Although every player in a sport’s team risks injury due to the competitive nature and physical activity involved, if you have suffered an injury that was the fault of an opponent or team member, you may now be seeking volleyball injury advice. Accident Advice Helpline, established in 2000, is a specialist claims company. We can assist you with a sporting accident compensation claim if the injury was sustained during the last three years and you received medical treatment for it. Call our free, 24-hour helpline to find out more about the claims process.
You can make a claim for a sporting injury regardless of the location in which it took place. For example, it may have happened while playing a match at school, university or at work or while on private property or on a council-owned property. The evidence required will differ slightly depending on where the incident took place. If it happened at work, the accident will have to be reported by your employer for you to make a claim, while a school accident will have to be noted down in an accident book, which is required by law to be updated regularly. These reports will help our expert solicitors to get the compensation you need. Any additional evidence will also help your case, including photographs of the injury and names of, and accounts by, eyewitnesses.
Volleyball is a non-contact sport so it is unlikely that you will have been injured directly by an opponent. Typical volleyball injuries you could claim for include slipping and breaking an ankle on an unsafe playing surface or concussion resulting from a fall. You may also have suffered an eye injury after being struck by the ball. A third party must be to blame if you are going to pursue a compensation claim.
If you have been injured while playing a recreational sport it can have a huge impact on your day-to-day life and can force you to miss work for weeks or even months. A successful claim will cover general living costs, loss of earnings, therapy and any unavoidable private medical fees. It may also pay for counselling if you were traumatised by what happened. A claim will not only give you the peace of mind that you will not be stretched financially but will also bring a sense of justice to the situation. You should not be made to pay for an accident that was not your fault.
