Have you sustained a sports injury in St Helens?
Although sporting injuries can affect anyone, as more children and teenagers play sports, they are often the group of people which are injured most often. Whilst some injuries are simply part of playing sports, there are some instances in which you, or your child, could be eligible to make a compensation claim for your sports injury in St Helens.
For example, if your child attends a sports club or sports camp and they aren’t properly supervised, and suffer an injury, the person or people responsible for their safety could be held liable and you may be able to pursue them for compensation with help from an injury solicitor.
Similarly, if your child is at school and suffers an injury whilst in a physical education lesson, they could make a claim for compensation with help from an injury solicitor, if they weren’t properly supervised at the time the injury occurred.
Alternatively, if you use sporting equipment which turns out to be faulty and causes you an injury, you could make a claim against the manufacturers. Providing you can show that it was the defect in the product which caused the injury, it’s likely that a personal injury solicitor in St. Helens would be able to assist you in obtaining compensation.
When should you contact an injury solicitor?
Although most people like to contact an injury solicitor as soon as possible after the incident, some people prefer to recover from their injuries first and get over the shock of being hurt.
If you don’t contact an injury solicitor or a personal injury law firm straight away, don’t assume that you’ve missed your chance to obtain compensation.
