Martial arts are a great choice for those who want to keep fit and learn some self-defence skills. Judo is generally considered to be a very safe sport, but like most activities, there’s always a risk of injury. Whether you’re training or competing, it’s important to follow the rules and take steps to avoid injuries. If you’ve been injured at a judo event, and you weren’t at fault, you may be wondering whether you have a case for compensation. If you’d like to find out more and discuss your claim in further detail, Accident Advice Helpline can help.
When is it possible to claim if you’ve been injured at a judo event?
If you’re competing at a judo tournament, you should be aware of the risks associated with the sport. There’s always an element of danger attached to martial arts, and every participant should accept that there is a risk of injury before the event begins. The legislation is there to protect against preventable injuries, but there is a limit to how far the laws of the game can go. If you sustain injuries as a result of your own carelessness, for example, you don’t warm up properly or you use the wrong technique, you can’t then try and claim compensation. Compensation is reserved for those who suffer ill health or an injury as a result of somebody else’s negligence. If you’re injured at a judo event as a result of using faulty equipment or your opponent breaks the rules, for example, this would warrant a viable claim for a judo accident.
