    Injuries that could be sustained from an accident on a sports pitch

    Helpful advice about injuries that could be sustained from an accident on a sports pitch

    If you use a sports pitch regularly you might expect some injuries now and then. Scrapes and bruises if you play a contact sport or some muscle strains if you enjoy aerobics. Preparing well before any sports activity can help avoid injury. Being aware of the injuries that could be sustained from an accident on a sports pitch can help prevent accidents.

    Forewarned is forearmed they say. If you’re trying out a new sport, speak to a coach or experienced player for some tips on staying safe and fit.

    Sports pitches should be safe pitches

    Many open air sports pitches are run and maintained by the local authority. They are usually well maintained and checked for risk. Local authorities often have a leisure centre or two where indoor activities take place. Swimming pools, though not technically a sports pitch, are places where the public enjoy healthy activities.

    Private enterprises where members pay a monthly fee can be quite luxurious with restaurants and cafés to enjoy after time spent on the sports pitches and in the gyms.

    All of these facilities require regular maintenance and this should be carried out by the person, or persons, responsible. This might be the local authority or a private owner. First aid should be available for treating minor injuries and staff should know what to do if an accident occurs.

    What to do if you’ve had an accident

    Make sure you get some prompt medical attention for your injuries. Don’t ignore a minor injury, you could develop more serious symptoms later.

    The type of injuries that could be sustained from an accident on a sports pitch might include:

    • Head injuries
    • Sprains and strains
    • Cuts, scrapes and bruises
    • Slips, trips and falls
    • Broken bones and fractures

    If you’ve been injured because someone responsible was negligent, then you might be able to claim compensation.
