have seen the disclaimers that follow discussions of any exercise programs or diets to please consult a physician before beginning any new exercise regimen or diet. The reason for the warning is that changes in physical activity or diet can bring about physical changes that can result in serious health issues. For example, the increase in physical activity that working out in a gym generates can lead to a heart attack in some people. That is why all gyms and other exercise facilities should have an automated external defibrillator (AED) on hand. If your loved one died after having a heart attack at the gym and there was no AED available, your personal injury lawyer in Portland may advise filing a wrongful death suit.

The proof of the benefits of AEDs continues to grow, and research is showing that AEDs are extremely successful in preventing injury to the heart or even death when properly used by trained personnel in a business environment. Given the propensity for gym workouts to lead to heart attacks or other heart issues in certain patients, it behooves any gym or exercise-related business in the Portland area to have an AED on hand and to have trained at least some of their employees in the proper operation of the AED device.

If the loss of your loved one resulted from the negligence of a gym that failed to provide adequate training for its employees in the use of an AED or simply failed in its responsibility to have an AED on the premises, contact personal injury lawyer Mark J. Leeds in Portland. Mr. Leeds will compassionately listen to you and advise you with regard to obtaining any justice you may be due in the wrongful death of your loved one.
