If you have ever been injured due to someone’s failure to maintain massage tables in a professional and safe manner, then you might have a case against the person. If you do feel that you were the victim of negligence when it comes to a massage table, perhaps you should consider filing a massage heights lawsuit against the negligent party. In fact, it is best that you do contact a qualified massage therapy attorney so that he/she will know how to best present your case. It is important to point out though, that in almost all states there is no statute of limitations on this type of case.
You probably did not know that most massage tables come with an adjustable height feature. It is not very uncommon to be able to adjust the height of these tables from six to forty-six inches. This height adjustment feature is often referred to as the chair height or the console height. The reason why this table height adjustment is so important is because of the fact that a lot of accidents occur on the job that results in an injury of some sort resulting from a worker being unable to adjust the table height. When you adjust the table to a lower height than you are comfortable with, you run the risk of falling off the table.
In the same way, if you are working in a position where you are likely to fall once you are on the table, then it would be preferable for you to avoid using height adjustment features on your tables. One reason why you should not use height adjustment features is because it could easily lead to the likelihood of an accident occurring. In many instances where employees are falling off of massage tables, they simply slide down instead of falling off the table. When this happens, they will most likely run into a wall or other obstruction, which may result in them being pinned underneath the obstruction. This could result in a serious injury or even death.
As you can see, lawsuits such as the one filed against Global Health & Fitness (GHF) can have a huge impact on businesses. First, workers are injured when they do not make the appropriate adjustments to their height while working. Second, because height is one of the main factors used in the massage tables in order to provide a more accurate massage to a client, workers are more likely to fall off than they otherwise would. If you have employees that work in a situation where they are on massage tables that are at a higher elevation, you should know that it can lead to serious injuries and even death. This is why it is imperative that you familiarize yourself with the height adjustment features of all of your massage tables.
On the flip side, there are also some legitimate reasons that height adjustment should not be avoided by any means. If you have massage tables that are adjustable in height but you choose not to use them, then you are taking a risk that someone could trip over on them. It is much more likely that they will hit the floor when they try to move a table lower than they were intended to go. This could result in serious injuries resulting from them tripping over and striking their head on the ground.
As you can see, there are both advantages and disadvantages of having height adjustment features in massage tables. Some people will not make the adjustment, while others will. Knowing your options is important when you are considering purchasing one of these tables for your practice. However, if you determine that you can benefit from having this kind of feature, then you should purchase it immediately. If you wait too long, you may end up getting into a lawsuit because of someone slipping on a low table.
