Have you suffered a sporting injury?
If you’re a keen sportsperson, or have even taken up sport as a hobby, you may be aware that it’s not without risks. Although people often assume that contact sports, such as rugby and football, run the risk of injury, even non-contact sports can result in injuries from time to time.
Perhaps the most at risk of injury, people who undertake extreme sports are often aware that they could be hurt whilst enjoying their hobby or pastime. Although some extreme sports can only be undertaken in specific location, such as near the sea, the increasing popularity of such sports means that venues are popping up all over the United Kingdom.
Whilst many people assume that you can’t make a claim for compensation following a sport related injury, this isn’t always the case. Whilst a personal injury lawyer in Ashford-in-the-Water may not be able to help you make a claim for every bump and bruise which occurs whilst playing sports, there are some sporting injuries which could result in a successful compensation claim.
Could a personal injury lawyer in Ashford-in-the-Water help you?
If you’ve experienced an injury or illness which wasn’t your fault, it’s possible that a personal injury lawyer in Ashford-in-the-Water could help you to make a claim for compensation and this can extend to sporting injuries.
If, for example, someone deliberately set out to hurt you whilst you were playing sports, a personal injury lawyer in Ashford-in-the-Water could help you to make a claim against them. Alternatively, if you were given faulty equipment to use or received incorrect instruction, you could make a compensation claim with help from a personal injury lawyer in Ashford-in-the-Water.
What about the cost?
When making a compensation claim, both with a personal injury lawyer in Ashford-in-the-Water and without, many claimants worry about the cost and how to fund their claim. Unfortunately, some personal injury law firms still require claimants to pay upfront fees which can make it difficult, or impossible, for many people to make a claim.
