    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Lawyer in Sidmouth


    Physical activity is undoubtedly beneficial for your health. However, when you choose to play a sport, you must consent to a certain level of risk. This means that if you sustain an injury as part of normal play, you will not be entitled to claim compensation for your pain and suffering. However, if you have an accident and suffer an injury as a result of someone else’s careless actions, you may be legally entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation.

    Claiming compensation for an accident in Sidmouth

    Common claims for sports-related accidents tend to centre on the following hazards:

    • Playing surface defects
    • Unsafe equipment
    • Negligent refereeing
    • Inadequate supervision, instruction or training
    • Violent, reckless or dangerous behaviour demonstrated by your fellow participants

    If you have suffered an injury following encountering one or more of these hazards, you must seek immediate medical attention. In doing so, you will be able to ease your pain and suffering, and allow a medical expert to create a written record of the nature and severity of your injury. If the venue at which you were playing sport has an accident book, you should use it to detail the circumstances of your accident and the type of personal injury you have sustained. You should also contact an accident lawyer in Sidmouth to determine whether you are eligible to receive compensation.
