Pontypridd accident claim solicitors
Rugby is one of the more dangerous sports you can play – two large men colliding into each other at a combined speed of around 30 mph – it’s like having a car crash every time. Small wonder then that injuries are incredibly common. Indeed, statistics looking into professional rugby found that around one in four players are injured at any one time during the rugby season. Many of these injuries are relatively minor and will involve a complete recovery, but many of them can be much more serious. It’s not unknown for people to have been paralysed for life after an accident, while a few people have lost their lives.
Further complications arise when you think about injuries to young up and coming players. A teenager, for example, might be coming up through the youth side, but suffer a severe break of an ankle which stops his development. In this case there are multiple things to take into account – not only is there the seriousness of the injury itself, but there is also the impact it has had on his future in the game. If he does not go onto enjoy as good a career as he could have done, compensation could be deemed due for the lost potential future earnings.
