    How to claim racquetball injury compensation


    Racquetball is a fast sport played with a racquet and a small ball made from rubber that is typically hollow. The racquet itself has a short handle and a large head, shaped very differently from a squash or tennis racquet head. It is similar to squash in that there is no net and no need for the players to stand opposite each other. The rules are slightly different though and you can hit the ball wherever you like in order to complete your shot and keep the game going.

    Playing racquetball is not for the faint-hearted. You have to have fast reflexes and a good level of fitness is also required. However, these elements will not always save you from experiencing an injury. While most injuries are simple accidents or bad luck, some may be caused by negligence.

    How does negligence make a difference?

    If you suffer an injury caused by another individual, you have a right to claim racquetball injury compensation. For instance you have a right to assume the court you will play in is safe and well maintained. If this is not true, and you experience an injury – perhaps because the floor has been mopped and is still wet, for example – this might lead to a racquetball injury compensation claim.

    If you are trying the sport for the first time and you have sought the advice of a tutor to help you, they should be qualified in giving advice and teaching people how to play the sport as safely as possible. On rare occasions some individuals are taught by people who are not qualified or safe to work in that position. This may increase the chances of an injury occurring, because the individual learning the sport does things wrong without realising.

    Considering the claims process

    It is reasonable enough to want to find out more about claiming compensation if you have suffered an injury while playing racquetball. A professional compensation lawyer will be able to listen to what happened and consider all the facts so they can work out whether there is a chance of making a no win, no fee* claim for recompense on your behalf.
