    Man knocked out in sumo suit

    By David Brown on May 21, 2014

    A man wearing an inflatable sumo wrestler suit knocked himself out during an event in Gloucestershire with his workmates.

    The 40-year-old, from Southampton, reportedly bounced off a colleague, fell backwards and landed on his back and head. He was knocked unconscious for a short period before eventually coming round.

    West Midlands Ambulance Service arrived at Kemerton Park, near Tewkesbury, shortly after the incident occurred at 6pm on Monday 19 May.

    ‘Not fully alert’

    Medics said the man was messing around with a workmate who was also wearing a blow-up sumo outfit.

    The contact with the ground as he was launched backwards was enough to knock him out. He was immobilised and airlifted to Gloucestershire Royal Hospital for further assessment and treatment as a precaution as he was still not fully alert after regaining consciousness.

    He was complaining of pain in his nose, left shoulder and left leg.

    Claiming for a head injury

    Head injuries can vary greatly. They can be anything from bruising or cuts, to a fractured skull and/or injury to the brain.

    If you have had the misfortune to suffer these types of injuries through no fault of your own, then you may be able to make a head injury accident claim.

    Accident Advice Helpline can give you all the support and advice you need in order to make a successful bid for compensation.

    It can also tell you all you need to know about claiming for injuries that occurred in public places.

    The amount of personal injury compensation you receive will depend on the type and severity of the injury.
