    How to claim sports lesson injury compensation


    Attending school gives us the chance to learn lots of different things. For example we can learn about all manner of different sports, giving us the chance to develop skills in the areas we are particularly keen on. From netball to football and tennis to gym skills, it is easy to see where skills can be developed that we might enjoy in future years.

    Sports lessons should always be provided to children of all ages with safety in mind. Every class should be risk-assessed prior to it taking place. This might involve assessing the gym, the sports field or the court to see whether it is safe to use. Potential hazards can be spotted and resolved long before there is ever a chance for anyone to be injured.

    How could injuries occur in school sports lessons?

    Injuries can potentially happen in various ways. For example, if children aren’t careful and given plenty of room to practise their sports, they could injure someone else near them. This has occurred during javelin lessons in the past. The equipment used should be fit for purpose as well. In another example, the playing field, court or gym should also be in good condition and free from any deficiencies or hazards that could cause injury.

    If a child is hurt during a sports lesson and it is discovered someone was negligent in allowing this to happen, this could lead to sports lesson injury compensation. For this to be a possibility, the facts of the situation must all come to light, so a lawyer can determine how likely it is that compensation could be paid.

    Could you claim sports lesson injury compensation for your child?

    To find out whether you could make this type of claim, you should contact a lawyer who has experience in this particular area. Make sure you get in touch via Accident Advice Helpline, since we employ a wide range of lawyers who have successfully dealt with all kinds of compensation claims in the past.
