Sports related injuries
Sports coaches provide advice and instructions to children and adults alike and can be a vital factor in the development of a team and their results. Injuries to sports coaches are rare but they can be serious depending on the circumstances.
You could make a claim if the field or court you were coaching on was uneven, unsafe, or not maintained properly. This could have resulted in you suffering a broken leg after falling, or other physical injuries. The owner of the premises or field you are coaching on will be liable if they failed to adhere to health and safety measures.
You could also file a claim if you were coaching at a local sports centre or youth club and fell on a wet surface, or tripped over an object or structure that should have been flagged as a hazard by staff on site. If you think that another person or organisation could have prevented your injuries, then we can make a claim on your behalf. There are no costs to pay upfront, so there are no risks involved. Use our free 24-hour helpline to find out how we can assist you with your compensation claim.
You will be need to have been treated by a medical professional for your injuries in order to make a claim, and a diagnosis must have been filed and recorded. We recommend that you write down any information you can remember about the accident, and get in touch with witnesses to support your claim.
A claim will cover the costs associated with your injuries. These will include general damages that relate to how much time it has taken you to recover, and how it has affected your daily life. Claiming for special damages will cover any financial costs such as medical fees and lost income.
