Are you wondering what the main injuries in lacrosse are? Then read on. At Accident Advice Helpline, we have vast experience when it comes to helping people claim for lacrosse-related injuries that weren’t their fault. Let’s take a look at five of the main injuries sustained by people who play lacrosse right now.
- Ankle and knee ligament injuries. These often result from quick dodges and twists
- Broken ribs. Pads for the ribs are not generally used in lacrosse.
- Contusions. Contusions are parts of tissue or skin with ruptured blood capillaries. In lacrosse, they can be caused by the ball, stick and other players.
- Concussion. Though helmets are worn in lacrosse, a concussion can still happen.
- Broken fingers. These often result from sticks hitting the hands.
Lacrosse has even caused deaths from time to time. Many of these deaths have been caused by the balls being hit at great speed. Punctured lungs can occur when players collide with sticks.

We will need you to gather together as much evidence related to your accident and injuries in lacrosse as you can, so please don’t get rid of any photos of your injuries, witness contact details or receipts for medical treatments as these may be exactly what we need to make your claim successful.
