With the festivities and Christmas celebrations well and truly over, many are turning to the New Year with a determination to get fit. Whilst many of us over indulge during the festive season, a significant number of people opt to start new nutritional plans and healthy regimes in January.
For many people, this involves joining a new gym or taking up a new sport. Whilst getting fit and healthy is an admirable goal, it’s important to take things slowly and build up your fitness, rather than trying too much too soon. If, for example, you haven’t done much exercise recently, you may want to start off with some shorter jogs and aim for a 5km run, rather than training for a marathon straightaway.
If you do too much exercise too soon, you can put yourself at an increased risk of injury. Rather than helping us to get fit, too much exercise can actually be a hindrance and could limit your progress over the next few months. By following professional advice and taking things slowly, you could help to avoid injuries whilst you exercise.
However, even taking all the appropriate steps can’t always help you evade an injury. Sometimes, they simply seem inevitable and there may be nothing you can do to avoid it. If you have been hurt whilst playing sports or exercising and it wasn’t your fault, you may be able to make a compensation claim with help from expert injury solicitors in South Shields.
Accident Advice Helpline for your expert injury solicitors in South Shields
Although many people assume that you can’t claim for compensation following an injury picked up during sports, in some situations you can. If, for example, you used equipment which was defective and you were subsequently injured, it’s likely that the manufacturers would be liable and an injury solicitor could help you to successfully obtain compensation.
Of course, before you make a claim, you might want to find out more of what will be expected of and what’s involved when you make a claim. Unlike local expert injury solicitors in South Shields and personal injury law firms, we’re happy to provide free no obligation advice. This means that we can help potential claimants find out everything they need to know before they decide whether or not to proceed with their compensation claim.
