Let us take the strain out of making your injury claim
Whilst every one knows the benefits of taking regular exercise to maintain health and well being, sudden impact or movements can cause sporting injuries even when protective equipment is being used. If you, or someone you know, has suffered a sporting injury as a result of an accident or incident that wasn’t their fault within the last three years, then you are legally entitled to make a claim with an injury claims lawyer in Latimer or anywhere in the UK, to help you every step of the way.
If you’ve ever had to go to the accident and emergency department of a hospital at the weekend, you’ll know that more often than not, the place is full to the rafters of people who have suffered sporting injuries. Most injuries are caused by slipping, or through contact with another player or equipment and they will not be entitled to compensation.
However if your sporting injury was as the result of carelessness or negligence – say because of lack of safety instruction or faulty equipment, then you are perfectly within your rights to make a claim for compensation. This is why you might be searching for an injury claims lawyer in Latimer.
Treatment for sporting injuries
It is important to seek a medical opinion for an injury sustained through sport to establish the nature of the injury and ensure that treatment is given at an early opportunity to avoid further complications. To diagnose the injury, you may be referred for an X-ray, CT scan or MRI to determine the extent of the injury and inform further treatment.
Even if the injury doesn’t require surgical intervention, it is important to follow medical advice about rest, recuperation, mobility and exercise. Whilst rest is important to aid recovery, staying immobile for a period of time can lead to stiffness of the joints and may cause further discomfort and swelling.
