Making an accident claim in Lilleshall

If you do a sport, you may think that accidents and injuries are just part of that sport. if you play a contact sport such as rugby, you probably expect to be injured at some time during your playing career. However, if you were injured in an illegal tackle, then you could probably make an injury claim against the player who tackled you, or the team.
You could also make an injury claim if you fell whilst running on an athletics track if the surface was uneven. Owners of sporting facilities have a responsibility to maintain their premises and equipment so that risks of accidents and injuries to the members of the public are minimised.
If you have an accident in a gym which was caused by faulty equipment, then you may be able to make an injury claim. You could also be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim if your personal trainer or coach pushed you beyond your physical capabilities, causing you to injure yourself.
