Making a claim for costs at a sport injury clinic
If you are injured and need to attend a sport injury clinic then it is possible that you might be able to claim personal injury compensation in order to cover the financial impact of attending a sport injury clinic. The sort of problems that are treated at a sport injury clinic include:
- Back and neck pain
- Shoulder/arm and wrist injuries
- Hip/knee/ankle and foot problems
- Muscle/tendon/joint injuries
- Disc and nerve problems
- Bowel problems
- Inflexibility and stiffness
- Incorrect posture
- Tinnitus/jaw problems
Things to remember: keep a record of your injury; take photographs of your physical symptoms if relevant. Take photos as soon as you can after the incident if you have been injured as result of a mismanaged football pitch for example, it might get repaired later on and you would lose your evidence.
Claiming for the cost of treatment at a sport injury clinic
If you are participating in any sort of sporting activity then there is a possibility that injuries might occur, that’s a normal part of life. But if you are injured due to poor refereeing, damaged equipment or inappropriate supervision then this can be seen as neglect and as a result compensation for payment of your treatment might be due to you and can cover the cost of attendance at a sports injury clinic. Sports Centres, clubs and competition venues have liability insurance to cover them in the event of accident claims. Such venues can be held liable if someone is injured as they engaged in sport on their premises. Business liability insurance protects such organisations against claims such as those for termination of an organised event. Sports coaches, fitness instructors and personal trainers more often than not have some kind of sports insurance to safeguard themselves against negligence claims.
