    Claims advice: Sunday league football injuries


    Sunday league football should be all about spending time with friends and team mates, enjoying a kick about and aiming for good results, so the last thing you want is to end up nursing Sunday league football injuries and taking time off work following slips, trips and falls.

    If you’ve suffered Sunday league football injuries, and you weren’t to blame, Accident Advice Helpline could help you to claim compensation.

    Common Sunday league football injuries

    Football is the UK’s most popular sport with thousands of players of all ages and abilities taking part in games every weekend. Football is exciting and fast-paced and consequently, it often comes with a risk of injuries. Common examples of football accidents and injuries include:

    • fractures and dislocations, which may result from landing awkwardly or falling
    • ligament damage, strains and sprains, which may happen following a tackle, losing your balance or slipping
    • head injuries, which may be caused by a collision in the box following a free kick or corner
    • cuts and grazes, which may be caused by slips and trips

    How can I claim compensation for Sunday league football injuries?

    If you’ve been injured in a public place, such as leisure centre or a sports complex, and you were not at fault, you may be eligible to claim public liability compensation. If you have evidence to support your case and you can demonstrate that you were not to blame, Accident Advice Helpline could help you to claim personal injury compensation.

    If the incident happened within the last three years and you were injured as a result of somebody else’s negligence, you deserve to be compensated. Examples of cases, which may warrant compensation, include injuries caused by a reckless tackle and those sustained as a result of poor playing conditions or unsafe equipment.
