Is there someone or an entity to blame for your injuries? If so, conact a personal injury attorney to discuss your options.
In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but insted need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice. If you want to be completely sure of your rights, you must sit down with an experienced criminal defense attorney to be fully aware of your rights.
There are many more facts that would have to be considered as to whether you might be able to make a claim. Consult with a personal injury attorney (consultations are typically free). Hope this helps & best of luck.
You may have a claim depending on what specifically caused your injury. There must be some sort of fault on the part of the gym and/or instructor. Keep in mind too that most gyms make you sign a waiver of liability which could prevent someone from suing them (depending on the language). Speak to an attorney.

More information is needed, but usually with a serious injury such as yours, if you can prove negligence and causation, then there is a possibility for recovery. Contact a personal injury attorney for consultation.
I am sorry for your accident, but unfortuantely, you probably filed a waiver/release of responsiblity when you signed up with the ftiness club or class. First see if you did. If so, take that release to a personal injury lawyer to see if it will prevent your claim. If not, then tell me why the fitness class instructor was negligent which caused your injuries. Without negligence on the gym's part, no case
Just because you were injured does not mean someone has to pay your bills or compensate you. Exercise, walking, riding a bike, etc. are all activities that involve some type of risk. No risk, no reward. I suggest you seek excellent medical care, get better, and find a low impact exercise that you like, such as swimming, and develop a passion for that sport. Good luck!
You probably filed a waiver/release of responsiblity when you signed up with the ftiness club or class. If you did sign a waiver or release, take that release to a personal injury lawyer to see if it is beatable. If you did not file a waiver/ release, then you will need to be able to explain how the fitness class instructor was negligent in a way that caused your injuries. Without negligence on the instructor or gym's part, you will not have a claim.
