Sports and Leisure Injury Claims

Thousands of people make successful claims every year

We have expertise in handling sports and leisure injury claims on a No Win No Fee basis which means that you do not have to pay any legal fees if your claim is unsuccessful.

When playing sports or performing leisure pursuits, there is always some element of risk but you may still be able to claim compensation when your injury is somebody else’s fault.

Our sports injury lawyers have helped recover compensation in respect of a variety of sports including:

  • football
  • rugby
  • horse riding
  • trampolining
  • gym accidents
  • snow sports

Gyms can be dangerous places containing heavy equipment that can cause serious harm.  Gym and fitness centres have a duty to keep you safe while you are training.  You could pursue a gym injury compensation claim if you have suffered an injury as a result of instructors providing poor advice, hazards not being cleared away including weights and water spillage, and faulty equipment. 

Horse riding injury compensation

We also have expertise in pursuing claims for compensation in relation to horse riding accidents where the incident was caused by someone else’s mistake.  We will consider what could have been done to prevent your accident and help you pursue a claim against the responsible party.  Our expert lawyers have helped people make horse riding claims after being injured whilst working with horses, participating in competitions, watching competitions, and in road traffic accidents.

We also have extensive experience in helping people pursue football injury claims.  These claims usually happen as a result of poor pitch conditions or tackles and general play that goes outside of the standard rules of the game. 

Sports injuries can lead to very severe injuries such as:

  • spinal injuries
  • brain and head injuries
  • paralysis
  • amputation
  • loss of sight
  • chronic pain

We will ensure that you recover the compensation to reflect the severity of your injury.  To work out how much compensation you are entitled to, we will take into account factors such as:

  • loss of earnings to cover any time you have had off work in the past and in the future
  • the severity of the injury
  • treatments you undergo
  • any possible adaptations to your living arrangements and home
  • medical and travel expenses
Time Limits

You have three years from the date of the accident in which to make your claim in relation to a sporting and leisure accident.  We know that an injury caused by somebody else can have life changing consequences, and we know what positive action to take to recover compensation.
We will also ensure that rehabilitation is provided for you as this is an important part or many claims.  We will ensure you have access to specialist medical care in relation to your injury.
