    Accident Solicitor Shifnal

    The market town of Shifnal in Shropshire is home to several sporting facilities, including an FA School of Excellence. While the idea of partaking in sporting activities in Shifnal is to provide your body with a thorough physical workout, it is possible to suffer from serious injuries while enjoying your favourite sport.

    What are the most common types of sports injuries?

    All sports carry some degree of risk and if your injury occurs after you have tripped up or fallen over for no apparent reason, you will not be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim. Similarly, you will not be able to make a compensation claim if your injury was caused as a result of a legal tackle made by another player.

    If, however, the equipment you were provided with was defective or the playing surface was in a bad state of repair and this caused your injury, you would be able to file a personal injury compensation claim. You would also be eligible to make a claim if you were a spectator and an unsafe public viewing area caused your accident.

    You can file a claim for compensation regardless of whether your injury occurred on:

    • School, college or university premises
    • Work premises
    • Private premises
    • Council-owned or public premises

    What should I do after suffering a sports injury?

    Whether you were playing ice hockey, football, tennis, cricket or rugby, you must allow an accident solicitor in Shifnal to assess your case at your earliest convenience. To win your compensation claim, you will need to provide evidence that someone else was responsible for your injury. To support your case, you should have ideally reported your accident to a member of staff at the sports facility where it occurred and should have asked them to make a note of your accident in their accident book. You should have taken down the names and addresses of any witnesses to your accident and if possible, should have retained photographic evidence of the area where your accident happened.
