Squash is a fast paced sport which is popular to play on your own or with someone else. However, due to the fact it is so fast accidents can and do happen whilst playing it. One of the most common accidents that happens are slips, trips and falls.
How do slips, trips or falls happen whilst playing squash?
There are multiple reasons why you can potentially sustain a slip, trip or fall injury whilst playing this sport. One of the main causes is due to speed of the game. The faster the game the easier it is to sustain a trip or fall injury if you lose concentration even for a brief time. Other reasons why slips, trips and falls occur during could range from the smooth surface of the floor to a collision with your squash partner.
Is the sports centre liable if I sustain a slip, trip or fall whilst playing squash?
In most circumstances where the injury was caused by the other player or simply by loss of concentration then this would not be a fall injury that you could hold the sports centre liable for. However, there will be certain instances where the sports centre would be liable for your slip, trip or fall injury. Any accidents caused by lack of maintenance by the sports centre such as a loose wire, broken flooring or sudden fault with the lighting which could cause a slip, trip or fall injury could be classed as the sports centre’s fault.
Unfortunately in most sports accidents such as slips, trips and falls can and do occur. However, if you have sustained a trip injury or have had any accident within the last 3 years that wasn’t your fault you may be able to make a claim.
