    The most bizarre sports injuries


    The history of sport is littered with interesting stories about bizarre sports injuries. Unplanned accidents in sports can cause all sorts of injuries, some of which can have serious consequences.

    The most bizarre sports injuries

    Bizarre sports injuries can range from falling down the stairs all the way to athletes cutting themselves whilst cooking. As with the way with sports and athletes their body is delicate, any injuries can put them out of action making them miss important competitions and games.

    Some of the most bizarre sports injuries are the result of innocent accidents, examples of these are footballers dropping objects on their feet keeping them out of games and tournaments. Other bizarre sports injuries are the result of stupidity which should never be copied. A famous American footballer once set off a firework out of his hand to celebrate Independence Day in 2015, resulting in the loss of his index finger. Not only did this have consequences on his personal life, it also had a serious impact on his professional life.

    When playing sports you need to look at and risk assess your surroundings. Playing football or rugby in a public field is a great way of letting off steam and socialising, but it’s also important you look for any cracks or pot holes in the ground which may cause you to twist your ankle. Playing sports near trees may cause branches to fall and hit you. The smallest of accidents can result in serious consequences.

    If you are playing in a council-owned park or have booked a sports court where you have suffered an injury which was not your fault, you may be eligible for compensation.
