Sporting accident


If you have been injured in a sporting accident, you might be wondering if you are entitled to claim compensation. Maybe you were injured because the equipment you were using was faulty, or maybe you encountered a deliberate and dangerous assault on the football pitch. You might even have been a spectator at a sporting event, and sustained an injury in an unexpected accident.

Whatever the circumstances surrounding your sporting injury, it could be worth your while chatting to Accident Advice Helpline. We are the claim experts, and if you are eligible to make a claim, we will work hard to get you the maximum compensation you deserve.

Common injuries

Some of the most common injuries you could sustain from a sporting accident include ankle sprains and knee injuries. Whether you play sport as part of a team or as an individual, you will probably encounter these kinds of injuries sooner or later. For the most part, they are purely down to the physical nature of the activity, and no one is at fault.

However, in other cases, it may be that someone else was to blame for the accident. For example, if you rent substandard bikes at an outdoor pursuits centre, you could be placed in danger through no fault of your own. Under these circumstances, it could be relatively easy to prove who is liable for a sporting accident. Indeed, the owner of the centre will have been legally negligent in their obligation to safely maintain their bikes. As such, you may be able to pursue a claim against them.


As with any accident, the appropriate treatment for sporting accident injuries will depend on the severity of the injury. In the case of minor cuts or bruising, it will probably be enough to wash and dress the area, and take analgesia as necessary. Your pharmacist will advise you as to the best over the counter treatments for pain or swelling. However, for a more serious injury, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible. In an emergency, dial 999 for an ambulance.
