    How to claim jogging injury compensation


    Every day thousands of people fit jogging into their daily life. Most people do it purely for the exercise, but for some it is a great way of getting out and about and getting some fresh air. Some will hit the pavements while others will head to their local parks to exercise, running across grass and paths as well as concrete.

    In every case though, you wouldn’t expect to return home with an injury if you went out jogging. Injuries can occur and most of the time they are due to wearing the wrong footwear or overdoing it without warming up. However, this isn’t the case when someone trips or falls as a result of negligence.

    How can negligence cause injuries?

    That’s a good question. The answer is that the surface you are running on should be in good condition for everyone to use, not just joggers. For instance, you could be in the local park, running round its perimeter using the paths provided, and you could trip and fall because of a pothole in the path you didn’t see. This might point to negligence on the part of park management, which has a duty to make sure the park is maintained at all times.

    Injuries from jogging can vary, but things like sprained ankles are perhaps more common than other injuries might be. If you take a tumble you might also damage one or both hands or wrists, and that could also keep you from exercising for a good while.

    Could Accident Advice Helpline be in a position to help you?

    When you suffer an accident while jogging, jogging injury compensation may not be the first thing you think of. However you might find you are hurt and cannot jog for a while, or do a range of other things either.
