    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Sports Injuries Clinic

    Many personal injuries can happen as a result of playing sports – whether a team game such as rugby, football or hockey, or an individual sport like squash, cycling or tennis. In many cases, sporting injuries occur as part and parcel of the discipline, and can be mitigated by warming up and cooling down, for example. However, in some cases the injury will have been someone else’s fault, such as in the case of equipment failure or a lack of proper training, and this means you may be entitled to claim for compensation.

    Sporting injuries can happen at any level of the game – you may have just started out, be an amateur or even a professional. No matter what your ability, if your injury was not your own fault, occurred within the past three years and resulted in the need for medical attention, it is advised that you check your eligibility to claim.

    I have suffered an injury, what should I do next?

    The most important step to take initially is to seek medical attention, whether at a sports injuries clinic or at your doctor’s surgery. You will need to have evidence that you required medical assistance; a doctor’s report for this is useful.

    I have attended a sports injuries clinic – what is the next step?

    Once you have been to your recommended sports injuries clinic or local doctors, you should get in touch with a compensation provider such as Accident Advice Helpline as soon as possible. You can do this by either filling out our short online claim form and awaiting a call back, or by phoning our 24/7 advice line on 0800 689 0500. You can also use our 30 second calculator – a quick and simple way of confirming your eligibility to claim as well as getting an estimation of the amount of compensation you may be entitled to receive.

    Why should I choose the Accident Advice Helpline?

    With a network of many legal partners, the Accident Advice Helpline has access to lawyers across the county working with us on a no win, no fee* basis. By using a trusted database of legal experts, we are able to match your case with the specialist attention it deserves – sporting injuries are a niche area of personal injury claims, so this is important.

    Do I need any information to hand before I speak to an adviser?

    Our friendly, professional and highly trained advisers will talk you through the claims process, but there are some pieces of information that will be useful to have to hand, including:

    • Any diaries or notes you have made with your account of the accident
    • A report from your sports injuries clinic or doctor
    • Details of any witnesses, including spectators and referees
