Injuries sustained while playing sports are often genuine and truly accidental but, if you think that a third party was to blame for a heavy fall, you could make a volleyball accident claim today. Accident Advice Helpline is a leading personal injury law firm that works on a no win, no fee* basis so you do not have to worry about funding a compensation claim beforehand. If you sustained the injury within the last three years then you may be owed a significant financial sum to cover the losses associated with that injury, perhaps in the form of lost income or medical bills. Call our free, 24-hour helpline to find out if you are eligible.
Volleyball is not a contact sport but your fellow players and opponents still have a reasonable duty of care if they are participating in competitive team activities. You could be entitled to compensation if reckless behaviour caused you to fall awkwardly and break a bone or if a playing surface was unsafe and led to a serious injury such as ligament damage. If someone else was to blame for your misfortune then you have a right to pursue a personal injury claim, however harmless their intentions. Accident Advice Helpline has dealt with claims involving match officials, organisers of events, players, owners of sports grounds and match officials since it was established in 2000. You may also claim against a healthcare professional if they failed to diagnose or treat an injury adequately and it subsequently led to side-effects or long-term injuries.
Clients can claim for sporting injury compensation for injuries that took place in any arena or location across the UK. For example, you may have been injured while at work during lunchtime or at a university or college. Alternatively, you may have been working as a member of the armed forces or playing on private property. Whatever the circumstances, our trained solicitors can make a case for compensation. We will use a variety of documents and information to build your case, including your medical notes. The accident has to be reported either by your employer or schoolteacher for you to make a claim or, if it was a recreational game between friends, you need evidence from witnesses directly involved as a means to prove that a player or referee was negligent.
