Rugby is by its very nature a contact sport. It is a sport where tackles are undertaken in order to try and get hold of the ball for your team. Not all schools have rugby in their list of sports, but those that do should ensure they take every conceivable precaution to keep pupils safe.
School rugby injuries can be quite serious in some instances, particularly because of the tackles. It is estimated that around two-thirds of injuries caused during rugby at any level occur during this part of the game. In some cases children can potentially receive neck and back injuries that could have profound consequences on them. If such injuries occur it is reasonable enough to consider whether any steps may have been taken that could potentially prevented the accident from occurring in the first place.
Different types of school rugby injuries
There are all kinds of things that can potentially happen during a game of rugby. For example concussion and other related head injuries may occur. Neck injuries and back injuries sustained during a tackle are also among the more potentially serious things that might happen. In other cases ligament tears and fractures are among the more common injuries that could potentially happen.
Clearly parents do worry about the well-being of their kids at all times. However, it is important to note that some instances of injuries during school sports could have been prevented. When you are unsure whether or not this applied in your child’s case, seeking advice from a professional company such as Accident Advice Helpline is a good idea.
Recovering from rugby injuries
Recovery can take some time if the injury is particularly severe and will depend on the exact nature of the injury and how serious it was. But if someone else caused your child’s school rugby injuries, it is only fair that they be compensated for the suffering they are having to endure.
