Being a martial arts teacher will undoubtedly carry risks that might lead to the question, “can I claim for an injury as a martial arts teacher?” Sustaining injuries is probably inherent in an occupation such as this but, as with any other job, the conditions in which you work should be specially adapted and managed to reduce the potential for injury or harm.
People may think of martial arts teachers as being able to take an injury or two, shrug them off and continue to work. The view that a martial arts teacher is less inclined or indeed incapable of being injured just because they are physically fit and an expert in combat is without merit. Every person, irrespective of their physical and mental strength, has the potential to suffer a troublesome or serious injury that can impact upon their daily life and their ability to work.
If you are a martial arts teacher and have suffered an injury in circumstances for which you were not responsible, a call to Accident Advice Helpline will enable your claim to be assessed and processed by one of our in-house solicitors who are experts in compensation claims for injuries sustained at work. The injuries sustained may not have resulted from direct teaching; there is a raft of health and safety measures that need to be in place in order for a martial arts teacher to carry out his or her role safely. Within this field there is a history of incidents where badly worn safety matting and inadequate protective equipment have been known to cause serious, long-standing injuries.
If you believe you have grounds for a compensation claim, calling Accident Advice Helpline will ensure you receive guidance and direction from trained and experienced claims representatives who are experts within your field of operation. All work undertaken is on a no win, no fee* basis with our highly-trained team working to secure the highest level of compensation for each and every client. Providing our legal experts with a detailed account of your injuries and the circumstances in which they were received is crucial in building up a strong claim. Photographs of injuries, doctors’ letters and evidence of inability to work will all assist greatly in the claims process.
