Many of us have seen tennis players of the highest calibre receive treatment on court for injuries that can potentially jeopardise their position in the match they are playing. However, these injuries can be caused by the play and how the tennis players move around the court, as well as through repetitive use of certain joints. For most of us the prospect of injury may not occur at all because we are not in the same league as these players.
There are occasions when tennis accidents may potentially occur. This might be potentially more likely if the tennis court we are playing on is not in the best condition. For example it might be that the surface is worn and perhaps uneven, and has not been maintained as it should have been. There could be potential hazards at the sides of the court that someone may trip or fall over if they run in that direction while playing a shot.
Examples of tennis accidents and injuries
Injuries could occur in the situations mentioned above if players cannot prevent themselves from hitting or coming into contact with an obstacle. For example they may have to try and break their fall and could hurt their wrists or hands in the process. In other situations they may end up suffering from ankle injuries if they trip over a potential hazard or slide over on the court.
In any case, consulting a company such as Accident Advice Helpline is a good move to make. It can be difficult to work out who was to blame for tennis accidents. This means that proper legal advice can make the world of difference in these situations.
Recovering from injuries
Injuries suffered while playing tennis can affect you in other parts of your life as well. For example a broken ankle will clearly have you off your feet in the normal manner for some time. You may not be able to work. If this has occurred as a result of negligence on the tennis court in terms of maintenance or a hazard being in the way, you may be able to make a claim.
