If I get a sports injury because of someone’s negligence, can I make an injury claim in Saxmundham?
Sports are a fantastic way of keeping fit and having fun. Most people are more than happy to accept the risks involved when partaking, but what if you gain an injury through someone else’s negligence? If those injuries happen because of a legal tackle or move, no problem. However, if someone being reckless or negligent causes the injury, then you may be able to make an injury claim in Saxmundham for compensation.
Don’t I consent to being hurt by partaking?
By taking part in a game or sport, you are consenting to the normal injuries that can occur in that sport. Particularly in sports such as rugby, football, boxing, wrestling and the like, injuries will happen as part of the game and that is nothing unusual.
There may be others who attend a sporting event but need to make a claim
At any sporting event, there are a whole host of people present. That is without the referees, managers, trainers, people serving in bars and cafes, as well as many others. All of these are at risk if something goes wrong at the arena. It’s not just the sportspeople who may want to make an injury claim in Saxmundham.
There are many things you can claim for
The severity of injuries can vary greatly. Any longstanding effects on your quality of life must also be taken into account, as well as such things as:
- Extra medical costs, like prescriptions or medical devises;
- Travel costs to and from medical appointments;
- The cost of care if you are no longer able to look after yourself;
- Replacement of damaged goods;
- Pain and suffering;
- Anxiety and stress;
- Loss of earnings past, present and future;
- Home adaption or home moving costs if necessary;
- The cost of doing jobs you would previously have done yourself; and
- Any other cost or loss that is a direct result of the injury.
