Injuries and treatment
Individuals can suffer a number of different injuries while playing rounders. The game is one which involves high-speed sprinting, as well as almost solid heavy balls travelling at high velocity, which can cause nasty cuts, bruises and in more extreme cases concussions. Head and neck injuries, dislocated joints and broken bones also occur with some frequency as the result of trips or falls.
With any injury it is essential that you get the right treatment as soon after you are injured as possible to get yourself on the road to recovery without delay. Making a full recovery from a sporting injury will often involve physiotherapy from a specialist sports therapist and whilst this treatment is available for free on the NHS, waiting lists are long and the delay can impact the amount of time it takes you get back to normal.
The cost of private physiotherapy can be quite high; however, you should not delay your recovery for financial reasons if at all possible. In cases where the accident you suffered was someone else’s fault, you may be able to make a claim for compensation which will cover the costs of your physiotherapy, as well as other medical expenses and lost income if you are unable to work.
Making a compensation claim
If you think that you may have a legitimate claim for compensation, it is important that you (or a friend or family member) start to collect evidence that will support your claim as soon after the accident as possible. Useful evidence will include statements from people who witnessed the accident and their contact details, and photographs of any unsafe equipment or playing areas.Open Claim Calculator
Additionally, a doctor’s note outlining your specific injuries and referring you to a physiotherapist; any bills you have had to pay for private medical treatment; and proof of loss of earnings will usually be necessary. Generally speaking, the more evidence you have, the better the chances are that your claim will be successful.
