Pritzker Hageman Files First Lawsuit in Legionnaires' Disease Outbreak at Onelife Fitness in Alpharetta, GA

ALPHARETTA, Ga., Jan. 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The water safety lawyers at Pritzker Hageman law firm filed the first lawsuit arising from a Legionnaires’ disease outbreak at Onelife Fitness in Alpharetta, Ga (court file number 22-C-00069-S4). Georgia state health officials began an outbreak investigation after receiving several reports of Legionella infections among people who visited the gym between October 30, 2021, and October 31, 2021.

Our client contracted Legionnaires’ disease after visiting Onelife Fitness on October 30, 2021, and October 31, 2021, where he was exposed to the gym’s water and air quality system components, including the pool, hot tub, sauna, and showers. Our client experienced symptoms from the Legionella infection so severe that he was hospitalized for several days. During their outbreak investigation, health officials confirmed that our client was exposed to Legionella bacteria at Onelife Fitness.

What is Legionnaires’ Disease?

Legionnaires’ disease is a severe and sometimes fatal form of pneumonia caused by the inhalation of Legionella bacteria. Common symptoms of Legionnaires’ disease can include:

  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • High fever
  • Muscle aches
  • Headaches

Legionella bacteria grow and multiply in warm water environments and outbreaks are commonly associated with large or complex water and HVAC systems, like those found in gyms. The most common source of Legionnaires’ disease outbreaks includes the following:

  • Hot tubs
  • Pools
  • Showerheads
  • Sink faucets
  • HVAC equipment

Water management plans are the industry standard for preventing overgrowth of Legionella bacteria. By failing to follow or implement a water management plan, negligent companies put people at risk for inhaling dangerous Legionella bacteria.

Attorney Ray Trueblood says, “No one goes to the gym to contract a deadly disease. Most gyms keep their hot tubs, potable water systems, and other equipment free of Legionella contamination. They keep their patrons safe. The question is, why didn’t Onelife?”
