Sports coach accident claim

injured sports coach

You can make a sports coach accident claim with Accident Advice Helpline if you have sustained injuries in an accident while coaching during the last three years. Personal injuries can have a detrimental impact on all areas of your life.

Sitting back and doing nothing is not the best course of action if the accident was due to the negligence of another individual or third party. We can make a claim for you in order to recover the costs associated with your injuries.

Coaching risks

Sports coaches are always at risk of physical injuries due to the nature of their work. Muscle strains and other minor injuries are a common occurrence and are often due to bad luck. However, other factors could contribute to injuries if a third party was negligent in some way. For example, if you were forced to train on a pitch or surface that was dangerous, then you have a right to make a no win, no fee* claim if the surface contributed to your injuries. These injuries can range from broken limbs to a concussion.

If you were coaching indoors, then it is up to the owner to ensure that the building is safe for use. All gymnasiums and other areas should be free from potential hazards and risks. You could make a claim if you were struck by a tile while coaching a youth football team or tripped over equipment that should have been cleared away prior to the coaching session. Sports centre staff have a duty of care to protect people that frequent the premises, so they should have a system in place to carry out maintenance and remove or signpost dangerous surfaces or equipment.

Making a claim is a quick and simple process with Accident Advice Helpline. Our no win, no fee* policy means you do not have to pay anything upfront. This is especially important if a sports coaching injury has had an impact on your ability to earn a living. We have expert solicitors specialised in sports injuries ready to help you.
