    Sports injury cases


    Sports injury cases

    Sports injury cases are currently on the rise, with the bulk of these occurring at weekends when sporting activity is at its highest. Of course, whether we’re talking contact sports or otherwise, all sports involve some risk of injury. Accidental injuries occur all the time and are often inevitable. However, if you’ve been injured playing sport and it was someone’s fault, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.

    Accident Advice Helpline is skilled at dealing with sports injury cases and can help you get sports injury compensation quickly and easily. Most claims can be processed by telephone and most claimants do not need to attend court.

    Can I claim for my sports injury?

    Successful claims have been made after a variety of incidents including:

    • Dangerous tackles (eg. Rugby, football)
    • Any intervention outside the rules of the sport
    • Unsafe or faulty equipment
    • Poorly maintained playing surfaces
    • Poor coaching or supervision

    It may surprise you to learn that sports injury cases can also include spectators injured as a result of poorly maintained facilities.

    How do I prove someone was at fault?

    In all successful sports injury cases, providing evidence of culpability is essential. There are some straightforward steps you can take to help your claim:
