    Injuries In Sport


    What does a sports injury mean to you? For an amateur player a broken or sprained limb might only cost a season of not being able to participate in a favourite hobby, but it might also mean time off work, partial loss of income or total loss of income for freelancers and other self-employed people. Injuries in sport can be a sprained wrist from a fall during a tennis game, or a broken limb or concussion from a bad tackle in a game of contact sport. For the professional player, this can mean serious disruption to their career. No skier ever went on holiday without accident insurance, but these days, a sports injury can have a detrimental effect on lifestyle or income and the amateur and professional sportsman can buy sports accident insurance.

    Litigation for compensation for injuries in sport is a specialist business and covers many different scenarios. A claimant may have been injured by another player or players, or as a result of negligence or faulty equipment at the place of the sports, or from any combination of these.

    Do I have a legitimate claim?

    It can be hard to prove liability in some instances of sports injuries. This is why you need expert advice. At Accident Advice Helpline we first assess whether you may be eligible to claim. Our online 30-second test will tell you quickly. After the eligibility test, we ask you some simple questions about your injury and it may be possible to estimate what your claim could be worth.
