    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Can I claim for an accident I had when playing basketball?


    After being injured, you may be wondering, ‘Can I claim for an accident I had when playing basketball?’ Pursuing a claim might not be an easy decision to make. What if the person responsible for your accident is a personal friend?

    What if you are making a claim against your own team? You might feel that the incident is better left forgotten, brush it all under the carpet and try to carry on as if nothing has happened.

    However, how will you be able to forget about it when you might be in a position where you cannot work as a result? Will you be able to forget about it when the rest of your team is able to go on playing but you have to stop while you recover?

    Will you be able to forget about it when you see that pile of bills that are overdue? If money is not coming in, then you can’t pay the money that has to go out, and this could cause many problems for you and your family.

    How can I change this?

    You should not feel guilty when making a personal injury claim. All sports teams should have liability insurance to cover incidents like this so that you are not left out of pocket for expenses due to an accident.
