    Can you claim for injuries suffered in a marathon?


    When taking part in substantial sporting events, you expect to experience a degree of pain or discomfort, whether during or following the experience. Despite this, in regards to injuries suffered in a marathon, you should have trained adequately to avoid lasting damage to your health and fitness.

    While extensive training will minimise the risk of sustaining sporting injuries, accidents caused by slips, trips and falls, for example, cannot always be accounted for, and as such lead to myriad injuries suffered in a marathon.

    In cases such as these, you may want to uncover whether you can claim for injuries suffered in a marathon.

    Claiming for injuries suffered in a marathon

    When you are running a marathon, if you sustain an injury, and you believe a third party is responsible, you may be able to claim compensation for the harm you have suffered.

    This may be, for example, injuries suffered in a marathon due to poorly maintained areas en route. Alternatively, perhaps, insufficient preparatory training prior to the marathon, in the case that you have employed a personal trainer to help you prepare for the race.
