At Accident Advice Helpline we have a highly trained team willing to provide support on all areas of accident compensation law, including wheelchair basketball injury advice. We can help you to work out what your legal options are and whether or not you can pursue a compensation claim.
Depending on your circumstances, we may also be able to advise you on how much that claim could be worth. Our wheelchair basketball injury advice is free of charge and doesn’t mean that you are obliged to use our other services. We will not put you under any pressure, so what do you have to lose?
Typical causes of wheelchair basketball injury
Wheelchair basketball can be a dangerous sport, and injuries are not uncommon, but if they result from other people’s undue aggression or negligence, you could still be entitled to compensation. These are some of the most common injuries:
- Sprains and strains in the arms and upper torso.
- Strains of the finger joints.
- Skin damage caused by falls and crashes.
- Severe bruising caused by crashes.
All of these injuries can potentially cause serious problems and some of them, especially if they develop over time, can lead to lasting problems. Traditionally there has been a problem with the legal system not taking injuries to people with disabilities seriously enough, due to a perception that they have less to lose.
Our solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline know that, if anything, injuries suffered by disabled people are more serious because they compound existing limitations. If you choose to claim for your wheelchair basketball injury with us, we will ensure that your case is taken seriously.
How to make a claim
As well as giving wheelchair basketball injury advice, we take on compensation cases. If you would like us to represent you, you will find that our no win, no fee* system can make things much easier financially as you pay nothing upfront.
We are also used to working over the telephone, which can make things a lot easier if you are restricted in your movement because of the way that your injury has affected you.
Claiming is a lot simpler than many people think, especially as we can provide you with an expert sports accident solicitor who will handle the paperwork and draw on existing case law to make a strong case as to why you should receive compensation.
You will be in control throughout and we won’t make any big decisions without your approval, but you leave it to us to do our very best for a successful outcome.
Claiming compensation means that you are not left to pick up the tab for something that is the fault of someone else.
It can cover the cost of everything, from having time off work to receiving specialist physiotherapy treatment.
What is more, by making a claim you send a clear message that whoever was responsible for your injury needs to be more careful in the future. By doing this you can help to protect other athletes.
If you are thinking of claiming, or if you just want to know more about your options, call us today for wheelchair basketball injury advice on: 0800 689 0500.
