Injuries you could sustain from a running accident

There are many injuries you could sustain from a running accident. Running offers a host of psychological and physical benefits but it can also be dangerous. We can find ourselves in tremendous pain if we push ourselves too hard, fail to warm up properly or fall prey to a badly-maintained surface whilst out running. At Accident Advice Helpline, we may be able to help you if you have been hurt whilst out running, due to no fault of your own.

Maybe you tripped, slipped or fell because of a broken kerb or paving slab? Perhaps you came to harm because of a reckless driver? Whatever the case, you can count on us to deliver the exceptional legal representation you need if you were hurt due to someone else’s negligence or recklessness.

A look at some of the injuries you could sustain from a running accident

Knee pain affects many runners. It can be sharp or dull and is one of the most common running injuries. Ice and stretching can help you overcome this kind of injury, though if you are still in pain after 48 hours or so, you may wish to see a doctor. Achilles pain at the back of the heel or ankle is another common complaint. Shin splints can be very dangerous, and the pain could become severe if you continue to run after experiencing the dull pain that often turns out to be a result of shin splints.

If your accident was caused by failing to warm up correctly or wearing the wrong shoes, we may not be able to help you. However, it was resulted from a badly-maintained surface, or you were hit by a reckless driver whilst out running, you may well have a case. At Accident Advice Helpline, we have a great deal of experience when it comes to claims for running injuries. We always assign the right kind of solicitor to our clients, which means the lawyer you work with will have successfully battled for running injury compensation in the past.
