Possibly no compensation for football injuries
Injuries sustained while playing a sport, and football injuries are no exception, do not normally warrant compensation. This is because the person playing in a sport accepts just by taking part, that there is the possibility of being injured in play.
So a bad tackle by another player that breaks your leg, or a punch in a boxing match that damages your eye, does not make you eligible to claim compensation.
If however, some sporting equipment you are training with is faulty and you are injured, that is a different matter. If you are a spectator at a sporting event and injured through no fault of your own, you might be able to claim. If you work at a sporting venue, in any capacity, and are injured through the negligence of your employer, you could possibly claim compensation from them.
It is only the players that are far less likely to be able to make a claim, if their injuries are sustain while playing the game.
Making a claim if you are eligible
You can make a claim if:
- You were injured in an accident that was not your fault
