It seems like jogging is becoming more popular than ever before, with busy city workers hitting the pavements in the early hours or taking to the roads after work to go jogging. It’s a great way to keep fit, but it’s important to warm up before you start, to reduce your risk of injury. What about if you’re injured whilst jogging through no fault of your own? If somebody else is to blame for your accident, you could contact Accident Advice Helpline to make a claim for personal injury compensation. There are no upfront fees to pay – that’s because our personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee basis. So you can afford to claim even if you’ve just spent all your wages on those new running shoes.
How have you been injured?
Whilst you could easily suffer sports injuries such as knee injuries and ankle injuries whilst jogging, it’s accidents that are caused by other people that we are talking about. For example, you could trip on a damaged pavement or kerb whilst jogging and fall, hitting your head on the pavement and suffering serious injuries. Injuries you could sustain while jogging could be as minor as cuts and bruises, or you could suffer broken bones, head and facial injuries that leave you hospitalised and needing to take time off work. Your local council could be held liable for your accident, as it’s their responsibility to ensure roads and pavements in your area are well maintained and safe to use.
You could be injured by faulty gear – for example, those new running shoes you bought could give way underneath you, leading to a sprained or broken ankle that could put you out of action for at least a few weeks. Accident Advice Helpline has helped hundreds of fitness fanatics to claim compensation after a jogging accident, so why not let us help you too? We’ve been in the industry since 2000, and have received an endorsement from our patron, TV personality Dame Esther Rantzen.
