Description: I'm posting this for a friend. He wants to make sure that what happened to him at 24 Hour Fitness doesn't happen to anyone else.

A few weeks ago, my friend was working out at the local 24 Hour Fitness and lifting weights. As he was placing a 75lb weight on the ground after finishing his set, his finger got caught between that weight and another which had not been properly stowed and which was laying on the ground beneath his workout area. As a result of this, his finger was completely smashed open, which can clearly be seen from the pictures (which are post-stitches). To top it off, 24 Hour Fitness was not able to provide any sort of medical treatment on-site, and the staff were confused as to what to do. If it were not for the quick thinking of my friend to instruct the staff to call the paramedics immediately, my friend would definitely have had to have his finger amputated.

He would like to find a lawyer to help him:

1) Ensure that 24 Hour Fitness keeps enough staff on-hand at all its locations to properly clear the gym floor and prevent such injuries in the future.
2) Ensure that 24 Hour Fitness keeps medical staff on-hand at all its locations to properly respond to injuries in a timely manner.
3) Recover damages for pain and suffering, as well as on-going medical treatments and future losses suffered over his lifetime from the reduced utility of his hand due to the injury.

Your friend has no claim. His own negligence caused the injury. Additionally, he assumed the risk of injury.
