AAH handle many St Helens claims for injuries that have been sustained following an accident or incident of some description, including sports injuries. But sports injuries can be a little more tricky in terms of applying for compensation, because in order to qualify for compensation, the blame for any injury, must lie with a third party.
Claim compensation where blame for your injury must be attributable to a third party
In terms of participating in sport, most of the time you either participate through choice or because it is your profession. In both instances, the participant is fully aware of any potential risks, and willingly accepts those risks. Injuries sustained under those circumstances, would not normally qualify for compensation. If however the injury was sustained through extraordinary circumstances, or because you had received poor advice or insufficient training, then it may be possible to launch a claim.
Various criteria that are needed to verify any personal injury claim
The blame being attributable to a third party is only one part of the criteria that authenticates a personal injury claim. The other criteria includes:
- The accident or incident that causes the injury must have taken place within the three years immediately preceding the date you register your claim.
- The nature and seriousness of the injury must be such that it warrants the raising of a claim.
- In order to verify that you did in actual fact suffer an injury you may be asked to supply medical proof in confirmation.
