There are several boroughs within London, and Merton is one of them. The region derives its name from the parish, Merton, which is now known as South Wimbledon. If you are a sports enthusiast or a tennis fan, you’d know that this is where the Wimbledon tennis tournament takes place.
Is it possible to file a claim after sustaining sporting injuries?
Yes, you can. When one sustains any form of injury to their body, through no fault of their own, it is possible to file a personal injury compensation claim against the person who caused the accident.
Several people often hurt themselves while playing a sport. However when an individual forms a claim against another sportsman, the club or league that they are playing for, that is directly or indirectly involved with the sport, it can be quite a difficult process.
Anyone making such a claim hopes to make monetary compensation for the suffering inflicted upon them. Whether or not they succeed in doing so depends upon their ability to prove their innocence, and how skilled their lawyer is. The burden of acquiring proof is on them, which means they must establish:
- They suffered physical, psychological or emotional harm
- The party at fault was responsible for the injuries they sustained
- They incurred financial losses as they had to take time of work to fully recover
