Understanding sports injuries

A sports injury is any kind of harm or damage you suffer while playing sports, exercising, or doing any physical activity. Sports injuries, by their nature, can vary widely. Some of the circumstances we have been able to help include:

  • Rugby injuries (amateur, semi-professional or professional)
  • Football Injuries ( sunday league – professional)
  • Gymnastics injuries
  • Equestrian injuries
  • Motorsport 
  • Climbing Injuries
  • Snow Sport Accidents ( in the UK or abroad)
  • School sport injuries 

Beyond the immediate physical pain, sports injuries can also include multitudes of emotional and financial strain, challenging your ability to work, engage in daily life, or simply enjoy your hobbies as before.

We’re here to help. You can call us on 0800 0448488 or email or request a call back

Your rights and eligibility for compensation

To make a successful compensation claim we need to be able to prove that your injury was caused partly or fully by someone else.

While it’s common to get injured while playing contact sports such as rugby or football, there are cases where an inury might lead to a compensation claim. These include: 

  • lack of proper training or supervision: Injuries resulting from inadequate training or insufficient supervision by coaches or staff
  • using damaged, defective, or improperly maintained sports equipment
  • injuries due to unsafe conditions on the field, court, or within sporting facilities, including slippery surfaces or obstacles.
  • lack of proper safety equipment such as helmets
  • violations of rules or aggressive play
  • negligent behaviour of other participants
  • injuries stemming from lack of warm-up or stretching

How can compensation help?

Though no amount of money can reverse the injury, compensation plays a vital role in mitigating the financial hardships that can follow:

  • ongoing care and assistance
  • loss of earnings
  • accessing treatment
  • medical equipment
  • home adaptations
  • counselling

Plus, pursuing your claim can help those involved learn lessons and prevent future issues.
