    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Accident Lawyer in St Albans

    Exercise injuries may not seem like obvious things to claim compensation for. After all, when you’re exercising, surely it’s pretty risky? Isn’t it up to you to take care of yourself?

    That’s what a lot of people think, and to some extent, they’re correct. But an accident lawyer in St Albans could help in some cases – because not everything is clear-cut.

    Eligibility to claim

    If you’ve had an exercise injury, you could check whether you qualify to claim by going to Accident Advice Helpline’s website and taking our 30 second test. Just input a few details and you’ll get your answer.

    Alternatively, just call our hotline and you can tell an advisor what happened. They’ll be able to tell you whether you qualify for compensation.

    Some people reading this might still be wondering how an accident lawyer in St Albans could possibly deal with a claim for a sporting injury, though – so let us tell you about it.

    Claiming through an accident lawyer in St Albans

    Sometimes, a sporting injury can occur through no fault of the person doing the exercising. Consider these scenarios:

    Ms A is windsurfing for the first time. She undertakes the induction and listens carefully to the instructor. She goes into the water, but gets into trouble. She escapes drowning, but she is rushed to hospital with a head injury, and she’s pretty shaken. Later, it is found that she did everything that the instructor told her – but the trouble is, some of what she was told to do was incorrect.


    Mr B is running. He has the correct shoes on, which he had fitted at a specialist running shop, where his gait was analysed. Three miles into his run, he falls and breaks his leg. There are no potholes – in fact, the surface is level and has plenty of traction. He looks at his shoe later and finds that it is broken. The manufacturer confirms that there is a major fault with the shoe, which caused it to break.
