Boxing is a popular spectator sport and there are plenty of amateur enthusiasts at club level dotted throughout the UK. Accident Advice Helpline is a law firm that was established in the year 2000 to handle personal injury claims, and since then we’ve handled dozens of boxing accident claims for compensation. If you’ve had a boxing accident and would like to make a claim, talk to us and see what we can offer you.
Have you had a boxing accident?
The injuries you could sustain from a boxing accident can be nasty, you don’t need us to tell you that. Over the years, health and safety in the ring has been tightened and the safety of boxers has been made paramount, but accidents do still occur unfortunately. Besides injuries received in the ring, we have actually worked with boxers who have suffered accidents while training, so we do take a broad view of what constitutes a boxing accident. Regardless of whether your injuries were moderate or severe, we’re here to help you make a claim.
Who was at fault for your accident?
One of the things we will need to ask you about when you call us, is who was at fault for the accident. You see, you cannot make a claim for your injuries if the accident was your fault, so we need to establish who was liable. The role of the coach in preventing a boxing accident is crucial of course, but you may be claiming against a trainer, an event organiser, a spectator, your opponent or someone else entirely. Just let us know.
There are of course steps to take to prevent a boxing accident, and if these have been missed or neglected, or someone else’s carelessness has contributed to your accident and injuries, you should be claiming against them.
When’s the best time to claim?
As long as you claim within three years of the accident, there’s no ‘best’ time to claim. We suggest that you claim when the treatment for injuries sustained from a boxing accident has been completed, or when you know how your long-term recovery is going to pan out. You can only claim once, so it’s useful to know how the injuries will affect you in the long term.
