    Claiming compensation for a football match injury


    Football can be an aggressive sport and it is likely that minor injuries will be sustained during play. As it is a contact sport, many players are likely to come off the pitch with some bruises, a few bumps and some scrapes. At any friendly game, this is unlikely to be an issue for anyone but, if the injury is more serious, things change. Rough tackles, intentional violence or recklessness can change a friendly game into something else and injuries which are inflicted intentionally can cause pain and suffering to a player. Some injuries could effectively end a person’s football career or hobby which can be life-changing for the victim. Should you have played football and suffered an injury which was delivered with malicious intent or a player acted recklessly, you may be entitled to compensation. If you are thinking of claiming compensation for a football match injury, you should obtain some solid legal advice from a reputable law firm like Accident Advice Helpline.

    How to begin your claim

    Claiming compensation for a football match injury begins with a phone call. You can call Accident Advice Helpline to determine how successful your claim is likely to be and we can advise you on what evidence you will need to support your case. If the injury has ended your career in football, you may be entitled to a larger payout due to the financial repercussions of the incident.
