Have you been injured whilst playing sports? It’s pretty disheartening, isn’t it, to get into an accident when all you’re trying to do is improve your fitness.
We all know that there are certain risks that you can’t avoid when you’re exercising. Indeed, we expect that something might go wrong at some point – a sprain, through lifting something too heavy, or perhaps a collapse, just because we’ve overdone it a bit.
But sometimes, there’s the possibility to claim compensation if you’ve been injured in an accident that happened during a game of sports or some solo exercise. You could seek advice and assistance from an accident lawyer in Warrington.
What kinds of accident can be claimed for?
Anything that has been caused by someone else and resulted in personal injury to you can be claimed for. If you’re not sure whether you qualify, why not take Accident Advice Helpline’s 30 second test? This is available on our website, and will tell you very quickly whether you can go ahead with a claim.
Think about where it happened, and what might have contributed to the accident. For example, if you were exercising at home, and you fell over and broke your ankle, you would have to chalk that one up to experience.
But if you were in a leisure centre and you fell over after slipping on a gym floor on which something had been spilt, you could claim against the leisure centre for the pain, suffering and loss of amenity you experienced as a result of your broken ankle – as well as any expenses you incurred as a result.
