If you’re partial to taking part in the occasional game of rugby, you will need to be prepared for the fact that you might suffer the odd bump and bruise as part of the rough and tumble of play. Playing a game that’s so rough will inevitably lead to the odd injury. You’ll have to take it on the chin if you’re injured while playing rugby if no foul play was involved, but if you were to be hurt after a player on the opposing team tackled you in an unsportsman-like fashion, you could have grounds to launch a personal injury compensation claim if you were to end up with a whiplash injury in Ballycastle.
Rugby and a whiplash injury in Ballycastle
In rugby, it is illegal to make a tackle above the shoulders. One of the reasons for this is precisely because such a move might result in a whiplash injury in Ballycastle. If an opposing player tried to grab you around the neck with one arm while you were pelting down the field attempting to make a try, there would be a very real possibility that you could suffer a whiplash injury, or even worse.
If this were to happen to you and you could prove that the player who injured you intentionally made an illegal tackle, there will be a possibility that you may have a strong case for compensation on your hands. You can find out if this might be the case by picking up the phone right now and calling Accident Advice Helpline on one of our helpline numbers.
