School sports are an important part of the learning process. They help show kids how important it is to keep fit and to try all manner of different sports. Many of us found out what our favourite sports were during our school years, and perhaps continued playing them into adulthood as well. Many kids who take part in school sports events will get through them unscathed. However in some isolated cases school sports leg injuries might occur.
In many instances no one is to blame for these things. Accidents can and do happen and when they do it doesn’t mean the finger of blame can or should be pointed at anyone. But if your child suffers school sports leg injuries of some kind, it is only right to consider what happened.
How can such injuries occur?
There are all kinds of ways a child might injure their leg in a sporting event or lesson. For example a tackle in rugby might lead to a broken leg. An athletics event might see a child sustain a leg injury if they trip or fall on the track. These are just a couple of examples – all kinds of other things could happen as well.
Accident Advice Helpline will always consider the circumstances surrounding the incident so we can determine whether negligence played any part in it. For example the athletics track may not be fit for purpose and it could be uneven, raising the chances of pupils tripping or falling as they use it. The school may potentially not have taken every possible step to protect children while playing rugby, a contact sport that can result in injuries if safety measures are not in place.
Finding out how your child’s injury occurred
Obviously it is important to have as many facts as possible when finding out how your child was hurt. There are some cases where people have been negligent and when there is proof of this it is possible to consider whether compensation could be payable as a result of the injuries.
Make sure you get the answers if your child has received leg injuries of some kind. Accident Advice Helpline is available now on 0800 689 0500. This is our free enquiry line and it is your first port of call when you need no-obligation legal advice. Doesn’t it make sense to call us today?
