Squash is known as one of the more intense ball games you could play. It involves the use of squash rackets and a small ball used specifically for this sport. You will probably already know there is a degree of risk whenever you decide to play any type of sport. Injuries can occur for all kinds of reasons but they are usually not down to a degree of negligence on the part of a third party.
If you have suffered any kind of squash injury and it happened in the last three years, you may still wish to seek advice about whether you could get any squash injury compensation. It’s one of those situations where it is definitely worth finding out for sure.
Were you unfortunate or was someone else to blame?
There are all kinds of things that could be true in a situation like this. For example you may find you could simply have been unlucky in sustaining an injury while playing squash. It’s easy to turn an ankle and sustain a sprain for example, without it being the fault of anyone else.
It should also be borne in mind that some accidents can be down to other people. For example, if you went into a squash court to play a game there and the floor was slippery or wet, you would be entitled to try and get squash injury compensation. This is because the owners of the squash courts have a duty to make sure they are always in the best condition and not liable to cause any accidents. Similarly if you rented a racket from the venue and it was not in good condition, causing you to suffer an injury to your arm or hand, this might constitute negligence too.
