Sports injury compensation claims

When taking part in sports there is always an element of risk and sometimes it is inevitable that you will suffer an injury, particularly when playing contact or risky sports. However, injuries occasionally do happen due to the failure of a third party to take reasonable steps to minimise the risk of an accident occurring.

Our personal injury solicitors are experienced in these types of claims and will work with you to identify who is responsible for your injury and to secure the compensation you need to ensure your injury impacts your day-to-day life as little as possible. If you believe that you have suffered a sports injury due to somebody else’s negligence call our expert team on 0203 816 0065.

 

Types of sports injury claims

You may be able to make a claim for compensation if you are injured due to:

  • A lack of supervision
  • Poor advice or instruction on how to use equipment
  • Faulty equipment
  • Unsafe facilities
  • Inappropriate or unsafe kit
  • Inadequate training
  • Poorly maintained playing areas
  • Intentional injury, for example dangerous tackles

You may also be able to make a claim if you have been injured as a spectator of sport at a stadium or playing ground. It is the responsibility of such venues to ensure that spectators are provided with a safe environment from which they can observe the sport.

Sports injury solicitors

If your injury was preventable and occurred due to the negligence of a third party you may be able to claim compensation. Sports injuries can have a lifelong impact and compensation will be able to provide you with access to the support you need to help you move forward. Our expert team will make the process as simple and straightforward as possible to minimise any further stress to you so that you can focus on your recovery.

If you would like to speak with a member of our personal injury team about making a sports injury compensation claim please call us on 0203 816 0065.
