Claim Compensation for a Sports Injury
It is a common misconception that sports related injuries do not allow for the possibility of compensation payments. However, this is not always the case. If you have suffered a injury playing a sport, you should contact our personal injury solicitor** for Leeds to discuss whether or not you are entitled to claim compensation for the injury suffered.
Sports injuries include fractured or broken bones, as well as back and neck injuries. However, it is worth noting that certain sports injuries can be far more serious and even result in long-term paralysis. Such injuries may occur as a result of one incident or over a sustained period of similar incidents.
Sporting Injury Compensation
You may be entitled to compensation if you have suffered a sporting injury as a result of faulty equipment being used during a sporting match or if perhaps a sporting venue has not been properly maintained. Further, you may be entitled to compensation if it is apparent that a competitor has acted illegally and breached a duty of care that they hold towards all other participants.
Make a Claim for an Accident during Sports
In order to asses your claim, our personal injury experts for Leeds will need to understand exactly how the injury was obtained. It would be useful to provide medical notes as this will allow the expert in Leeds to assess the extent of the injury and subsequently provide an estimate regarding how much potential you may be entitled to. The amount of compensation will depend on the injury suffered and the different losses, financial, physical and emotional, that may have been suffered as a direct result of the injury.
Although more of a rare occurrence, you may also be entitled to claim compensation if the injury has occurred whilst you have been watching a sporting event. For example, if the event organisers have not put correct safety procedures in place and there is an accident as a result, you will be entitled to compensation. Further, there may be certain crowd control implications and associated personal injury claims. Regardless of the situation, it is important that you speak to one of our experts for Leeds as soon as possible.
