There are some nasty injuries you could sustain from a rugby accident. In some well-documented recent cases, we have unfortunately seen some fatalities, although on the whole, most rugby accident injuries are moderate and only require rest afterwards. If you have recently received injuries in a rugby accident, you may be thinking that it’s not really worth the time it takes to claim compensation. Perhaps you think it’s all a hassle. You’re entitled to that opinion, but it’s a shame.
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we always think that claiming for your injuries is a good idea. Suffering any sporting injury means you are inconvenienced, either physically or financially, and in some cases, psychologically too.
Can you claim for your rugby accident?
You may think because your injuries were not very severe you don’t want to go to the fuss of a claim, but consider for a moment who is at fault for your accident. As long as the accident was the fault of someone else, you can make a claim against them. What about the role of a referee in preventing a rugby accident? Should your referee have stopped play? Perhaps they should have seen something was wrong sooner than they did, or perhaps they let a player carry on who shouldn’t have been on the pitch. If they – or someone else – was at fault, of course you can claim against them.
Why bother? Because there are steps to take to prevent a rugby accident, and any club, or any official that doesn’t take these steps, or take player safety seriously, should be held to account. Don’t you agree?
How soon should you claim?
Another question we are asked frequently, is how soon after a rugby accident should I claim? Well, we recommend that you claim as soon as treatment for injuries sustained from a rugby accident has been completed, or if treatment will be ongoing for a while, claim as soon as you know what the long-term prognosis will be. In any case, you must claim within three years of the accident.
