My question involves an injury that occurred in the state of: MASSACHUSETTS
Hired Personal Trainer for my daughter. Told trainer that she had ACL surgery in High School so no Hi Impact. Trainer wanted her to do box jumps. Daughter told her Dr. told her she should not do those or anything high impact.. Trainer said yes she could, no pain, no gain, it will build strength, etc. She went ahead and did them. Tore her knee miniscus and had to have surgery to have it removed. Now between surgery, and rehab she is having to pay over 3k in bills, cannot do pool aerobics and low impact aerobics which she did weekly anymore, and has had to give up scuba diving which was a passion.
We never had a contract with this trainer. She was basically a trainer from a local franchise gym that we hired to come to our home for $500 for 10 sessions. Paid cash, no receipts.
The trainer has not responded to our requests for insurance information. I checked on Personal Training Liability and it is only about $100-120 a year.
