Anyone, whether professional, semi professional or amateur can suffer from a sporting injury and make a claim for compensation as long as the injury was caused due to negligence and someone else was to blame for the accident.
Anyone who plays a sport will know that there is a certain level of risk involved and accidents will happen that are unavoidable due to the fact they are simple part of the game, so if you are agreeing to play a sport then you need to be aware of the risk of injury but if an injury occurs that wasn’t part of the game then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
Some examples of when injury occurs during a sport that shouldn’t have happened are as follows:
- Through a dangerous defect on a football pitch or court
- Damaged equipment
- When a referee fails to fulfill their duty and an accident occurs due to this
- Inadequate supervision or training where it would normally be required
- Incorrect instructions from a formal instructor or trainer
- If there is reckless or dangerous moves conducted by players
- Poorly maintained facilities
Many people every year are injured whilst taking part in a sporting activity and the majority of these injuries should have been prevented. If you are one of the many people who are injured every year due to a sporting accident then your first step should be to seek medical attention so the extent of your injury can be found and so that you can start to receive the correct medical care. Any medical treatment will then be recorded on your records so that if you do decide to pursue a compensation claim you have proof of the injuries that you sustained.
If you are hoping to make a claim for compensation after suffering a sporting injury that should have been avoided then it is important that you collect as much information as possible about the accident such as the details of any witnesses and photographs if possible of the accident scene. It is also a good idea to keep any receipts of expenses that you have occurred due to your injury as they can be re-claimed through your compensation.
