Many of us enjoy playing sport but while exercising offers a host of benefits for physical health and mental wellbeing, it can also pose risks. If you suffer a severe injury playing club sport or you’ve been injured after a slip, trip or fall at a sports club or municipal leisure centre, you may wish to claim public liability compensation.
If you suffer a severe injury playing club sport, who is liable?
If you’re a keen sports player and you suffer a severe injury playing club sport, you may be thinking about making a claim for personal injury compensation, but who is liable and what does the claims process entail?
In the case of sports injuries, liability can be a complex issue. In some cases, individuals must take responsibility for their own actions and the nature of the activity and the severity of the injury will be taken into account when deciding whether a personal injury claim is successful or not. When players represent a club on a professional or semi-professional contract, employer liability may come into action in the event of one player injuring an opponent or a player sustaining an injury as a result of using defective equipment or suffering an accident, such as a slip or trip, at a facility owned by the employer.
