Motorsports are inherently dangerous. Here are some of the most common motorsport injuries participants and even spectators may sustain.
Common motorsport injuries
Motorsport accidents can affect both participants and spectators. The most common motorsport injuries include:
- Back, spine and neck injuries
- Nerve damage
- Broken bones
- Muscle and tissue damage
Lacerations are also comparatively common injuries in motorsport-related accidents.
Physical injuries are, however, not the only possible consequences of accidents at motorsport events. Many victims also reported:
- Anxiety, depression or irritability
- Difficulty in concentrating, distraction and insomnia
- Emotional trauma (like flashbacks or nightmares, for instance)
If you suffered an injury in a motorsport accident caused by someone else, you could be entitled to make a personal injury claim. In this case, any psychological or emotional effects of your injury would also be taken into consideration.
Accident Advice Helpline
Our nationwide legal team has been helping people injured at motoring events get compensation for their motorsport injuries for over 16 years. Boasting an impressive success record, our in-house solicitors can help you:
- Establish who was responsible for your accidental injury – and subsequently liable to pay you compensation
- Assess what you can claim for – physical injury, emotional/psychological effects, expenses incurred because of your injury, loss of earnings, and so on
- Gather evidence necessary to support your claim
Capable of conducting most claim processes over the phone, we can make sure you get the maximum compensation possible for your personal injuries efficiently and quickly.
In many cases, our solicitors can negotiate settlements without claimants having to go to court. We cannot, however, promise this, as every case is different. This difference in circumstances also makes it impossible for us to predict with precision:
- How much compensation you will ultimately be awarded
- How long it will take to settle your claim
Any prediction we may make will be a rough estimate based on similar cases we have dealt with in the past.
Cost of claiming
Our solicitors invariably operate under conditional fee agreements. This means you do not have to worry about how much it will cost you to claim for compensation. Any legal fees and other expenses we incur during the claim process will be covered by a percentage of your compensation, which will be deducted from the total you are awarded once your claim has been brought to conclusion.
To learn more about claiming and/or initiate a claim, call 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a UK landline or mobile today. You can also take our 30-second online test to determine the weight of your claim.
