24 Hour Fitness - Failure to Properly Handle Injury Claim.
SANTA CLARITA, CALIFORNIA -- July 2011 Defective exercise machine casued damage to my right hand. After filling out accident report I never heard from 24 Hour Fitness management. It took me 3 months to finally get a phone number where someone would listen. Almost 2 years of back and forth, faxing documents. It was always to what I believed to be their insurance company but Insurance commission informed me that 24 hour is self insured.
I finally went to small claims court in November 2012 and won my case before a judge. Was it over? No sir. As usual never heard from them and finally with some persistence I was contacted by someone who said they needed a release but she would be gone for a week. 24 Hour Fitness has one policy "don't pay anyone even if they win". Their treatment of me is just one of thousands of the same type of cases. Their Risk Management is a joke.
