    No win no fee sports injury claims

    Sporting injuries can be a common occurrence, and in some instances may be an accepted risk of a particular activity. Some sports may pose higher risks than others – for example, runners are often prone to knee injuries, boxers may be at high risk from a broken nose, and footballers often damage their hamstring or groin muscle. However, in some cases someone else may be to blame for your injuries, and you should therefore pursue your entitlement to no win no fee sports injury claims.

    What are no win no fee sports injury claims?

    If you have been involved in a sporting accident during the past three years whereby someone else was to blame and you required medical attention as a result, then you may be entitled to make no win no fee sports injury claims.

    No win no fee sports injury claims are in place to protect you in cases of negligence. This may include:

    • Faulty equipment leading to an accident
    • Lack of sufficient training to enable participation
    • Poorly maintained sports field or track
    • Insufficient provision of safety equipment

    Blame may therefore be apportioned to sports clubs, coaches, or manufacturers to name just a few – and it is important to remember that negligence is a serious breach of trust and when resulting in injuries, you are perfectly entitled to make a claim.

    Why is compensation important?

    Taking into account your injury type and severity, compensation goes some way to helping you following an accident. Whilst it cannot reverse what has happened, it may help you to cope whilst you are suffering from your injury. Compensation is in place to cover:

    • Expenses such as medical bills, specialist treatment (in the case of sporting injuries, this will often be a physiotherapist), care costs, and even travel to and from medical appointments.
    • Loss of earnings. It may be that your accident has prevented you from attending your day job either on a short or long term basis, or in some cases you may have a professional sporting career in which case your injury will set you back on a temporary or even permanent basis.

    Compensation may even result in preventative measures being taken to ensure a similar accident does not happen to someone else – perhaps through a review of health and safety measures, more rigorous training or repairs to a poorly maintained section of sports field.
