We have a team of experienced Solicitors who specialise in obtaining compensation in respect of sports related injuries. We have assisted Claimants recovering compensation in respect of most sports including but not limited to football, rugby, trampolining and gym accidents.


Sport participation claims

If you have experienced any of the following you may be entitled to compensation:

  • Improper tackle – inappropriate or aggressive

  • Poor coaching – misdirection by a coach or trainer when advising players

  • Poor maintenance of playing fields and equipment

  • Violent behaviour on the playing field

Spectator injuries

We will also be able to assist you in pursuing a claim if you have suffered an injury whilst spectating. Injuries can occur as a result of:

  • Gaming equipment – balls frequently find their way into the crowd which can result in serious injuries

  • Cars veering off track – rally cars losing control and veering off into the crowd

  • Poorly maintained stadiums or grounds – roof, seats or barriers collapsing

Can I claim for a sports injury?

It is a common misconception that only a sporting professional can pursue a sports injury claim. Provided your sports injury was caused by the negligence or recklessness of another individual, anyone may be eligible to claim financial compensation.

If another player, referee or umpire or individuals responsible for the upkeep of sporting facilities are negligent then you may be eligible to pursue a claim.

The following will generally result in a sports injury claim:

  • A referee or other responsible person was negligent in their duty to nullify situations posing unnecessary risks to players.

  • A trainer or manager did not provide appropriate supervision, resulting in injury.

  • Sports equipment or facilities were allowed to develop dangerous defects due to poor maintenance.

  • Another player demonstrated extreme recklessness or obviously dangerous conduct.

  • A formal sports trainer gave incorrect sporting advice or direction, resulting in an injury.

If your sports injury occurred as a result of any of the above situations contact an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.
