Legionnaires’ Disease Outbreak Discovered at OneLife Fitness in Alpharetta, Georgia

Feb. 1, 2022

There are multiple people whose illnesses have been traced to the same Onelife Fitness gym before becoming sick

Water safety lawyers at Pritzker Hageman law firm filed the first lawsuit arising from a Legionnaires' disease outbreak at Onelife Fitness in Alpharetta, Georgia.

According to the law firm, Georgia state health officials began an outbreak investigation after several reports of Legionella infections among frequenters of the gym between Oct. 30, 2021, and Oct. 31, 2021.

“Our client contracted Legionnaires' disease after visiting Onelife Fitness on Oct. 30, 2021, and Oct. 31, 2021, where he was exposed to the gym's water and air quality system components, including the pool, hot tub, sauna, and showers,” stated the firm. “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.”

There are multiple people whose illnesses have been traced to the same Onelife Fitness gym before becoming sick, according to the firm. Additional lawsuits are expected.

Additionally, attorneys on Pritzker Hageman’s water safety legal team are conducting an investigation of their own.

"No one goes to the gym to contract a deadly disease,” said Attorney Ray Trueblood. “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?"

The law firm adds that if you have visited One Life Fitness and have been diagnosed with Legionnaires’ disease, Pontiac Fever, or have had a family member who has been sickened or died from Legionella exposure, to contact its attorneys on the Legionnaires disease legal team for a free legal consultation about your case.
