    Football accident


    Every weekend, people up and down the country go out to play or watch football. We all know that the players can be injured on the field, and this is all part of the game. This is not the only way that a football accident can happen. If your injury is due to poor equipment or lack of training, then you may be able to claim compensation.

    Who is liable for a football accident will depend very largely on how it happened. If you’re not sure, then a personal injury solicitor can help you with this. If you can provide photographs of the scene of the accident, or the contact details of any witnesses, it can be a lot easier finding out who was responsible.

    The injuries you could sustain from a football accident can range from a minor knock to a nasty bang on the head. If poorly stacked equipment lands on you, this can cause some very painful injuries indeed.

    Some clubs and venues will have someone on hand to provide treatment for injuries sustained from a football accident, and these are often trained in first aid. A proper assessment by a qualified doctor should be carried out as well, just to make sure that your injury is not too serious.

    How to protect yourself from a football accident

    Most clubs and sports venues will have measures in place, and know the steps to take to prevent a football accident. Equipment will usually have proper storage space and showers will have non-slip floors.

    If your club provides a trainer, they will usually make sure that they are properly accredited, so they know you will not be injured as a result of their training.

    Football matches also have spectators, and they can be injured too. Any seating should be checked and secure and walkways should be cleared of ice.
