A football injury claim is a straightforward process and much the same as other injuries when it comes to pursuing compensation. Claiming for a football injury is easy, and you don’t need to be a professional football player to make a claim. If another player makes a malevolent or late tackle it can cause a major injury. And if someone else is at fault then you might be able to make a claim for compensation.
It is straightforward to use a personal injury solicitor, who will pursue a compensation claim for your injuries. Basic risks are normal in sport, but you could be entitled to make a sports injury claim if you suffered an injury that was someone else’s fault. Football injury claims can be complicated and sometimes complex to pursue. So it is a good idea to work with someone who is experienced and who will stay with you every step of the way. Take our 30-second test to see if you can make a claim for your injury.
Collecting evidence for your football injury claim
Solicitors continuously hanker after as much evidence as they can lay their hands on to support a claim and for a football injury claim even more so due to the ambiguity of whether or not there are applicable grounds to make a claim. For example, if you take a tumble and damage your knee due to problems with the pitch then you must take pictures of the issue to establish that it made the playing surface dangerous, and so caused your injury.
What sort of injuries can you claim for?
If someone else is at fault for your injury while you are taking part in a sports match such as football, then there is a wide variety of injuries for which you can claim compensation. You can even claim if you are just watching a football match and are injured due to the irresponsible behaviour of someone else. You might have sprained your ankle, due to the state of the pitch, torn a ligament due to the inappropriate actions of another player, or you may have been injured at a football match while sitting in the stands and a seat collapses.
There are many different ways that a football injury claim comes about.
