Doubles, singles or practising your serve, spending time on a tennis court is not only good for your fitness levels, it’s also a great way to improve your game! The last thing on your mind as you reach for your tennis racket is the possibility of being injured on a tennis court; surely there are more dangerous sports to play? Whilst that’s true, you could be injured whilst playing tennis, and if this has happened to you, did you ever stop to think about making a tennis court injury compensation claim?
So how could you be injured whilst playing tennis?
Well, you could be injured by another player – for example if you’re hit in the face by a ball or their racket. But by far the most common type of accident that Accident Advice Helpline has handled tennis court injury compensation claims for is slip, trip and fall accidents. For example, you could trip on a damaged court or slip on something which has been spilt on the court. You could even be injured in the changing rooms if things have been left lying around on the floor.
Tennis court injuries could include strains and sprains, broken bones, facial and head injuries (or eye injuries) and back injuries. You’d be surprised how many people suffer back injuries after a slip or trip accident. Back injuries can cause ongoing pain and be difficult to treat, taking a long time to heal. So you could find that your doubles game has left you taking time off work, affecting your earnings. Don’t worry though as Accident Advice Helpline will take this into account when we work out your personal injury settlement – and our professional lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis.
Whatever the score at the end of the match, you don’t deserve to come away with minor or serious injuries, but if you’re wondering who is liable after your accident, you’ll need to get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline. We’ll listen to what has happened and offer you confidential, no-obligation advice, however you’ve been injured. It could be that another player is responsible for your injuries or the tennis court owners could be held responsible.
