You may be eligible to make a hockey match injury compensation claim if you feel you have been injured at the match, ask us – “Can I claim for an injury at a hockey match?“. Call Accident Advice Helpline and speak to one of our expert advisors.

Your accident could have been caused by the fast pace of the match, making others less careful about their actions, or by reckless or negligent behaviour affecting you as a player or spectator. If someone else fundamentally caused your accident, it happened in the last three years, and it resulted in an injury requiring medical attention, you could be eligible to claim compensation for it.

Preparing your hockey match injury claim

Prepare your hockey match injury claim by collecting as much information as you can about it. It will be especially helpful if you can show that the accident was not your fault. Document your recollections of what happened and seek out witnesses who can testify for you. It will be helpful to talk to the witnesses beforehand, to check that they have a clear memory of your accident. It has been shown that people can remember things differently, even when they are talking about the same event, so it is crucial you check their recollection. It will also be helpful for others to see the context of your accident by taking photographs of the hockey match grounds or spectators’ area. Focus on the area where your accident happened. Also describe what the person who caused your accident did, whether intentional or not – after all, the result was the same for you. Document what medical help you needed to seek after the accident and any related expenses. You will then be in full possession of the facts when you contact Accident Advice Helpline.

Should I feel guilty about claiming compensation after an injury at a hockey match??

No – you are within your right to claim financial compensation for accidents that were caused by others. Even if the other party did not intentionally mean to harm you, the impact of the accident on your life may be significant. Even if the other party is close to you, you may be experiencing substantial stress or physical pain which may be impacting on your ability to lead a normal life. Your injury may have led to prolonged medical help, which may be only partially covered by the NHS. High medical expenses may add to the worry of not being able to work because of your accident. As these examples show, you have to consider your own circumstances carefully and come to the decision that financial compensation is not only right, but also necessary.

Health and safety regulations are there to prevent an injury at a hockey match

The question can I claim for an injury at a hockey match can relate to injuries caused by the organisers of the hockey match. You may not have been the only person to suffer an injury if the hockey match site was unsafe or badly maintained. The truth is that when you attend a public event, its organisers are legally bound to look after your health and safety. If you can show their negligence or lack of care in hosting the event, you stand a good chance of being able to raise a financial claim for compensation against them.
