If you have recently been injured whilst playing or practising tag rugby, you may be asking yourself, ‘Can I claim for an accident while playing tag rugby?’ If this sounds like something you would say and you would like to get your life and your recovery back on track, pick up the phone and give the experts at Accident Advice Helpline a call today.
How do I recognise the risks?
The main difference between tag rugby and conventional rugby is that the former does not involve any physical contact. Instead, players wear Velcro tags on their clothing, which opponents must attempt to remove in order to score points. Whilst this may be a non-contact sport, there are still ways in which it can end in accidents and injuries.
For instance, if practice environments (sports halls and sports pitches) are not kept properly maintained, there is an increased risk of injury to the feet and limbs. If a sports field is not kept free from litter and other debris, the individual or organisation responsible for the safety of the pitch could be at fault for both the injury and everything else that happens as a result.
How do I avoid the risks?
If you want to avoid a nasty tag rugby related injury, you must be fully aware of the relevant safety guidelines. This means that you understand the rules of the game and understand the fact that there is no physical contact allowed. You must wear the right equipment, attend all safety meetings and inductions and never take unnecessary risks.
If you are still unlucky enough to suffer an injury, despite fulfilling all of these criteria, it may be that your accident is the fault of negligence at the hands of a third party. As physical trauma can be a very serious thing, this may lead to the need for further professional advice and even tag rugby accident counselling.
