Handball is a sport that first came into being in the 19th century. As the name suggests, the players use their hands to pass the ball between themselves with the aim of scoring goals. There are seven players in each of two teams, one of which will be the goalkeeper on each side.
While there are lots of rules surrounding the game, one of the best ways to learn how to play it is to actually give it a go. You can join a sports centre that offers handball as an option, or another local group that provides a chance to play it.
All sports carry a certain degree of risk with them whenever you play. However, there are situations where you could be injured through no fault of your own, however careful you might try to be. For instance, if the court used to play the game is not in good condition it could cause you to slip over and injure yourself. If the owners are found negligent in their maintenance of the court, you might have a chance to make a handball injury compensation claim.
It might also be possible to claim if you can prove one of the other players was not playing according to the rules. If this is the case and their actions led to your injuries being sustained, a professional injury compensation lawyer could be well positioned to argue your case successfully.
