You may take part in sports for different reasons – to stay fit and healthy or simply because you love the competition, the thrill of the game and particularly with contact sports, the rough and tumble of it all.
But as with most things in life, there are rules and good player conduct regulations in every sporting activity which are there to protect the individual and ensure fair play all round. However, when someone oversteps the mark and is negligent or hostile towards a fellow competitor, it could lead to personal injury.
Football top injury sport
Perhaps not surprisingly, football is number one in the UK for sport injuries – about one third of the nation’s sporting accidents – with rugby in second place, accounting for 13 per cent, according to a survey by a well-known high street bank. Sportsmen in East Anglia spend the most on sports injury treatments. Therefore, having the right accident insurance cover if you play sport on a regular basis is essential.
Accident Advice Helpline can advise you whether your particular circumstances make you eligible to make a sports injury compensation claim, or if you will just have to grin and bear your bruises. Our 24/7 friendly advice helpline is manned by experienced advisers who will carefully explain the claims process to you. There is no obligation to pursue a claim if you do not wish to do so, but if you do decide to go ahead we can contact your sport accident insurance people on your behalf and then connect you with the best sports injury compensation claim lawyer in your area.
With sport accident insurance – or not
If you prefer, we have a simple on-line calculator which can estimate the amount of compensation you might receive. This estimate is based on our comprehensive statistical data gathered from past cases we have processed that are similar to yours. Although it is only an estimate, it can help you decide whether it is worth taking the time to pursue a claim.
It may be that you don’t have sport accident insurance. If the injury was not your fault, then that’s not a problem. Similarly, with sport accident insurance, we can take away all the time-consuming paperwork and bother of you having to deal with your insurer direct. We do it all for you and ensure, through one of our several hundred specialist lawyers in the UK, that we maintain regular contact with the insurers to get a compensation award for your injury as quickly and efficiently as possible.
