Requiring athletes to partake in running, jumping and throwing, track and field accidents vary vastly in nature and severity.
While slips, trips and falls are, of course, common track and field accidents, an awareness of potential sport-specific injuries can help minimise the risk of experiencing further track and field accidents.
What are the common track and field accidents?
Considering the variation of sporting activities, running, jumping and throwing, track and field accidents relate to a multitude of potential risk factors.
As well as injuries caused by trips and falls, some of the more common track and field accidents include, but are not limited to:
- Ruptured Achilles Tendon
- Back strains
- Bulging disc
- Calf muscle tear
- Golfer’s elbow
- Ankle sprain or fracture
- Rotator Cuff Syndrome
Placing blame for track and field accidents
Whether you compete in track and field professionally, or you enjoy the sports as a pastime, if you have experienced track and field accidents and believe you were not to blame, you may be able to claim personal injury compensation for the harm you have suffered.
From trips due to unmaintained sports facilities to inadequate coaching, no matter the nature of your claim, so long as the accident occurred within the last three years and you are able to provide both medical documentation and evidence to suggest liability, you could be eligible to claim.
