Whatever sport you take part in, the risk of injury is an ever-present threat. While most sports people accept the risk of common injuries such as shin splints, tendonitis and other conditions picked up due to their activities, there is still a larger risk of being injured when you are not at fault. Football injuries are some of the most common examples of this, with foul tackles and challenges causing accidents bordering on devastating. If you have a sports injury that wasn’t your fault, you are a victim and as such you may be entitled to compensation.

Dealing with your injury as your claim is processed
As a victim, you deserve compensation for your sport injury claims. Accident Advice Helpline will make sure you are dealt with on a no win, no fee basis so you have nothing to worry about when it comes to your claim. However, due to the nature of sports injuries you may be faced with a long recovery period. Whilst your claim is ongoing, you could follow the tips below to help expedite the healing process (but never go against professional medical advice).
R.I.C.E Method: Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation. This is the first method you should employ on most sports injuries. If you’ve been discharged from hospital or are tending to your own injuries, this is a good method for the initial pain and swelling.
Physiotherapy: A good physiotherapist may be able to help you regain mobility in the aftermath of your sports injury.
Strength and conditioning: The site of injury needs to be strengthened during the healing process to ensure it is able to cope with daily activity after an injury. For instance, a common cartilage tear in a knee can be strengthened with squats.
With Accident Advice Helpline your sport injury claims will be in professional hands. While your injury will take time to heal, they will ensure you gain the compensation you deserve.
