Using a Rugby law firm of injury claim solicitors to help you to claim compensation for an injury you’ve received in conjunction with playing or watching Rugby Football would seem quite appropriate. From a playing point of view, however, claiming compensation for an injury could be rather limited.
In order to warrant compensation, any injury you’ve sustained has to be considered to be someone else’s fault, but when you play a physical contact sport like rugby, to all intents and purposes, you accept an increased risk of injury. In reality, you are, to a certain extent, willingly putting yourself in harms way.
Typical qualifying factors of sports injury claim
To qualify for compensation you would have to be able to show that the training you were given, or the advice that you were given, were the direct cause of your injury. In terms of being injured as a spectator in a slip, trip or fall accident for example, in you would have to shown that someone else was responsible for the incident, and that it was not your own carelessness, negligence or over-exuberance that led to you being injured.
With the qualifying factors addressed, you can look for a good Rugby law firm
The other qualifying factors, other than the blame factor, are that the injury or incident that caused the injury has to have happened within the three years immediately preceding the date you raise your claim, and you will need to be prepared to back up your claim with appropriate medical proof. If you can successfully tick all of these boxes, then it’s highly likely that there is a valid case to answer, and you can set about finding a Rugby law firm to help to launch your claim.
