Accidents can happen in all sports. It is generally accepted that when playing tackles, knocks and bumps will happen and most sports people expect to have a few pains from playing their sport. That is fine providing they happen a in legal way. If someone does an illegal tackle and causes an injury intentionally or recklessly and someone gets injured because of it, they may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim.
Injury solicitors in Deddington say everyone needs to be careful
Injury solicitors in Deddington are warning that at sporting events, it is not just the players that are at risk. Particularly at large events there are many other potential victims of accidents that are not their own fault, such as:
- Shop assistants
- Grounds men
- Security people
If there are any problems at an arena or stadium, all of these attendees are at risk of injury for which they may want to make a personal injury claim.
How their claim would be compiled
When making a claim for a sporting injury, as with any other type of claim, injury solicitors in Deddington would look at every aspect of how the accident and injuries have affected the victim. Their claim could include:
- Pain and suffering
- Anxiety and stress
- Childcare costs
- Costs of jobs around the home that the victim used to do themselves, such as cleaning, gardening or decorating
- Loss of earnings
- Medical expenses
- Travel costs
- Cost of care if you are no longer able to look after yourself
- Home adaption or home moving costs
- Replacement of damaged goods
Any cost or loss that is a direct result of the accident and injuries can be reclaimed providing you have proof that they have actually happened.
