Types of Sports Injury Claims
It is not only the participants of a sporting event who are at risk, spectators also run the chance of injury, if security and safety at the venue has been underestimated or neglected completely.
Listed below are some of the most common types of sports injury claims that we have dealt with in the past:
- Damaged/Poorly maintained pitch/playing area
- Faulty sports equipment
- Illegal/Violent tackles or physical challenges
- Lack of supervision/refereeing where conduct needs to be disciplined
- No supervision/policing in crowds/potentially dangerous areas
- Unqualified trainer/teacher
- Violent behaviour in the crowd
If you have been injured while participating in a sporting event or injured while attending a sporting occasion as a spectator, contact us today for free friendly advice on how to claim.
Rules need to be governed within a sports arena, whether that is the referee or umpire within a sports game, or a steward or security in the crowd. Players have the right to play the match or game fairly and without risk of dangerous personal injury to themselves.
Sports injuries can not only affect a playing career but also the player’s quality of life in general. Illegal tackles and conduct is an element of sport that needs to be wiped out completely; but in the meantime, sports injury compensation is the only way for accident victims to secure justice for such an unfortunate event.
Similarly, spectators have the right to attend a sports game without needing to feel at risk or threatened by unruly violent behaviour. Games that have the potential for violence or misconduct need to be appropriately marshalled in order for all in attendance to enjoy themselves, especially when they have paid money or made the effort to travel to see a sports game.
Making Sports Injury Claims for Compensation
Many people play sport as a leisure activity to help keep them fit and active. Others play competitively and more regularly. However, accidents and injuries can occur at any time and at any level. At times injuries are totally accidental, however sometimes they could be avoided. In these cases it is possible to make a claim for sports injury compensation.
Sports can invoke actions in people that they would not normally do. Adrenalin and competitiveness can take over and this is when accidents can happen, even to the calmest of people. Injuries can occur to people playing sports, as well as spectators.
For all circumstances, sports injury claims can be made if the accident was not your fault and the incident could have been avoided.
Playing sports can present dangers. Sports such as football or rugby involve physical contact and can mean a player gets battered, bruised and sometimes worse.
Most players are aware that although most of the time they will get to play the game they love, there will be times where this will not be possible due to injury. However, only when a tackle is made with intent to harm can a claim for sports injury compensation be made.
Here at Injuries Direct we can assist you with your sports injury claim, whether that is as a player or spectator. We have access to a number of compensation claim solicitors who can manage your case and get you the money you are entitled to, based on their knowledge or the system and previous cases.
