Sports are either fun or a job, but it does not matter why you are playing, you expect to get injured if it is a rough or contact sport. In playing sports of this type you accept that this may happen to you and have no recourse when it does.
If however, someone makes an illegal tackle, or acts recklessly and causes you an injury, that is a different matter. Then you should speak to injury solicitors in Hoarwithy about making a personal injury claim for compensation.
Injury solicitors in Hoarwithy cannot help with the risks you consent to
You are consenting to the risk of injuries that are part of the game by taking part, but if you sustain an injury that was not part of the game, that stops you working for a while and causes you to suffer, then you may want to make a personal injury claim and should contact injury solicitors in Hoarwithy.
It’s not just the players that should have this concern. The referees, linesmen, managers, coaches and even spectators can be at risk if something goes wrong at an event. It could be that they might want to make a personal injury claim as well.
The sports it is more likely to happen in
There are some sports where it is very unlikely, but not impossible, that you will be injured through someone else’s fault, sports such as chess, snooker or poker. There are many others where the situation is the reverse and you are very likely to be injured, it all comes down to whether that injury was part of the game or not. Just a few of these games and activities are:
- Martial arts
It does not matter which sport you were playing when injured, if it was caused by the reckless or intentional actions of someone else then you have the right to claim compensation.
Accident Advice Helpline is here to help
We have over 16 years’ experience of dealing with personal injury compensation claims and have helped many thousands of claimants get the compensation they deserved after being injured through no fault of their own.
Our helpline has trained professional advisors. A phone call to them, on our freephone number, 0800 689 0500, will be confidential and helpful. They will discuss all aspects of your accident and resulting injuries and will let you know if you qualify to make a claim.
On our website, there is a 30-second test which will give you some guidance as to the amount you may receive. This is only an estimate though because every accident, injury and person’s circumstances are unique. The final amount of your compensation injury claim can be affected by many other factors, such as loss of earnings.
We operate on a no-win, no-fee basis, so you will not need any money to start your claim. We will not ask you to pay any solicitors’ fees if your claim is lost either.
