    Top injuries when playing wheelchair basketball


    Do you need to make a claim after being injured playing wheelchair basketball? If so, contact Accident Advice Helpline today. We have a great track record when it comes to getting compensation for wheelchair athletes who have come to harm due to no fault of their own. As with any sport, playing wheelchair basketball comes with risks, but this doesn’t mean you’ll be ineligible for compensation if you are hurt due to health and safety rules being broken.

    Claiming if you have an accident whilst playing wheelchair basketball?

    You may be able to claim if you did not receive adequate training or were told to play despite being injured. Compensation may also be paid if the court was not safe. Common injuries you might sustain when playing wheelchair basketball include broken shins, sprained arms and dislocated finger joints. You will normally have three years from the date of the accident to make a claim unless you were a minor when the accident occurred.

    We are waiting to hear from you right now if you do wish to make a claim after being injured on the basketball court whilst in a wheelchair. Compensation can cover all sorts of costs associated with your accident and injuries, including medical expenses, fares to get to the hospital, adjustment made to your home and more. You will need to hand over as much valuable evidence as you can, so please don’t dispose of or delete any photographs, witness contact details or medical receipts related to your accident as these could be exactly what we need to process your compensation claim.

    Making a sports injury claim?

    The amount of compensation you receive can depend on various factors such as the severity of your injuries and how much money you’ve lost or spent because of the accident. At Accident Advice Helpline, we always aim for the maximum amount of compensation possible. You don’t need any money to launch a claim with us as we work on a no-win, no-fee basis.

    Many people choose to take the 30-second test on our website to find out if they are likely to have a case and how much compensation they could be getting. If you’d rather speak to an adviser immediately, this is fine – just call 0800 689 0500 on your landline or 0333 500 0993 if you’re calling from your mobile. Why wait any longer? See if you can claim today.
