Anyone who has sustained a sports injury will want to know how much compensation they can expect to receive if they make a claim. Taking a look at the website of the law firm Accident Advice Helpline can help a great deal, as we have a handy calculator which can be used as a guide for the average payout for a sports injury. The actual amount awarded can never be set in stone though, as there are many different factors to be considered.
Did your injury heal fairly quickly? Are you still recovering? Are you able to go to work? Do you need the help of others to carry out your normal daily tasks? All of these factors and more will affect the amount of compensation you receive. Your solicitor and the friendly staff here at Accident Advice Helpline are on hand to explain to you how the compensation is calculated and will be able to tell you more about what you could expect to receive.
Sports injuries can be life changing. With so many sports out there, the fact that some of them can be very dangerous is often overlooked, but there are people who have died as a result of a sports injury. Jockeys, for example, are at risk of falling and being kicked by horses. Racing drivers are in danger of being involved in a crash. Rugby players can easily suffer broken bones during the course of a match. Occasionally, this is the fault of a third party or negligence, and if this is the case then you may have grounds to make a claim.
Making a claim for a sports injury could seem a little daunting at first, but there is nothing to worry about. All the details are taken care of by one of our solicitors, so you do not have to deal with the third party yourself. When you contact Accident Advice Helpline you should have all the information that you need to hand, including the details of the actual accident and any witnesses who saw what happened. Your medical reports will also be essential if you are to pursue a claim, so if you are injured then you need to make sure that you see a doctor, even if your injury does not seem serious at the time. There have been many cases of an injury showing up after the event, so if you begin to have aches and pains a few weeks later you should get them checked out, as they could be related to the accident.
Making a claim for compensation does not have to be an expensive process. With our no win no fee* standard policy, you will not have to pay any upfront costs for the solicitor and we will not give you false hope regarding your claim. Our aim is to achieve the maximum amount of compensation for every claimant, and in the rare event that your claim is unsuccessful, you will not get a bill for legal expenses. Calling us to find out more will cost you nothing and could be very beneficial for you in the long-term.
