    Sports Injury Claim


    It can be difficult to distinguish between an accidental sports injury and one that was caused deliberately, or through reckless behaviour on the sports field. If you have concerns about an injury you have suffered whilst playing sport, our specialist lawyers can advise you and help you make a sports injury claim for compensation.

    If you suspect that your injury has been caused by recklessness or negligence, there are certain things you can do at the time of the incident:

    • Take a note of the names of any witnesses, these may be spectators, staff, or other players
    • If you are able, take photos of where the incident took place and of your injury
    • Write down your account of what happened in detail, as soon as possible after the incident
    • Seek medical treatment straight away

    Our Specialist Legal Partners

    Making a sports injury claim is a specialist area of law due to the difficulty in proving that the incident was not accidental. Playing any sport can be dangerous in itself, and proving that a bad tackle was hostile rather than just accidental can be tricky, although not impossible.

    Accident Advice Helpline have a nationwide network of professional legal partners who we can call upon to help you, if you decide to make a sports injury claim. Just give our 24-hour helpline a call and one of our advisors will take a few details of your injury, and the circumstances behind it.

    Starting A Sports Injury Claim

    Having heard how the claims process works, if you decide to go ahead we will put you in touch with the best sports injury lawyer in your area, who will process your claim and represent you in court. Claim amounts can never be guaranteed but because our legal partners work on a no win no fee basis, there will be nothing to pay when you begin a claim.

    Suffering an injury whilst taking part in a sporting activity you enjoy can be particularly hard to recover from. In addition to being in pain, you are unable to take part in the sport you enjoy, through no fault of your own. If you start a sports injury claim it will make you feel that you are doing something positive, so take our 30-second test or give our helpline a ring to see if you are eligible to make a claim.
