The town of Loughton, next to Epping Forest has a real sporting ethic. But it’s an ethic that brings the solicitors in Loughton into play when people sustain an injury when playing or practising their sport, or while working out at a gym or fitness centre.
The trickiness of sports injuries
Sports injuries can be a little tricky when it comes down to claiming compensation. The fact of the matter is that with most sporting events, participants stretch their own limits to achieve best performance, and sometimes this can result in an injury. In these circumstances the injury would not qualify for compensation. It’s just something that the sportsperson accepts as being part and parcel of taking part in the sport they love.
But if someone was injured in a malicious act, or received wrong advice, or had been given wrong instruction, it’s possible that those circumstances may provide grounds for a claim for compensation, providing any such liability can be proven.
Similarly, if you were working out in a gym or fitness centre and your level of competency was inaccurately assessed, or you were given bad instruction, or if one of the fitness machines malfunctioned and caused you injury, once again, this might constitute grounds for launching a personal injury claim.
