    Pontypool compensation

    When you think of Pontypool you also think of rugby. The sport is lifeblood to the entire area with echoes of the old Pontypool front row reverberating everywhere. The only drawback is that this is one of the more dangerous sports you’ll find anywhere and accidents do happen. Call Accident Advice Helpline today if you need Pontypool compensation. 

    Pontypool compensation for a rugby accident

    The basic rules of personal injury law state that if you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, you should be entitled to claim compensation as a result. The accident might be the result of someone else’s actions or someone not putting provisions in place to prevent an accident.

    More often than the safety of everyone playing in a game of rugby would be the preserve of whatever organisation owns or runs the premises. They are required to take all reasonable precautions to ensure that the main risks facing anyone on a rugby field are all addressed and if it is judged that they have failed in their duty then they may have to pay money as a result.

    Assessing a claim

    This type of claim is often one of the more specialist areas of personal injury law and will probably require someone who has knowledge of sports injuries. This is because the measures any sports club can take to avoid injury will be somewhat different to any other pubic place. The risks are that much higher and the simple truth will be that some accidents are simply unavoidable. If that happens then no matter how bad the injury then there will not be any entitlement to compensation from the rugby club.

    In some cases there may also be a case for criminal injury. You often hear stories of people who have had their eyesight damaged because they have been gouged. This amounts to common assault and the perpetrator should be prosecuted accordingly, but because this happens on a rugby field it is often allowed to pass. We don’t believe that should be the case and if someone has caused criminal injury on a rugby field or anywhere else they should be required to pay up.
