Already a major sport in Western Europe and played both outdoors and indoors in the Netherlands, handball is enjoying ever growing popularity in the UK. High speed movement back and forth along a comparatively small court and regular physical contact mean sporting injuries are fairly common.
The most commonly suffered injuries in handball include acute wrist injuries by falling; sprained or twisted ankles; twisted knees and acute elbow injuries. Shoulder dislocations and sprained, dislocated or broken thumbs are also frequently reported. In serious cases, ligaments may be torn, and sometimes there may also be broken limbs or head injuries.
Many of these injuries are caused by slipping, tripping or falling on the court. Others are the result of accidental collisions between players; blocking attempts (typically affecting the throwing arm of the blocked player) and other tackles. Spectators may, by the way, also be injured by slipping or tripping.
Depending on the circumstances surrounding an accidental injury, injured players or spectators may be entitled to make public liability claims. Entitlement is dependent on who caused the accident leading to the injury and when the injury was sustained. In essence, if you were injured by an accident caused by another individual within no more than three years prior to claiming, there is a good chance that you qualify to make a claim.
