A broken arm can occur in all kinds of ways. You might fall and land heavily and awkwardly, thus breaking one of the bones in your arm as you do so. You might be struck by a vehicle or knocked down by a motorcyclist. You could even get your arm trapped in a door or in machinery. But for other people with a broken arm, football is the culprit, or perhaps another sport.
Football is a sport, in which players can come into close contact with each other. This means there is a chance of the odd fall or accident occurring. However, most people who play football will never have any injuries like this.
Can a broken arm playing football be prevented?
In most cases, players are perfectly safe from such injuries when they are playing football. The people in charge of the ground on which the games are played are responsible for health and safety issues. This means they must risk-assess the ground and the pitch to determine whether any hazards are present that should be rectified.
So, if you end up with a broken arm playing football, you should find out whether it might reasonably have been prevented. If you suspect negligence, you may have a right to make a claim to see if you could receive any compensation for the injury and the pain and suffering you went through.
