Five potential rugby accident claims

It is clear that rugby is a physical sport, but this does not necessarily mean it is fair to call it overly aggressive. There is always an element of control and respect in the sport, but accidents at work never occur out of malicious intent.

There is a great deal of planning and strategy, but accidents are never planned and whether it be one of those unfortunate slips, trips and falls, or it is one which comes under the category or unavoidable road traffic accidents, or another injury of a similar nature, there always needs to be someone who can provide help.

Here is a list of five potential ways in which you could be involved  in rugby in an accident that may not be your fault:

  1. Concussion due to speed of contact in scrums.
  2. The pitch not being carefully looked after, leading to a slip, trip or fall on a divot or an unsafe area of the playing surface.
  3. Trauma injuries due to collisions, such as fractured bones or dislocated fingers.
  4. Deep muscle bruises or damage to the tendons/overuse injuries causing a slip, trip or fall.
  5. Heavy impact upon tackling and challenging for the ball.
