Like any exercise, participants of jujitsu must accept there is always a risk of injuries in this sport. However, in some circumstances, you may experience an injury that is not your fault, but the fault of someone else, whether it’s another participant or a person in a position of authority.
All sports carry the risk of injury
Common injuries associated with jujitsu include bruises and torn ligaments, while more serious accidents can include dislocations, toe drags or lacerations. To minimise the risk of injuries and slips, trips and falls, jujitsu participants are required to wear special equipment such as wrestling shoes, a mouth guard, wraps and ear guards.
Jujitsu participants are advised to maintain good hygiene to prevent skin conditions affecting scratches, rashes and other areas of the skin. Defer a class if you feel unwell and do not practice jujitsu without a qualified instructor to supervise you.
Don’t forget to make a claim for an accident that wasn’t your fault
If you have experienced a jujitsu injury caused by damaged equipment or inadequate protection, you could claim for financial compensation. Likewise, you may also be able to get compensation for many other types of no-fault injuries and slips and trips, such as accidents at work or a repetitive injury strain claim involving industrial machinery. You have nothing to lose by contacting us, so don’t hesitate to call us to find out if could make a claim.
