Do you need to make a no win no fee Eastleigh accident claim after playing hockey?
Although hockey isn’t a particularly violent sport, accidents and injuries can occur regularly. With players using wooden sticks to hit the puck at high speeds, it’s not surprising that people can hurt from time to time. Of course, most injuries which occur aren’t intentional and they are simply part of the game. If you engage in the sport willingly, you may feel unable to make a no win no fee Eastleigh accident claim if you do suffer an injury.
Whilst it isn’t normally possible to make a no win no fee Eastleigh accident claim for every sporting injury, there are some instances in which it’s appropriate. If, for example, someone was to become aggressive on the pitch and hurt you intentionally, you could make a no win no fee Eastleigh accident claim against them and obtain compensation for your injuries.
Although many adults play hockey, it is also popular with children and young people. Many people include hockey in their physical education lessons and teams from different schools often compete against each other.
When children do play hockey at school, it’s important that they’re taught how to play safely and that they are given the appropriate equipment to use. Goalkeepers, for example, often wear extra protection and a helmet to prevent them from getting hurt. If this isn’t provided and a child is hurt, it may be possible for them to obtain compensation from the school or education authority.
Of course, a person under the age of eighteen can’t normally make a compensation claim on their own. However, their parents or guardians could make a no win no fee Eastleigh accident claim on their behalf and they could still receive compensation for the pain they’ve suffered.
